I doubt the pinion has anything to do with it, to get it tight enough to put enough sideways loading on the shaft to weaken/snap it would make for a horrible gear mesh and an amp hungry motor. Most likely it's crappy steal and not quite perfect machining, especially with the cheaper motors that causes the failures
