Is it just me or do the JFT front rims not have enough clearance for the kingpin?

Anyone had issues with mounting spur gears on the spool? Every spur gear I try, to include Roche. needed the holes enlarged in order to insert the screws to hold them in place.

Yes, this is common. I use RW spur gears and have to enlarge every screw hole for the spur I use. I'm not sure which spur they used for design purposes but I'd like to know...

Axon spurs fit correctly.

TC Spurs are the ones that work with the kit spool. Most of the small RW gears are 12th scale spurs that also work with a ball diff!

I just got my P12. Why people bailed to the A12? I noticed the distinct difference of the battery orientation. I would imagine that has something to do with it?

The 4 fastest GT12 cars in our class are P12Evo2 - A12 - P12Evo2 - A12. I believe we're about to start running some 13.5 locally so I'm excited to make that next step into a faster class and see what the car can do.

Still loving my P12 EVO. Will likely go w/the EVO2 when it's time for a new one.
