Yes, I'm not into 72 pitch. 64 is more forgiving and easier to mesh I agree. Thank you again.

 

Question, Robert: when a motor is at an angle, do you prefer a angled pinion and straight spur or a angled spur and a straight pinion and why?

On my cobalt cars I run the 2 degree koford spurs.As for C can and I-15's it depends but generally angled spur in 72 and straight spur  combo in 64 pitch.But keep in mind the ceramic motors sit at a steeper angle and use the 16* spurs.

I'll run 64P on play cars and anything I where I think there might be a lot of wrecks.They just hold up better in my opinion and its usually easier to swap gears with the angled pinion.

I don't see much, if any solder securing the can end to the motor box. You might lose the motor after the slightest  de-slot so don't dump it !

So a C can fits in there, and at that soft angle?

 

Yes Mike,

 

After doing more research I find that C-Cans do fit this chassis as I initially thought and is also now marketed with that: 

 

Description: CR003 - Laser-cut, fully hardened, .050" spring steel. Approx. 4.61 guide lead. Will accept all JK and Proslot, FK and Euro MK 1 minimotors, along with modern C can motors.

 
So there is absolutely nothing wrong with putting a C can in this particular group F chassis, although I was given grief about it and made out to be stupid or something other.
 
Update: I just found your own post stating the above! Hilarious.

I will accept apologies..... LOL
