Yes, the HPI metric 48 pitch gears work perfectly with Tamiya metric 48 pitch spurs like you find on the TT01. Robinson also makes an excellent series of metric 48 pitch pinions. Tower Hobbies sells both lines. Just make sure you get the METRIC 48 pitch ones.

BTW they're also sold as 0.6 module (their true name, although no one uses it).

Metric and imperial 48 pitch are different. Not a lot, but it will wear gear faster if you don't use the same stuff. THe Tamiya pitch is either 0.4 or 0.6 which diesn't correlate exactly to any imperial pitch.
As far as I know, Tamiya are the only ones that actually do this pitch, keep true to their philosophy of "if it ain't broke, better fix it anyway"

They also use 0.5module on a few cars (DF03 and Super Astute), for God knows what reason. I guess they could sell more pinions that way...

Hell, they even started making true 48 pitch gears for their latest off-roaders (501X, 511X, DB01)...

BTW: Tamiya & Kyosho's vintage cars (including re-releases) use 0.8module. Grasshopper, lunchbox, Hotshot, Optima, Ultima, etc...)...

All they need are some 64-pitch gears, and they'll be the only maker of every RC gear size on the planet!
