I only tried one, and it came out pretty close, but still wobbled a little bit. It was good enough for one race weekend until I was able to buy my set of RW spurs. I wouldn't bother really... id fork out the dough for an RW, or a schumacher, and be done.

Get the RW spurs on eBay ! I put the 81 Spur & matched it with a 30 pinion and runs good...

Losi springs work for me, at least on the rear shocks.

I've used a sharp losi body reamer and went a little on each side. Don't try to do a side all at once, do a little at a time and switch back and fourth. My spur fits perfect with no wobble. Take your time and you'll be fine.

Im currently running the Schumacher machined spur but after every run I crack open the gear cover and there is fine black dust on the motor plate. Is this typical of machined delrin spurs or just the Schumacher?

Finally, my buggy should be in next week. everyone on here has been great with their tips. Hopefully the build should go well.

Still not clear as to where to get the Durango springs that are listed on that spreadsheet. Are they the same as what are on the 410?

Any reason you guys are reaming out spurs to fit instead of the RW ones that are deigned for the 210? Just wondering if theres something I should know about the RW's.

I would download the online manual, if you haven't already, there are are a few discrepancies in the kit book, The springs are the same as the 410, as long as you make sure to get the big bores, part numbers should match up..

No, other than maybe using stuff we already have, the Rw's were not available right away..
