The Spur gear holder is a cross pattern (4 hole) so I don't think the Xray spurs will fit.

I've been using the Lees Speed Spurs but have also used Panaracer on my car and they both fit perfectly.

Hi Rosko,

Assembly is a happy time with the DETC410.

I do recommend gluing the inserts in to the hubs and scoring the bearing carriers with a knife to make things a little tighter.

Beyond that it's really just a basic assembly process.

Handling is terrific. It's a very smooth feeling car with a lot of natural steering. Small setup changes are easy to notice and everything you need to be competitive comes in the box.

With regard to durability, I have been running my car since early December twice a week without a single spare part!!!! The driveshafts, bearing and spool cups are now worn but they have had a lot of running so that's to be expected.

I have let a few potential TD buyers drive it as well who have put it in the wall several times so it's been crashed and survived!

No TeamThibault, I run Mod. There does look to be plenty of space on the motor mount to get the ratio nice and low. Haven't actually tried it though.
