where can i find 48 pitch spur gears that are close to 105 teeth? the only ones i can find are only about 85 teeth. do companies not make any 48 pitch high-teeth spur gears?

does it matter if i installed the blue lightweight driveshafts in the front instead of the rear? i put the black ones in the rear and the blue ones in the front just because i think they make more sense to be up front. they look to be the same size, so i don't see any problem with them being flip-flopped. does anyone disagree?

I would recommend moving the LWT swing shaft to the rear because the front the vehicle takes more abuse and the LWT shafts are extremely soft & it does not take to bend them.

A couple of questions:

1 - does it help to put any kind of lubrication between the spur and pinion? I think I got a piece of gravel in there at some point because my steel pinion has some little dings in it. Kind of weird, because the spur looks fine. My spur/pinion make a lot of noise, although it seemed noisy before the gravel damage.

2 - Ive seen people soak belts in wd40 overnight to soften them, has anyone done that to their belts? I have the blue tamiya ones.

Any lubricant between the spur & pinion will cause drag and attract more dirt.
It is normal to get small pieces of derby in the gear mesh. It should be part of your inspection process after every run to check and remove any visible debry in the mesh.
As for the noise, you should replace your pinion and spur, if your hearing any noise, that means you have drag and your going slower then you could be.
As for the soaking of belts, they are not designed to be prepared in that manner, you will be prematurely shortening the life span of the belt. I suggest making one run and readjusting your belt tension, by then your should be broken in.

the directions in the 05R kit say explicitly not to soak or spray the belts with any kind of lubricant/softener. maybe you can do it with the standard belts, but i wouldnt do it with the aramid belts.

As far as I know, you can't, they'd be WAY too big to fit in there. That's why companies came up with 64 pitch in the first place, so we can use spurs & pinions with more teeth & can make finer gearing adjustments(not to mention the SLIGHT improvement in efficiency). If you really need a spur bigger than 85 teeth, then I'd just go to a 64 pitch one & just be careful with getting your gear mesh right(as long as you do that, they will last just fine, unless they get fouled by track debris).....

I'm using Kawada 48P 78T spurs which is quite close.

Can you replace the 2mm lock nuts in the diff with 4-40 locknuts from losi etc..?

I can only seem to find replacement 2mm tamiya nuts that come with the diff bolt screws, not by themselves.

so if i use a 48 pitch spur gear, it doesn't have to have 105 teeth to be equivalent to a 64 pitch 105 tooth spur gear? do the gears just have to be the same diameter to be equivalent?

i'd just like to stick with 48 pitch because the pinions are cheaper and i can get them in 5 gear packs from Robinson.
