6mmS .. Ok, had it running at 8 and it seemed to work better a bit faster. Just finished a spool center for the little slash spool to put it on a dowel above the printer..
Also, the NinjaFlex dampers work fairly well, not as good as a real damper for noise, but a good amount of noise reduction "without" the shaft issues of the other dampers. I only made the damper or Gasket is a better term 1mm thick.. Longer screws are needed to go thicker.
Thanks for the input going to do some more testing tonight.

Is this about as good as it get?

Because the MakerGear extruder drive uses only one gear and a bearing. The if you make it tight enough to pull the filament it crushes and jams. Gravity Feed allow it to work with very little tension between the gear and bearing.
