Default I need REAL help with my Associated 6.1

I am so dissapointed in the company it is unreal.
First the car comes with a 48p spur gear, so the first thing i have to do is buy a new spur gear ( all I use is 64p) either that or bguy a bunch of 48p pinions.

SO I go to find a spur gear that will fit and get me to a 3.50 fdr and seems like there aren't any spurs out there that will work. Robinson racing's 93t 64p won't work. I call the company, Associated and the tech that answers the phone knows less about the car than I do.
DOES ANY COMPANY MAKE A 93T 64P SPUR THAT WILL FIT THIS CAR?????????????

I am trying not waste any more money by buying gears that don't work. Do you know if they will work in this car?

Both of these gear types fit in the tc6.1, I personally have run both.

Currently I have a 92t spur but this is for 17.5 non-timing. That will change depending on my roll out and motor turn if need be.

I need to get to 3.50 and the 93t is a close as i can get but the gear does not have enough holes in it to mount it.
I have the 93t p#4193

Mike, I have a 96T gear on my TC6 part number ASC4615 and I still have room in my car for a little more gear before the gear gets too close to the chassis (which if your not afraid to do a little bit of dremel work you could fit a little more gear in the car) but I think I should be able to fit a 100T gear in the car if I really needed to ASC4462 for the 100T 64P gear

Thanks but a 100 won't get me to a 3.50fdr needed

Not sure why you're set on the 93t? You can get a 3.5ish FDR with any spur within five teeth over or under that 93T, if not more.

Many brands of spurs will work, some may use two mounting hokes instead of three on the spur gear hub. Not sure why seemingly every one of your posts blames Associated for something or another? Finding a brand of spur that fits takes about thirty seconds and a Google search, it's not the end of the world.

If you haven't ever used it, gearchart.com can print you a handy dandy chart of spur/pinion sizes and FDR's. Just use TC5 when you make the chart, same end result.

64p spur numbers. Never had any use for the 100+ spurs at our huge local track, but the smaller #'d spurs we use all the time.
