Do you all use grease in these places, or can I stop using it if I accept some extra wear, and replace more often.

Will I gain less friction in the drive train if I don't use the sticky AW grease?

Was talking to some Xray drivers (T4'15) and they did not use it.
If your using the Roche cups etc, I don't run any grease on them, I just watch for wear on both the cups and the drive shaft. I do use AW grease at the DCJ area. So far, when doing a full rebuild, I only need to replace the drive shaft and the cups.

Thanks.

You can run those, the 417 steel spool cups or a Spec R spool which I normally do.

Here are the Tamiya steel cups.. http://www.tqrcracing.com/shop/produ....asp?p_id=5285

You'll be better off replacing the blades. I use a bag of these every 2 weeks...in your case maybe a bag a month.

I Use the SpecR blades now. Every single time I tap something they are breaking. I am just getting tired of replacing them all the time. Yes i know the solution "stop hitting the boards"

Yeah, I much prefer the Spec R Version 2 spools. No blades to worry about. I used it on both my BD7 and 418 with great success. The Tamiya steel outdrives will work just as good. Just a tad heavier.

84 or 85 with 26 will be near enough to 6 (5.97 and 6.04)

That's about the middle of mesh range.

The AE blades last a little bit longer. Btw, I hit those darn TQ boards way more often than you.
It's better to replace the blades vs the dcjs in my opinion.

I'm switching to 48p gears. What's the middle of the mesh range for 48p at 8.0 FDR?

90 spur

21 = 7.92

You get very little granularity at those ratios though.

For example, 20 = 8.325 and 22 = 7.56

Big jumps. Stick to 64p for mod.
