Any auto parts store and many hardware stores should have anti-seize compound. It is common on autos for exhaust manifold bolts, o2 sensors, etc. to make them easier to get out. Just ask, they will hook you up.

On a side note, I just put the pinions on finger snug (not tight) and put some wheel bearing grease on the threads (same stuff I use on thrust bearings). Probably not as good as anti-seize but has worked fine for me.

interesting, since the late '90's i have always put the pinions on tight with threadlock. my first experience with 1/8 scale (a NEO) had pinions coming loose.

at the time the oneway bearings were a reliability issue, and there was a fair amount of drag from the standard bearing oil or grease used on the oneway bearings which i presume was the culprit.

this was all before using mineral oil was popularized, and serpent introduced a specific 'oneway lube'. maybe i need to 'lighten' up.
