Default Sidewinder 5700 shaft?

What is the size of the shaft on the sidewinder 5700 motor, 5mm? I am looking to order some pinions but I have not recieved the motor yet to check. What are some good pinions to use for that motor in a FT T4? I am looking about 17t or 18t to start I think.

I'll check mine when I get home. I don't even remember my pinion/spur setup. The 5700 in the T4 is amazing, it's stupid fast! The pinion size is standard, whatever almost every other e-motor uses.

It's 1/8" (~3.18mm) - I'm doing same, just in a Slash.
