The Kimbrough's will work perfectly.

I'm running the stock 48p spur that came with the car, but I don't like the amount of flex it has, so I'm going to replace it with a Kimbrough.

I've been running the Kimbrough on my Evo2 FOC with the new solid layshaft without issue.

Great, thanks. I agree on the flex in the stock spur, maybe it doesn't matter, but mine sure does bend really easy.

Honestly, I'm not sure that there's anything "wrong" with it, but it makes me a bit uncomfortable with something in the drivetrain having that much flex. Call me paranoid, but I prefer some semblance of rigidity.

I doubt it makes any difference in the slightest really. All the load is along the perpendicular axis, so it shouldn't make any difference at all if its flexible. That said, all other things being the same I'd like a slightly stiffer peice.

Plus I accidently roughed up 3 or 4 teeth when I was changing things and its noisey as heck, and Kimbrough spurs are much easier to find (around here) and cheaper than X-Ray parts.

Anyone run a Losi Alfa on their Xray carpet/foams? If so what do you think? I haven't run a Losi alfa since last fall and i've forgotten what they're like.

for me losi alfa has the most steering and rear traction when compared to other bodies (stratus,proto alfa,maz6). great for tight technical tracks.

just my.02 worth

1.77 if I am not mistaken. Thats what my old T1r was with the low ratio pullies. Your car should have the same ratio pullies included. The FK is a definate winner. Although I prefer my MI2
