The stock spur works fine with 64p pinions. It's not "identical" but it is so close it doesn't matter. Even TRF drivers run them (with non tamiya pinions)
Different material.

I won't bore you with the calculation that proves this as I am sure you are knowledgeable enough to do it yourself.
Wow. Close, but no cigar sir (so to speak).

I've mixed and matched metric with 48pitch in the past, it is not good enough.

he is talking about 0.4 mod and 64dp. These are totally interchangeable, I've been doing it for years with no issue. 48dp is totally different

Really? I have both and cannot tell the difference.

If they are different material, do you know what the actually difference is?

Who said anything about 48p? That is miles off.

Xenon


Panaracer


Similar, not same
2 of the best gears on the market
Unbelievable quality in material, design, and execution

64 pitch = .3968

Pretty darn close.

TCS GT1 carpet setup from this past weekend at Middle River Hobbies. 418 definitely works better in slower classes.

Used a Tamiya 96T (.4 Tamiya) spur (from my TRF101) on my TRF418. No issues with a regular 64 pitch pinion. Another local racer did the same and had no issues.

niznai just thinks everyone should not disagree with him.

Or that I should be in agreement with no one.

Depends what you want. 64 pitch is silent like a shy ghost such is the mesh. I take it that is a sign of how efficient it can be. A metric/imperial mesh will never be as silent hence I conclude something is not quite as perfect as it should be. Either way, I don't sell pinions or gears.

A couple of questions to the setup up sheet:

What does the "Full" means on the tires?

You don't show you have added extra weight, but the setup sheet shows a total weight of 1442g. Mine with a 7000mah GensAce, Mazdaspeed6 body weighs 1330g. Need to add 20g ow weight to reach the 1350g minimum weight requirement. Everything else is box stock, no titanium screws etc. Is it your lipo that makes all that weight?

Do you run with or without the single screw in the top deck near the motor?

"Full" is the amount of traction compound used. Covered the full surface of the tire.

I didn't add any weight. For TCS racing, you have to use Tamiya bodies and the Ferrari 458 is super heavy. Sure, I could have used one of their lightweight bodies, but I didn't have a chance to buy/paint one. Also the new ORCA 7500 pack is kinda heavy too. When I run regular club races, I add weight mostly in the center and/or electronics side.

Yes, top deck center screw was used.

The manual instructs to add grease on e.g. the shaft blades.

I have replaced the front shaft spool cups with a type so I don't need blades in the front.

I add a little AW grease there also, because it's metal against metal.

Do you all use grease in these places, or can I stop using it if I accept some extra wear, and replace more often.

Will I gain less friction in the drive train if I don't use the sticky AW grease?

Was talking to some Xray drivers (T4'15) and they did not use it.

Does anyone know the part number for the front cups so i can stop running blades? Also does it take any modding or just fits perfect?

Thanks.
