You can grind out the top plate or you can countersink the spur and use flathead screws. I just spot milled the spur gear a little to give more clearance.

Default prs spurs

Mine fit fine. It is close but does not rub at all.
However I had to replace the 5mm screws with 6mm because the prs are wider in the center than the kit supplied ones.There was just not enough screw in the aluminum of the layshaft to suit me.

Now if I could get the servo screw to slide by the top deck w/o shaving the top deck1/2mm. Already shimmed the mount out 3mm with a JR servo and it touches just a hair. Darn -- it is just going to have to stick out over the chassis another mm.

Other than that and the arms needing some tlc to move freely it was as good or better than the 05 to build.

My .03

rc knight,
dremel has a bit the same size as a cell.it's only 1/10 of the length but you run it back and forth and you get a very good seat for your cells. or you can do like hugodvb glue some sandpaper to a cell and hope it doesn't tear off in the process, but if it works it should come out perfect

Schumacher has shown too much love for me to walk away. Carpet has been a learning curve but on asphalt it's an even playing field.

I think you'll still need to drill out the right screw holes in order to fit the RW gears in. JWerks is really the way to go so far, unless PRS comes out with one with a thinner thickness. Both companies use basically the same materials anyway...it's just which fits the best.
