I saw those, they have them for the T1 Factory.
Are all the bearing sizes the same from the T104 to the 05?
Thats the only thing that stopped me from buying them.

Default Spur Gears

Hi All,

I'm having an issue with the Spur gears. I have used the car at three different venues and each time I have had to replace the spur because it has damage. I previously used a Xray T1 Evo2 and the only time i changed the spur was for rollout purposes.

I think it may be sucking grit up through the hole under the spur so in my last race today I covered it with some tape. Whilst this didn't tell me about the durability of this mod it had no adverse effects.

Is there another brand of spur that is better in 48p. The kimbroughs are to wide, well that look to wide to me.

YES kimbroughs are W I D E but if you align your bulkheads and motormounts properly you might just get away with it with no binds.

my fav spur is made by speedmind. its great for xray!!!

All except the layshaft ones, the kit comes with a 5x9 & a 6x10 (I didn't realize that it was 2 diff sizes on the 04) ...so if you want to do the layshaft you gotta get an extra 5x9 (ordere that last night ...free shipping on all his bearings right now). Oh it also doesn't come with bearings for the steering servo, but I don't think it ever did (on the 04 or others, I don't remember having them for the Losi XXX-S kit I got either).
