Default Kimbough gears for F1's

I need some help with gearing on my Tamiya F103. I have searched but can't seem to find my answer. I have a Novak GTB2 ESC and Novak SS 17.5 I plan to run on 2S. What Kimbough Gears will fit on the F103. Should I use 48 pitch or 64 and which Spur and Pinion should I use for best ratio for parkinglot running?

If you get the Tamiya spur gear adapter you can run any standard spur gear.

Has anyone noticed a difference with taking out the Tamiya spur with bearing and swapping it out for another spur and the spacer? I sure like the idea of having the bearing in/on the spur.

Yes. The more balls you have the better I liked the CRC spurs with 16 balls. Mucho smooth diff if you know how to build one.

Where might I find the adapter and will this allow me to use kimbough gears?
