It's not square.It's the size of a standup brush which isnt square.
Mike Reedy 1st started doing it and passed it on to me for the MVP.I dont know if Mike or Jim did it 1st.
I have tried it on the core's but the core's have a different powerband than the MVP's do.I seem to like the full face 767 brush for offroad and have cut the 766's like that for onroad.They seem slow in the MVP and Core for about the 1st 4-5 runs and then just keep getting faster and faster.
The Trick I recall in Jim's book is with 766's.

Default spur

you sure you don't have the red and green confused tex, for some reason I thought it's an 88 but I could be wrong, but you're on target with the pinion size for either spurs. Good luck racing lineburner. And losi I think is better, ask Travis Amezcua about that.

Nope green is 88 which is factory on the Regular XXXT.
Red is 86 which is factory on the XXXTMFE
etzkev-Try 88/17-18 on small to medium sized tracks.
If it's big and fast flowing try 18-19.
Goodluck and have fun.

Yeah. Thanks. I'll get out there, and see what works best during practice. Like I said, I'm not an "expert", but I do know a good amount, and gearing is one thing I know.

anybody else have the same problem when running the 88 spur, that it rubs on the gear cover, especially the RPM gear cover?

Well, after using it for a brief amount of time yesterday (this is because I ended up racing my B4 because I am more comfortable with it and have it all set up), the Core ran Ok, but not as quick as most of the competition. But, once I have some time to go to PRACTICE, I'll tune the motor, and work on my setup for the track, as I have never run the truck before (yes, its basically brand new).

He's a general rule I tell all the new guys at the track....

If you want a good motor that is easy to gear out out of the box, get a P2k or P2k2.
You can never replace torque, the extra torque of these motors make up for a lot, as has often do you ever see full TH?

The Core can be a VERY fast motor, WHEN GEARED PROPERLY...

If you find the right gear, they are super fast. Find the wrong gear and they get HOT fast.

Where as the P2K2 can be off a gear and still be close.

In general, I steer all new guys to a motor with torque.

It will last longer before rebuilds as it won't get as hot.

my 2 cents....

etzkev-What did you run the core in and how did you end up gearing it?

Default motors

I have recently ran dyno tests on my motors, new and after 3 runs, and the p2k lose a ton of power and rpm's after the first initial runs. I like the hellfire myself, and it likes to be run hot, so a tooth or 2 over won't hurt it-Dave
