Does anyone have experience with BOTH, tamiya low friction dampers (53155) and specr r s1 dampers ? Im missing 1 tamiya damper so I'm debating between buying a set of spec r dampers vs buying a pair of tamiya low friction dampers to complete my set. Which dampers are better, will there even be a noticable difference between the two in a 17.5 class ? I was even gonna try a set of GPM dampers I have but there so odd ball from the mounting hole size to there large diameter springs , I think I'm better off leaving them on my drift car.

rtenz I would run all tamiya low friction dampers. The spec-r ones are good, but if you already have the tamiya ones then I would just stick to them. Don't even entertain the thought of the GPM ones. They are not adjustable enough and are too heavy. I wouldn't even use them on my drift car

Lol , yea the gpm's are really stiff and large compared to the low friction dampers, thanks for your response mrjudd

I know it has been asked before I am being a tad lazy at this point. Does anyone have the part number for the tamiya low friction ball cups? What ball studs would work better with these and anyone found titanium turnbuckles to replace the alloys? I have some in my upper fronts but they are a touch too long.

Thanks Steve. I have been having trouble with the tamiya cups popping off of the standard spec-r ballstuds

Also the 3Racing 4.8mm ball studs work well.

What brand spur gear is everyone using on the Spec-R? Ordered the S2 yesterday and looking to put on a 96T 64P spur to run 17.5 blinky. Thanks.

I have a PRS spur in mine. Tried a 3racing (87t) but it had a lip, think it wasn't big enough, that messed with the pulley attaching

as long as its a flat sided on, and has mounting holes at N/S/E/W, you should be fine

I've used both kimbrough and 3racing spurs in my R1 and S1. The 3racing spurs have been more true than the kimbrough ones that I've had, but the kimbrough ones work just fine (I have a 96t kimbrough in my R1 right now)

3RAC-BS4809S 9mm or 3RAC-BS4806S 6mm for steel. These have a 1mm longer neck than Tamiya. They also have aluminum ball studs in different colors and lengths.
I'm using a Panaracer 96T 64p spur and they fit perfect. I can use both POM spacers and still have ~0.1mm side to side clearance.
