hi monkee, i think you can only use 19, 21, and 23T pinions. try the 19T.

hi monkee, I double checked my TL01, the motor mounts are for 19, 21, 23 pinion (markings are on the motor mount). Tamiya usually sells pinions in pairs of 18/19, 20/21, 22/23.

and on top of that, DONT use the stock aluminium pinions, use rw racing or robinson racing steel ones, then your spur wont wear out!

So true!

stay way from shitty alu pinions.

Get a steel pinion or a hard coated.
