Indeed, they told me they could produce these screws if they got an order of 5000 No thanks!

By the way Square produce very good quality screws. But they are a little expensive...

What brand spur are you using?
Kimbrough spurs fit really nicely with this car, and I'm running a Robinson Racing pinion, in 64 pitch. That seems to be a pretty standard setup. You should be able to find what you need here: http://www.tqrcracing.com/shop/produ...07&s_maker_id=

Kimbroughs are fatter in the middle area where the center pulley attaches.

The car goes together better with "skinnier" spur gears. I've found that with skinny spurs and the white bushings all is well with no binding with the upper deck.

I also bought (and didn't use) an Associated spur. Again too thick. I found at my LHS an HPI spur (it was white) that works perfectly. Except for some darn reason it was $8 instead of $4. Oh well, it works.

The Kimbroughs are fatter, yes, but that's why they fit so well if you use the flanged bearings described in this thread. That is what the original owner of my R1 did. I went through that area and the fit is superb, no need to mess with the white bushings.

White bushings are a lot cheaper than the flanged bearings...

i would recommend everyone to buy the white bushings with the car just to have the option

I'm gonna make heavy battery holders. I have it set up and hope to run a pair off tomorrow. I'm shooting for 20-25 grams each.

I'll have pics tomorrow I hope.

if this works I may make a few extra sets.....

Default To strap or to tape...

Some of us like to strap their battery, some of us taped their battery. Well in my case, Im taping it. Reason why is that I dont want to buy another set of race battery. I still have 3 race worthy nano tech stick pack that I used in my Tamiya F104. My F104 now is using a shorty lipos.

Since my stick packs wires are directly on top, strapping them on my S1 will not secure them 100%. So I cut a 3/4 inch slot on my chassis for the tape.Add to that the big flat head screw to stop the battery from hitting the belt.

you mean the big flat head screw? I have it in my toolbox a long time ago, dont remember what kit it came from, but definitely a servo stay screw.

I have run a similar battery before that is round on the bottom with the dimples, mine flew out of the car during a crash. Lesson learned to use a square edge pack if you are to use the strap. I understand you want to continue to use your current pack, but hopefully the flex characteristics of the chassis were not adversely effected. Good idea though.
