A 25T pinion will mesh but has a little too much play for my taste. A 26T is the smallest I would try to go with a 108T spur. The 26T will mesh perfect.

wow nice! can you guys copy the electric blue anodizing from the surikarn cyclone kits? I've always wanted a NIB surikarn kit, so I figured I would just buy a black kit, buy the aluminum spring pirches, worlds CVD's, then send it out for ANO work.

I hate marking the body holes its always off! Its best to do it when the body is still clear but if you buy pre-painted bodies like me then I sharpie the post and line up the body right before placing it on the posts. Take the body off and ream the holes from the inside.

I am going to try something different this time

I bought some rear posts, and fronts, and I will cut them down short so the body with no holes will be sitting where it would with holes (make sense?)

Should be good
