hello Jeff

you can get the spur gear adapter from Rcmart for $1.90 bargain

this will let you use a touring car spur also allowing more diff balls and more gearing option

Actually, I forgot it's in my kit bag. Just havent put it to use yet since I usually just run it in a big outdoors basketball court.

Don't waste time getting that body Matt, no matter what paint scheme you go with it's awesome looking. I can't stop going to the shelf to look at mine.

Where did you get your spurs from? ...... Did you get the "metric" (?) 0.4 pitch or different.
What pinions

you can replace the 'tamiya pitch' spur with a standard pitch spur - at which time, you'll need standard pinions

however, in order to use a standard pitch spur (by standard i mean, the run of the mill spurs you'd use in a TC or 12th scale), you need to purchase a diff gear spacer - http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXZEU7&P=Z - because the tamiya spurs use a bearing and the standard spurs do not

my F104 never used the tamiya gears, i went straight ahead of got the spacer so i could use any spur gear i had in my collections
