When it comes to gearing a motor, say 17.5. Does it matter how you achieve the FDR with a larger spur smaller spur, or larger spur and smaller spur. This should not matter but just wondering as it seems that 17.5 gearing is a huge topic right now.

The Track Milton is referring to is in Winthrop Harbor, Illinois.

It's a nice track about 85' x 30' and gets reset quite often (weekly).

Has anyone ran the k factory rear hubs or front knuckles? Does that fix the slop? Would that be a posible fix for the people who are having the slop issue?

I run the rear hubs on mine and it still has a small amount of movement in it. I think most of this is also due to the way the CVD's go together as they have two pieces on the end. Maybe they should try a more traditional CVD axle. I have tried to mod up using other parts on mine so that I could use other cvd's that do not bind up at full lock. Could not get anything too work as of yet.

It doesnt have anything to do with the axels. It is a problem in the plastic parts. The damn holes are all too big for the bearings. I was told to try green loctite or super glue. But that sounds like a recipe for disaster !

I've been told that the FK05 cvds are a direct fit but haven't tried them myself.

I'll try to take some pictures of my setup tonight. I've got xray cvds and axles on my car plus the Kfactory rear hubs and front C hubs.
It's a nice setup and a simpler design.

Well the bearings are very snug with the aluminum hubs they do not move at all. Get the rear hubs, even though they cost a fortune, you will be very happy with them.
YODOG: I wil look into this!

I do not have the fronts, I do not think I will invest in anymore of the aluminum pieces for the car as they are way to high priced in my opinion.

Yes that is true, Xray FK05 cvds do fit.
