no, no card stock. it will work without it. The spool is duraluminum and the outdrive will wear divits where the cvd's contact. After a few runs, you will have play between the outdrive and cvd

Thats weird,That how i run mine in my schumacher.Its duraluminum.It works fine if you run the blades with little wear or play.The Xray stuff must be softer material.I say just buy a spool.

I just got an evo2 and if I run on asphalt with rubber tires on a medium sized track thats semi-technical. Should I be using the solid center or the center oneway? The front diff is solid. Currently, the center one-way is installed but I haven't really driven it so im not sure how it feels. I also have the low ratio pulley set but I believe that one can only be run with the solid center shaft. Is there a big difference with the low ratio pulleys if I'm running stock beginner class? THANKS!

The outdrives on the spool suck. they always spread and give to much play and you end up going through blades like crazy. so to stop that I was using the dif because the out drive is stronger. it worked for a while before I was hearing this noise. I will probably shim the dif. that or wait for TQ hobbies to get in there batches of locked on-ways.

you may try the spring steel outdrive for the diff. this is heavier, but has not given me a problem. Been running one for about 2 years without any slop

spool is also the duraluminum as well. so not any better. I have 2 spools with problem. And 2 new one, that I would get rid, but no-one here even uses the factory spool.

Hi, could someone post a list of the companies that make 48pitch spur gears to fit the xray fk. My lhs only has the stock 93t, i'm looking for bigger spurs, 96t up.

Default another q

I have the option of using the 34t 1way/diff gear to get an idr of 2.125. This will solve my problem gearing low turn modifieds (motor not touching rear belt). will i gain or loose anything changing from 1.77 idr to 2.125? My car is super quick off the mark right now and i was told that it is due to the 1.77idr gears of the fk.

Actually the main benefits are that it'll accelerate faster and will give longer runtime.
