He means spur gears....

Rotate the carb clockwise a bit, once you will hook up the gas servo, you will see why....

To me it also seems like the rear belt is a bit too far to the right.
Maybe you can move the pulley on the 2 speed shaft a bit, which will move the belt more to the middle of the rear diff.

Spur Gears are the big plastic ones on the right side (looking form the back)

I would post pics of my car but I'm posting from my phone and its not allowing me to post my pics. One more the the blue wheel nuts u are using if they are not serrated which means have those little teeth like things on the back of them which I'm sure they don't then put the stock ones back on as those blue ones come off easily.

i cant seem to get 1 or even 2 qualies out of the 16/61st gear combo with the LC spurs and pinions, to me that is unreliable, and the use of the WC spurs and pinions im replacing maybe every 3 meets due to wear. so to me this is more reliable and i feel a must have item.

That's a hell of a lot of wear could it be your mesh.

with the LC i set the mesh the same way as the WC. i tried the LC a few times, but didnt manage to finish a race. the gearing stock is 17t pinion which isnt any good for the track. and about the wear, its more the surface condition that adds to the wear. the track gets blown off, but still rather windy and dusty at times, and little things fall from the trees and can do a belt in no time as well as flying up into the pinions and spurs. i did have some wear in the thrust retainer, so i replaced and new bearings, and the LC still did spurs. so WC is much better for me. thats why i was dissapointed it never came std on the 09.

I read an older post with this same question. The bearings both DJ and Kamikaze said to use was the part #1311. The size is 5x8x2. When Kamikaze measured it actually is closer to 2.3mm.
