As you can see, the outer screw holes have a kind of "lip" around them, so as the pinion gets bigger, they are tapered in respect to it. However the lip from what I have here in my hands doesn't seem as thick, so you could technically mount your pinion in such a way its in front of the lip, and you can go REAL big with pinions if needed.
Alright seems a few more vehicles out there. Looking at the gear ratio chart for the dex210F, there is a very wide range you can go. Again though, my question comes back to that "lip" I mentioned.

Anyone else see what I am seeing and have opinions? I think its not a factor, so curious.

heck, with the range, you could only need to buy the cheap 81T spur and still be good for gearing I bet.
