Well i have a over stock of regular Spur gears that I didnt want to let to waste so i came up with a very easy and simple solution to run regular spurs on the MI3 and the it took me less than 5 minutes and less than $2.00 to make. I went to the locar Advance Auto parts store and picked up a "hose tee" for engine vacumm lines part # 47341 for $1.88, then I cut a thin piece of the end (about 3mm). The bearing for the layshaft fits in it perfectly, then i slide the standard spur (after I drilled 2 holes on the spur) and tighten it. Now I can use any standard spur gear on the car Its very easy and the spur gear is alligned perfectly.

Congrats on your win yesterday Wes. All your hard work is paying off.

Jamie made the "A" in super stock. My car was working good. Just over driving it. SP13.5 sure has some rip. But didn't last. It shut down 5 laps into the 1st qualifier. Had to run a trinity 13.5. I don't want to talk about what happen in the main.

Congrat's again Wes.
