Thanks again!
You can change the ball end or shave down the ball cup to make it fit.

Nope, not weird at all. It is common actually to drill two new holes for spurs to fit the 3 hole layshaft if you are not using Kimbroughs.
Robinsons, RWs, Xenons, etc. have the same hole patterns that are different from the Kimbroughs.

My experience with the adjustable center oneway is to replace it with the locked center shaft.

Use a drill or dremel just like Neil suggested for a cleaner job.

Precision RC spurs are very nice. The holes line up on that spur.

Neil, can you elaborate a little. I'm curious as to what you didn't like about it.
I remember a ways back that the HPI Pro 2 offered an ajustable center oneway as an option.
Thanks.

Hey all,

I just got a quick question. After installing the Low Ratio Gears, and using the same Spur, I have to go up on the pinion teeth right?

Thanks,
Kevin

Yea..if you want to smoke your motor.. but really the way to look at it is your ratio is now 1.77(??) so if your running say a 93 spur you would want to run a 23,that would put the final at 7.15..a good starting point for a stock motor,19 wind 21 or 22 and thats with a 93 spur.

Wait a second. That doesn't make sense at all. You are saying a 19 needs to be geared 21 or 22, and a stock needs to be geared around 23. 19's are always geared higher than stock motors!

Anyways, I'm not a newb and I can gear it, but I was just wondering what to expect. So, I am going to have to gear lower?

Oh, and yes, you are correct in that the ratio is 1.77.

Thanks,
Kevin

Kevin, you will have to go down on the pinion size switching to the low ratio pulleys. The pulleys lower the final drive ratio, so to get the same one you had, you'd have to go down on the pinion.
