Default Please help. How do I make a plastic spur work in my Losi 8T?

Can someone tell me what I need to do to make a plastic spur work in a Losi 8T?
I bought the Losi 44T plastic spur and put it in. It appears to make the whole diff assembly wider, so when bolted onto the chassis, the diff assembly binds.
I know the plastic spur is not physically touching anything, I ground down one of the diff mounts that it was hitting. I am able to spin the diff and it does not touch anything but it is very difficult to turn.
Can anyone explain to me how they made theirs work. Or if you used the Kyosho or Team Associated, what you had to do to make those work .
I would really appreciate any help with this, the metal spur is just too loud with my electric conversion.
Thanks.

From what I've seen, most people are using the kyosho 45t and in some cases they have to put some small spacers in between the diff mount and the chassis. Otherwise the teeth hit the slot in the chassis. GL.

Thanks, I am using the Tekno conversion so the slot in the chassis lines up and does not hit the spur.

So does the Kyosho spur bolt up to the Losi diff? Or do I need to get a Kyosho diff if I want to use the Kyosho spur?

The Kyosho spur will bolt up to the Losi diff with no modifications. I had the Kyosho gear in my 8B until it self destructed. I'm not sure if it was from the motor moving a bit and loosening up the gear mesh or just excessive heat/torque after a 15 minute heat. Regardless, I'm sticking to the steel gears from now on...
