Talking TAMIYA TB-02R

Being a avid supporter of Tamiya R/C Cars, I recently added a TB-02R into my arsenal. I've been trying to gear down my final gear ratio to about 4.83 : 1
I've been fortunate enough to be able to gear down to about 5.41 : 1, but i haven't found a suitable 28T pinion that would properly mesh w/ the Tamiya gearing pitch for this vehicle. Unless i'm mistaken Tamiya doesn't make a 28T pinion for this application.
Can anyone advise, what to do?
