I built a kit the other day that had already been opened and it had an 80 tooth in it. But the CRC spurs are labeled. It shouldn't be hard to find.

Thanks Eric,
My eyes are crap and i was hoping to avoid counting that many 64 pitch teeth. Thought, with enough owners somebody might just shout it out quick. Kind of disappointing the instructions dont do a bit better job at identifying stuff in the new kit, had to ask the weight of the shock oil and damper lube as well.
Thanks Again for responding!!
Kevin

Measure the spur with calipers and write it down. That is the easiest way to determine your spur size without having to take the diff apart.

I fully understand, I cant see that well close up anymore myself, and sometimes by the way I drive I maybe cant see distance as well

My gen X12i came with a 72 tooth spur gear. This is the spur gear with the smaller 3/32" diff balls.

OK what type of shimming do I need on the rear axle to run Jaco wheels?

On the front is the Jaco and CRC wheel offset the same?

My local track has a great deal on Jaco tires.

To take anything off that has been Shoe Goo'd to the chassis you need to be able to slice the glue with a sharp blade and then it will pry right off. So make sure when using Shoe Goo not to push the component down too far. You need to leave enough gap to wiggle an Xacto blade into.
To remove items that have been glued with shoo goo I use a heat gun to heat the bottom of the chassis and then the item can be removed just by twisting it most of the time

Easy way to figure out your spur size. Measure it (diameter) with calipers in inches. Multiply it by pitch and subtract 2. If you come up with like 71.7 its a 72. Just round it to get the tooth size.

Diamter x pitch - 2 = Size.

Measure with a calipers and shim to the width you want. I believe the max rear width is 172 mm

Make sure you shim each side from the centre point though, or the axle could be 'off'.

In stock trim I find it's also a good tuning tool. For more rotation make it narrower.

Amazing how quickly this thread has quieted down -- I guess the Xti thread has taken over all of the CRC 1/12 spotlight. A lot of us still have this car (Xi), right?

Think the Xti is that much better??? I know it has the "cool factor" of the adjustable rear pod...
