Default RB5 spur gears

Hello everyone, I was just wondering if there are bigger spur gears available for the RB5 other than the stock spur. I searched kyosho's website but couldn't find any, any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

You can use B4 spur gears, along with slipper plates, and pads if you really want to change. I do believe that Kyosho offers other spurs, at least a 78 for the ZX5.

Default losi

I changed my car over to Losi spur and the carbon sliper pads. They fit great with the kyosho metal plates.

I'm currently running an AE B4/T4 81T spur with the AE slipper pads and the stock Kyosho slipper plates...works great. I also have Losi spurs/slipper to use for other gearing options.

The Kyosho slipper is fine, but at 2X the price for replacement pads compared to using AE or Losi slipper parts, this was mainly a cost-cutting move.

Jeremy, are the carbon slipper pads a Losi part, or aftermarket? Do you have a link to them? TIA.

Like many have mentioned I am running the AE 78 spur with the b4 pads on both my rb5 and zx5. It is just easier to get locally.

I'm running the AE plates and pads with a Kimbrough AE78 spur and losi pinion....SUPER QUIET!

I didn't know the losi would fit....hmm...another tuning option!
