Like $380 - get it while it's hot.

in all honesty there is only 1 country in the world that is still stuck in the imperial system, the USA is a big country and i know many Americans never see anything else, but the rest of the world uses metric, so to say a Japanese company is using metric because of a money grab is going a little far

many companies beside Tamiya make metric spur/pinions

it's exactly the same problem as with metric or imperial tools like hex drivers, the old fashioned backward US system messes many people up.

No they're not. They're close enough to get an OK-ish mesh, but it's not going to be efficient.

Kawada does indeed make SOME metric module pinions. Nowhere near their range of 64 and 48 pitch. RW racing I have not seen any in stock in any of the major retailers and again, their range of 48 and 64 is present everywhere. The others I have never heard of (read I can't see them in any of the major retailers). Good luck trying to find a metric gear in a hurry. When you have equipment (machines) to cut gears you can cut whatever you want, I agree, and I see the point of some of these manufacturers trying to capture as many markets as they can, but to say the metric sizes are used everywhere in pinions/gears is a stretch to say the least. Liek it or not, tradition has its weight and the fact that major manufacturers from Europe like Xray and Schumacher (and perhaps others - the now defunct Corally, Serpent, Team Durango and who knows what else) have not even tried to use metric sizes perhaps has some reason behind it.

with what?

0.6 mod will not mesh with anything other than 0.6 mod, 48 pitch will not fit.

0.4 mod will mesh fine with 64 pitch gear.

i know pitch is more popular due to the weight of the US market, i just said that only the USA is on imperial, and it's a little far fetched to say that a japanese company is on metric as a money grab

i've just set up my Evo 6 for our national 17,5 blinky class with 4.0 FDR - lower FDR not allowed.

48dp 64 Spur Gear and 40 pinion gear - fits perfectly, there would be space for a lower fdr...

0.4 and 64 mesh perfectly fine. Plenty run the kit spur and aftermarket 64pitch pinions.

Ask the factory guys, they race and win world championships that way.

64p is technically 0.3969, close enough that any discrepancy is taken by the fact we mesh the gears loose anyway.

Nope, it's not more popular due to the weight of the US market, that's what I was hinting above. It's more popular due to the tradition instilled by the british back in the industrial revolution. It's hard to beat tradition, we should all know that.

Tamiya is the only major manufacturer who sticks to metric size gears. You might think it's not a money grab, I am just saying if it is, I don't think it is working.
