I'm using a Kawada pinion and didn't notice any fitment issues, but I wasn't looking super closely. I put it on backwards so the gear is towards the motor, and the screw is toward the battery.

Is it really the pinion that's hitting the belt, or just the set screw? I've got some Robinson pinions but haven't tried them in the TC6, so I don't know exactly what the problem people are facing is.

Would it be possible to use one 1* insert and one 0* insert on the rear upright to achieve 0.5* of toe? That might also have the side effect of making the hub grip the hinge pin a bit better and reduce slop.

On most of my black pinions (variety of brands) the set screw clips the teeth of the belt. There are a few where the body itself of the pinion rubs. Even if the friction is miniscule, it's still friction. Possible heat from the rubbing could damage the belt, also.

Are people using AE pinions? If anything else, they should work.

Can you grind down the set screw, or buy a shorter one?

Sure, but even screws that are "short" tend to stick out at least a little due to the size of the rotor.

I wasn't going to bother finding the few pinions that did magically fit then either buy more or change gearing. Dremeling the rotor was a simple cure-all.....

We just got a quick and prompt reply back from Robinson Racing. It looks like their "Alum Pro" pinions could work well in a TC6. Only 0.340 thick which is thinner than the ones we have now.

We will order a bunch up and let you know how it works.

I have a similar concern on pinions on my TC6. So far I have tried Xenon, Kawada, and Zeppin pinions mounted with the gear facing the motor and the pinion body rubs on the belt just a small bit. But as one said, its still friction, and I can notice sone uneveness on the teeth of the belt. The Zeppin pinions appear to have the thinnest body with the grub screw flushed in the body when fully tightened. This should minimize belt rubbing for the meantime until I can find the ideal pinion.

We don't suggest running the gear towards the motor body. Reason is that during running the belt tension changes and will rub against the other end of the pinion even with the set screw flush. If you prefer it this way, a belt tensioner should be used.

The best way to deal with the various pinions on the market, is to extend the flat on the motor shaft like many racers have done with a dremel tool. Also the best way to grind the flat is to take out the rotor first.

3Racing pinions have not given me any trouble on the car. I have not tried the revtech, but have run the D3. I don't know if it's the same, but I know the 3R pinions work great.

Ice fish, probably the wrong thread mate for things like this I would usually haul out the sxx threads.

Any how, to fix your problem.
Plug in the USB
Load up the updater
Press connect
Plug in the speedie
Press ok
It will connect then.
