Hey all anyone know of a 72T spur gear that I can use on a trf417?

Will this work? TOP-Racing-Products-48P-Spur-Gear-72T

I think it should. I have not tried it yet, but its bolted under my car right now. It is considerably stiffer. The general view is stiffer is better on carpet. I was going to try it tomorrow, but I might have to wait a week due to some other affairs

Too small. You'll have to mill out the motor mount for it to fit smaller spurs. I got a 86T(64P) on with a little milling. Then ended up using 90T(64P).

On the 417X, I've used spurs as small as 60T (48pitch) without any modification. You need this to get the gearing in blink 21.5, which is popular in these here parts...

have fitted and run (only once) 58t (48pitch) spur and 45 pinion, didnt work well in 21.5 blinky

On the top racing spurs the centre of the gear is to small. have found the rw ones work everytime, but they arent very thick.

I prefered it a lot over the X, more grip, more corner speed and much easier to drive than the X. Although by the end of the race meeting Craig thinks the X would have been better

We had a pretty good race meeting this weekend, was an up and down weekend but we had Tamiya's finish 4th, 5th and 10th in mod, and 3rd in 17.5 boosted. We all ran 2.5mm chassis in mod and the new smokem was used in stock. I set the fastest lap of the event, just qualified too far back to do anything with the pace. If anyone wants my setup sheet they can pm me with their email address and ill email it too you.

This weekend was the best my car has ever been for sure, just needs a few more tweaks to be even faster

So the guy would have to buy the "X" motor mount to run on his 417 to be able to fit smaller spurs without milling. Cool.
