I've bought a new brushless motor for in my son's Traxxas Slash 2WD.
The old Titan brushed motor died after 2 months and I thought a new brushless motor would be a nice step up!
Problem now is that the new motor has a 5mm shaft (instead of the standard 3.17mm).
What spur and pinion do I need to get this baby running?
(The brushless motor (Hobbywing) comes with a 19pins 5mm pinion)
Please help as I am new to this kind of stuff!
Your options are limited with the 5mm shaft,I did a lot of research,before i bought my first castle system,and because of that i bought the 3mm shaft,My pinions now run from9 to 35,48p.On my 32p gears,i only run a 54 tooth spur,and 13-14-15-17,pinions
But cant help you much with the 5mm shaft,but like i said your limited in your choices.
Maybe if its castle,you could get a rebuild kit with a 3mm shaft,that's just a guess too,but if the can and magnet diameter are the same? A 3mm shaft might work?
You really have to wait for someone with more expertise then me here,but I'll learn something also.

Robinson makes a line of 5mm bore 48P pinions, RRP2017 through RRP2045 (17T-45T) and they are of fantastic quality. If you prefer 32P, Robinson again, RRP8711 through RRP8725 (11T-25T.)
Wait you bought a new esc right?

Why did you go 48 pitch? I would think the bigger the teeth the more durable.
Good choice on kershaw designs, he has a large selection of 5 mm pinions.
