Sabin you can run many different spurs. i believe Kimbrough and CRC spurs fit. I switchedmy car to 64 pitch as well.

So does anyone know where I can pick up a few extra spurs? Everywhere I looked it told me they were out of stock.

Failing that, is there any compatible spurs out there?

Are you running the Lm-1 leman body?

If you are running outdoor, stick with 48P. One tiny pebble and 64P will strip.

It was outdoor, on a parking lot, using the stock spur. Seemed to be okay when I had the ESC dialed to 50% power, but as soon as I dialed it up to 100% to run on an airport runway, that's when it let go.

Where can I get 48p spur gears for the LM-1. Indoor On-Road racing is vanishing in my neck of the woods so all I have left is asphalt. I live close to many parking lots. The last time I raced my other on-road a pebble came in and dislodged my drive belt and roughed up the splines. This was a very good swept outdoor road course but I went off into the grass a couple of times and must have picked up a pebble. So I think I would like to try 48p if that's all I do is run on a parking lot by myself.

Saw what seemed to be a Speed Passion LM-A body painted in a Ferrari livery on Facebook today. Now I can't find it. Did anyone else see it?
