You are correct and have just elaborated on my original statement. However, in order to clarify for other members, pitch still does not relate simply to the quantity of teeth found on a particular gear. For example, 1.0 pitch (for example) could be specified for a gear with 20 teeth or one with 40 teeth. The only change would be diameter. The 5996 primary gear is larger in diameter (more teeth). This is why the transmission case is slightly different. It features 33 teeth, with 23 teeth on the output shaft primary gear. This is compared to Revo/Maxx FOC gearing of 28/28. The internal "overdrive" allows you to use standard Revo clutchbells and spur gears while keeping a similar overall drive ratio.Originally Posted by george16
As you all can see, while the Slayer features a Revo style transmission and shares many of the same parts, they are clearly not all the same. Are Revo tranny parts like a center diff compatible? Of course, but it will skew the drive ratio.
