    Quick pinion question

    I am going to buy the MMM from tower hobbies and it says it comes with 18 tooth pinion. Is that the one I need for the e-revo on 4 cell?

    It does not tell me any info just 18 tooth, is this pinion come in the box or are they just adding in.

    the stock gearing mounted in the ERBE is 18/65 and that or 21/65 is good on 4 cells

    So it will be fine with the 18 tooth pinion provided with the MMM..

    It does not matter if its in the box or they add it.. as long as you get it :-)

    But check what spur gear size you have in the E revo... I dont know if it is 65

    Why? Are you getting a big discount or have a $50+ coupon?

    Im sorry, I thought I already answered this question for you, twice?

    Think I'm lying, mistaken or just talking non-sense? Never question your God....

    I agree with ksb51rl too, I wouldnt buy from tower unless you have a large discount voucher / code to use, you can get the MMM system for cheaper else where if you bother to do a quick bit of research:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Castle-Mamba-Mon...item56424cd8e1 $235

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Castle-Creations...item2a0e46216a $240

    http://www.rc-monster.com/proddetail...MBO2200&cat=21 $270

    http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...Package-2200kV $270

    Why pay $299.97 from towerhobbies?

    The included pinion will be an aluminium silver or green item ( as you've already been told ), wont last more than a few runs before the teeth are worn away into spikes, so you need to invest in some decent hardend steel ones ( as you've already been told ).

    Please dont make so many duplicate threads asking the same questions over & over again, you wont get better answers...
