I want to correct myself. The Xenon Perfect spurs are 3mm at center. It's the Xenon VSS TC spurs that work. I prefer these over the Panaracer spurs.

Leespeed spurs fit the entire line of Yokomo cars as well and all are in stock here in the US. I just received a large order in this week.

All spurs fit and if you change to Team Durango centre pulleys it's even easier (you don't have to use screws, but you have to have cross holes-easy to drill). To compensate for the extra width of some pulleys you can change the shims.

In addition to lightweight titanium turnbuckles and graphite body mount support, such as aluminum universal bone, as a standard feature special servo mount, titanium-coated main shaft gear, such as Super Precision Bearing Set, optional parts with high accuracy.

I don't like the aluminium pulleys (they wear quicker than good quality plastic) so I replaced mine with the plastic center pulley. The problem was that the Yokomo part was crap and running really wobbly, perhaps a defective mold, or just my bad luck, but I thought I would try the Durango pulleys, and it turns out they're a better quality item. Not only that, but they use two prongs at 180 deg to catch the spur between them instead of the screws. That's why you need to make sure your spurs have 4 holes at 90 deg spacing. Easy enough to drill a couple of holes if you have a six hole spur. As far as the spur thickness goes, that's not a problem, you can compensate for it by shimming things to your liking.


Spur boss hole and pitch circle diameter of the screw holes are identical across all respectable brands of spurs, which basically makes your choice endless. No point paying premiums for this or the other.

I was told 48 is better. Depending on the track condition, small pebble/sand particle might get stuck in the 64 spur, ruining it and pinion as well.

Other then the basics (arms/hubs/knuckles) what other spare parts should be kept on hand? Been eying a switch to the BD7 for a while now and might take the plunge.

I'd add in SD-414s and the BD-414b, if you break a knuckle you'll probably lose of those. Other then that, diff blades, maybe hinge pins, and that's about it.

64 pitch has smaller teeth hence a larger range of pinion/spur pairs fit in the available space. If you do your math correctly though, you can find the optimal spur for a given ratio range in either pitch option and have that in the car together with the required pinions on hand (I prefer it this way because I hate changing spurs).

Of course considerations of how feasible it is to run one versus the other depending on track cleanliness have their merit.

The BD7 can accommodate anything from the highest ratios of 21.5 blinky to the low ratios of mod.

Is the alum chassis better than the carbon?
