very very little as far as pitch goes, they can be run together.

they're not exactly the same but the pitch is very close, mod .8 is like 31.9xx pitch.

I'll add my question to this thread.

I'm looking for a 32P/mod .8 pinion that is hardened steel and fits a 3mm shaft. I haven't been able to find one. I have a hardened steel spur that chews up my Robinson pinions. Can anyone help me out, or am I just doomed to chew up pinions?

I'll be running this in my 4x4 Slash. I have no interest in running an adapter for a 5mm pinion.

Just use the 3mm adaptor. You slid it in the pinion and then onto the motor shaft.
I don't know of anyone making these in a 3mm diameter hole.

I'll probably get rid of the steel spur if I can't find anything. I'm just not really interested in adding something else that may cause an issue. While I've heard good things, I've also heard a decent amount of bad things concerning the adapters.
