The last thing I was expecting.....from Carrera!!

Postby wixwacing » Sun 17 Jul, 2011 6:29 pm

G'day chaps

Just when I was least expecting it my Carrera McLaren M20 has s**t its pinion!! Most annoying. It is a white 8z pinion for the FF type motor shaft (1.5mm I think) Does anyone know where they are readily available or where I might get a generic one?? A nuisance really. The pinion has started slipping on the shaft. There is no splining on this motor so I suspect it has been asking a lot of it. The shaft has been lightly scored and Superglue has been applied and it is holding for now, but I suspect it is only temporary!

Hi Phil

The scaley MOto GP Pinions fit, they will need to be secured with CA glue or loctite or something of that ilk.

Slot.it make a brass 1.5mm pinion for $6 each - a bit pricey.

Scale auto make a pack of 4 x 1.5mm 10teeth nylon pinions for $9.


the last 2 are available from Armchair.
have not seen the Moto GP ones for a while - i stole mine off my Moto GP bike.

Hi Phil
they are 9 tooth.
I know there was a box of scaley sport blue moto gp pinions that have about 6 or in the box all different sizes.
try here for them
