Questions?? pinions

Does anyone know where I could get a pinion gear with pitch to suit an 18th scale and a hole to suit a 540 shaft? cheers

...my 1/18th scales used the same pitch that we use on the 1/10th cars...

I had a bushing build to actually be able to use my 1/10th gears on my 1/18ths small shaft too. (It was basically a piece of tube, with a cutout in it for the set screw to lock against the shaft, not the bushing.

Things are headed towards a return of the SWT Series, but for
2017 the focus will be on the Encino Velodrome (and dirt oval racing)

Like I said, it depends on which one you have. Xray uses 48p, associated/losi/soprtwerks/some others use .5mod (very close to 48p, close enough to be somewhat interchangeable), and duratrax uses .6mod. We used to use a ghetto rig when we couldnt get xray micro pinions, wed use regular ones with a piece of antenna tube in them. worked great lol.
