need replacement pinion gear...where to find?


I had purchased the Great Planes Gearbox T400 3:1 Ratio BB from Tower and have lost the pinion gear (11 tooth brass in photo)

and noticed that their web site says it is not available separately. I need to find a new one, but am unsure as to where to look. Any help that could be offered would be great. Thanks in advance for any info.

Regards,

RG

Check your local hobby shop.

My LHS, under the R/C car section, has a large selection of pinions with 5 to 18 teeth.

Good luck,

Not really sure about the one available from hobby people...as for a shop I don't really have one around that is easily accessible. I live in Boston Proper and only have access to a car every now and then. I think there might be one in Burlington, MA but I'm not certain. Thanks for the input so far....more would always be welcome.

For your information, the one shown on the Hobby People sight is the same pinion. They are both the same gear box. It's the same gear box as used on the Kyosho Ferias, Wattage Impress, etc.
