The raceberry are 1mm higher, just enough to use normal spings with the standard schocks, you also save about 20gr of weight. I had the chance to buy a set of prototypes and thy are really good. I love everything raceberry makes, his chassis is dailed on my sons car, more stuff from raceberry is comming, new chassis for using a active rear toe-in is in the pipeline

Most common are probably 92t and 96t 64 pitch spur gears.

Hi, both are included.

The car is not yet available, but should be soon.

Will ARC spurs be a direct fit? A bit tough to get Panaracer spur gears easily here. (except for the 96T from Yokomo distribution) But I'm looking for a 92T spur.

Lastly, any verdict on when the fan mount will be in stock at Gridworks? Lot of the other option parts seem to be out of stock too...

We have the Serpent 92T spur in stock at the moment and just ordered the ARC spur gears. The ARC gears are actually my favorite and are right at the top of the heap IMO.

As far as parts, we are playing the waiting game.

Yes, to ARC, I have an ARC 96T in my D06 USGT car. Great spurs. I don't like white spurs, like the panaracer

Thanks all for confirming. I like the fact the ARC spurs are CNC machined too, have a wider variety of teeth options, and are easier to get. Got a D06 on the way replacing my T4 '13. Been hearing a lot of good things about this car for a while.

I don't think you will be disappointed, I switched from a t4 '13 to a D06 and have been impressed with the car.

I use the ARC/Xray spurs just fine too.

Note the Panaracer spurs are 2.1mm thick, while the Xray/ARC are 2.5 mm thick.
When using the Panaracer spurs, the screws have more length to bit into the pulley.

Leespeed spurs fit too.

I thought the Xray spurs have a deeper offset than ARC spurs? I read some previous posts on this thread and people say they work, but its not as centered.

I have an extra 92T Xray spur but unfortunately don't have the car in hand just yet. Just would like to have everything ready to go and not wait on extra parts.

You can run the xray spurs just fine. I ran them until gridworksracing started carrying the ARC ones.

The Xray spur I used was actually a RW black spur for an Xray. It looks identical to the ARC spur.
