Anyone have mod to do for the spur to move away from the top deck? where it doesnt look like its touching...
I had to slightly sand down the top deck for clearance using a presision spur w/ countersunk screws. that spur is a little thicker than stock at the screw/mounting location...I figured those screws would clear but didn't. Quick sanding and was good to go.

I have a slipper spool that continues to come loose.

I know it's been discussed before, and I looked it up and bought the new T3 nut and screw and tightened it up and superglued it together.

It's still coming loose.

I'd appreciate suggestions on what I'm doing wrong.

Thanks

maybe unscrew all the upperdeck screws and screw them back in x pattern.....its very very important that the screws screw back in freely--if not you may tweak the upperdeck enough to cause it to touch the spur....

do you have both the shims (asc31162, page 11 step 4 on the manual) installed on the center shaft?

also - did you remove any screws from the upperdeck to get more flex?

On my spool i glue the pads to the outdrives to reduce slip. Also double up your nut in the t nut. By that i mean put 2 of the metal nyloc nuts into the t nut, this gives the screw more to hold on to. Also put some threadlock on your diff screw before you thread it through and you shouldnt have any more problems. hope this helps

You may want to look at setups from the '08 ROAR paved nats, the track there was very bumpy.

Final Drive too High. Switch to a lower final drive.

Change your spur to about 72 and run a large pinion in the 40 range. You need to gear lower to around 3.5 depending on motor.
