Help with pinion gears

Hi 'all,

I noticed tonight after my 3rd session with my car that the pinion gear is looking a bit worked over. I have the X-Speed Motor and the GPM MR-02 Differential. I think I need to stock up on parts and the pinion is next (just got extra H Plates I guess my question is-do u think the stock pinion is fine with a X-Speed? and where can I buy the pinions (The store here seems to be out as I would prefer to buy here). Thanks for helping to keep me on the road.

-Unrelated question: Is there a pdf of the manual online somewhere as I purchased my car used and it would be nice to not have to ask questions that are included in the manual

Thanks again!
DM.

Dont' worry...

I have been using only one pignion since febuary and I race about twice a week, 5 hours non-stop. I drop about 7 packs of battries each time, and they are 950 mAh from GP.

It looks like it is used, but it was like that when I bought it. And my motor is kinda torque. I use a 9t and it still spinout if I just push the trottle too quick. I never run above 75%....

Anyways, You can buy a aloy one, but then youll have to change your diff more often.
