Also 4 hole spur gears that I can mount without wobble. Thanks for all the help in advance. Also which body for this class? I have Gear diff's and spool as well. Please be in depth your advice. thanks
Tod, the kit setup (the setup outlined in the manual) is actually a great starting point for outdoor asphalt. Start there, with a spool in the front and if you have two gear diffs, build one with 5,000 oil and the other with 10,000 and try them both.

As for spur gears, the mount is what causes the wobble, not the spur itself. I had some luck with putting a set screw in both sides of the spur holder and adjusting the tension on each set screw. It helped some with the wobble.

If they shared 100% parts, wouldn't that make them the same car?
