    i cant really comment on the spur but, i did buy the whole set RR tranny gear "wide ratio" and its amazing.....its not as loud as i thought as long as you grease it evenly.

    I just ordered that too. Along with a picco .26 red dot, mount,acer ceramic clutch bearings, flm ult hybrid front bulk, flm front dog bone for 3.3 tranny. Might get the gen 3 slipper. IDK, trying to make a good basher.

    That spur is made from hardened steel.... You will need a matched hardened steel CB to go with it or you will find your CB will not last very long...

    Question is,,,, Why do you want a steel spur?

    Because when I mash the throttle on my red dot I don't want to take all the teeth off the plastic one. I'm not going to loosen the slipper. That defeats having all that power. I have a buku clutch that I will tune, and set up the shocks so it won't do a back filp evey time I mash the trigger

    Um, yeah, I read your post, Even if you had a full fledged BB, Picco being a Mid-Block actually, it still isn't needed... If you are stripping spurs, then your mesh is wrong or you have something binding, the crankshaft of the engine could be off kilter compared to the input shaft of the tranny, tranny mount loose, bad bearing on the nitro input shaft of the tranny or bent shaft, a loose motor mount screw or broken motor mount....
    Even with a BB there's no reason for a steel spur... I've seen lots of BB Nitros with plastic spurs...

    But it's your RC, Robinson Racing as a mfr makes good things, quality is good if that's what you want to know...

    I'm just telling you it's not necessary... Save your $$ for other driveline components you might be needing with the added torque you may be needing, like diffs or CVD's, or you may be needing to extend the chassis to help keep the front end down..... Still you can use the plastic spurs though.... IMHO...

    There's always a weak link,,,, thing is, where do you want the weak link to be, in your diffs, in the driveshafts, in the tranny, or in the spur gear?.

    I'd rather strip a spur gear then rip up my tranny.

    Sounds like it's going to be a nice beast.....

    Hey nitronaught, I am wondering what you consider a big block? I know the over all size of the picco is not as big as lets say the ofna force .26 or .28. But the piston is just as big as any other .26. I also just bought the new duratrax 835b which has a .27 on it. over all the engine is huge compaired to the picco, but the piston or bore i guess would be more like it, is only .01" bigger. I don't have much experience with big blocks, all I have really ever owned was small blocks. Thanks

    Just put in an order for the UE racer x knucklehead shock towers and racer x super shock kit. Both on sale. $34 for the shock towers. There's a dude on ebay that wants $65. Glad I checked UE's website first
