If you use the Spec R Spur gear spacer, you can get away with Kimbrough spurs. They are a bit of a tight fit on the e-clip, but they work.

Also, If you can get a hold of RW/Xenon/ Core RC spurs, they will fit.

It usually ends up translating well into modified, but I am not a crazy over powered mod driver. I like just the right amount of power as I feel I can push the car harder and be more consistent with it. Indoors, I hardly ever run anything faster than a 5.5. If I was running more power, I would probably change set-up a bit.
thanks

Thanks, guys. Looks like Serpent is probably the easiest to come by.

AMain has both Yokomo/Panaracer and ARC spurs in 96T, though. Any idea about those?

The Panaracer should work. I just compared it to an XRAY one on the wall.

The material is removed from the top and yes a smaller bearing Is used so that the layshaft is in the same spot. We tested with a normal size bearing and lowering the layshaft, but the rear belt rubs on the motor mount

The panaracer 96t is all that I use for stock. Fits very well.

Hi Michael,

I too just changed and had my first run last night. Very happy with change.

Spool cups:

Smokem Racing - but you must use TRF 44mm DCJ (super hard wearing and no blade required)

Roche - uses kit DCJ, Team Magic DCJ, or Roche DCJ (super hard wearing and no blade required)

HTH.

Leonard.

I'm still running kit outdrives on mine, and run spec-r plastic ones before on my 2013, including mod on asphalt and carpet. Haven't broken one yet, but I've replaced one of the spec-r ones that started binding after it was worn. I don't crash too often, though.

I'm using Spec-R spring steel outdrives. Don't require blades and have held up pretty well in stoic blinky.

Hi again
I changed the kit ones to xray replacement. And it made steering super smooth. The kit ones had sign of wear . I race mod on small carpet. Funny that No-one use hudy steel outdrives.

I've run the Hudy Alloy/Steel out drives as well as the kit plastic ones. I've never had a problem with all three types. You need to replace the plastic ones as they will wear out over time, on the upside the plastics will break if you jam a front wheel protecting the rest of the drive line.
