I use them all, depends on the Final drive ratio I am shooting for or for FOAM guys, the best rollout possible.

Hope that helps,

For most indoor carpet tracks, a 116 tooth spur is what everyone seems to run. You can get them from PRS, Xray or kimbrough as well as RW too. Just make sure that the holes line up correctly with your mount or you might end up drilling or wasting your money on it. Personally I run a PRS spur on my rides. But I have run Kimbrough in the past with great success. Hope that helps you.

Thanks, I believe I picked up a PRS gear from my LHS but the gear required beveled screws and doesn't quite line up with the the alum hub.

I was looking for a screw set so that I could use the gear and clear the top deck stabilizer. But I saw that Xray had come out with the gears. Will be ordering from Xray gear.

You may of picked up one with countersunk holes in it. It's the newest version they have out. You may want to add to the list a arm or two, some c-hubs and a p-dub bumper if your buying spares. I would highly recommend the p-dub bumper, it will easy the pain so to speak on most breakage.

Last time I checked, PRS gears are a direct fit. Are you sure you installed it right?

Could be wrong, I looked for the package but I must have tossed. The gear I do have does not directly line up and the inner plastic area and is thicker than the XRay stock gear (but is countersunk for the screws).

I am a novice so this could be me for sure.

The bumper, what stock number would that be?

I'm also using the PRS 64P spur gear with no problem. Just make sure you're using countersunk screw. As for bumper I'm running the Parma one... fits great and really takes a hit...

my preference is for the 116t, because with 1.7 internal ratio on the T2 it makes it very easy to approximate rollout ratios when running rubber tires (63mm).

whatever size pinion you are running, that is your rollout in mm (well, very close to it)
