Thanks for the advice.
RW Racing, JWerks, and PRS (the newer version w/ countersunk holes) all fit the T2 with no problems. With PRS you need three short countersunk screws. I'd suggest sticking with either a 114t or 116t. AFAIK a 112t works also.

I run a 120 robinson white spur, the black ones don't fit, there too wide, itís the biggest you can get on there, usually the bigger the spur is the faster you accelerate, pinions I most commonly use are between 30-36 robinson titanium. Hope that helps.

Anyone know what size bearings come in the aluminum steering blocks and rear uprights?

Thanks.

If I remember corectly it's a 5x9x3 it's smaller than the stock ones. If you get the Tamale stuff it uses the stock size bearing.

I don't think 120 will work. I have a PRS 118 (the hobby shop was out of 116) and it comes within a c-hair of the bottom of the chassis.

I found it on the x ray site. Pays to look first. its 5x9x3

I built the kit with the aluminum blocks, I assure you they are not the stock size.

im using 120 now, im pretty sure its robinson white supper lite spur, but i have to check when i get home what make it is, but i am using 120 and 118 spurs, the 120 just sits flush with the bottom of the chasis.

Depending on the brand, the 120t spur may stick out the bottom up to about 0.2mm.

I use a 120t spur in order to move the motor as far forward as possible for more steering. Usually, the lower the turn of the motor, the more it weighs and the difference in static weight distribution is more noticeable.

In order to run anything from an 8x1 on rubber/asphalt to a stock 27t on foams, I keep a range of 64p pinions from 22t to 35t, as well as a 118t and 116t spur if needed.

Being able to make a quick 2t spur change in less than 5 minutes has made a big difference when racing competitively with foam tires in the stock class.

IMO I like the116 from PRS. I wouldnt order it from RCSCREWS. I ordered it from them and they sent me one that wasnt countersunked and they wouldnt take it back. So I would try another place like EA. Hope this helps
