I run Jaco blues most of the time so I can fine tune my series (WCICS) spec tire setup.
We're saucing with SXT, I sauce full rear and half front usually or, if there's time I let the rears soak a then sauce and wipe full fronts right before the heat (and use less dual rate).
With the narrow track width of the R10 I'm careful with front sauce, the car is very responsive and can become quite difficult to drive if the front tires are too sticky. JMO

I would suggest a 92 spur and 51 pinion. Final ratio of 3.6-4.0 is recommended. I use 3.6 at my local asphalt track with 120' straight

If its hard to find a 92, then go with a 96 spur and 53 pinion

Do most spurs fit? Any that you know don't? I'm buying this car now so trying to get what I need in one cart. Do the sizes you mentioned matter if it's 64 or 48p?

Most spurs will fit. The spurs and pinions I provided are 64 pitch

You need a spur for a three-hole mounting. Lots of spurs on the market won't fit. The kit spur appears to be an RW Racing spur for an XRAY, so I'm using them. 67 spur (48dp) is in my car usually and lets me gear from about 4.3:1 to 3.4:1.

I'm gearing 17.5 Blinky at anything from 4.5:1 on a very small indoor track to 3.2:1 on a very large outdoor track. This is with a Vampire motor on maximum timing. Gearing depends on track, motor and motor timing, and the best gearing is the one that gives you the best race time.

Does this kit come with a 48p or 64p spur? I noticed an earlier post saying it comes with 48p and just want to verify...

48 as standard. The standard spur is only good for modified racing so most of us will be putting it straight in the parts box anyway.

The ARC spurs are fantastic... I ran a 100 spur to 47 pinion 64pitch. They are machined and super true.

Just got mine put together. What a great kit. Fitment was very good overall (front arm spacers needed a little massaging) and there is no slop. So unlike my TC6. My only gripe really is the silver button head screws have a very shallow hex. I didn't feel like I was getting a good bite with the hex driver and really had to take it easy. I'll probably end up changing those out just to prevent rounding one out.

The "bag of many things" as I have come to call it was a nice touch. My kit had a clip missing from the shock bag. However, I found a nice little bag attached to the shock oil bag that had one of each of the common fasteners and what not in it. Back in business.

I cannot wait to get this thing on the track.
