Unhappy need spacers

Hey all,
I bought a mini-z from "THE" online auction site. The JERK, who I will never buy from again, sold me a complete set and sent only the car and the radio.
Anyway, I am looking for the optional spacers that are needed for changing the pinion gears. All I have is the 1.5 spacer that is factory installed (used with the 6T pinion).
I did get the JERK to buy replacement pinion gears but he could not get the spacers.
I checked with "the Shop" and the site could not locate any either.
You, my great Z-lovers, are my last chance of locating extra or replacement spacers. If not, I guess I have an excuse to buy another mini-z (but could never run the same pinion on both cars).
Can anyone help???

One of the standard Kyosho parts bags have them, sorry, cant remember what the MZ number is but I believe that these come with the motor mount parts at about 6-8 bucks.

Funny I was just making my own spacers -- I noticed the 1.0 spacer is too thick for the 7 tooth pinion... it leaves to big of a gap my pinion was getting all chewed up. -- although that was more due to the stock differential AND the lack of bearings... it slopped around too much to have a nice fit. -- all the more reason to get bearings and a ball diff .

So I pulled the spacer out put it in my spare part box. and cut 2 pieces of my aluminum sheet metal (each .3mm thick) and stuck them under the motor for a .6mm spacer. Works a bit better now.. would rather it be .4 or .5mm going to look at the cereal boxes now... for .4mm to .5mm thick . As for the smaller spacer you can just use a screw threw that top hole in the motor clip. This is what some of the other motor mounts do.

Post MZ-3 or MZ003 (Tower Part No.)

If you can't find them at your local hobby shop (Kyosho Stock Number MZ-3), Tower Hobbies has them for $7.29. Their part number is MZ003. It isn't listed unless you specifically search for the part number.

It comes with a motor case and four spacers.

Just as a side note, when using the spacers the configuration for the pinion gears is as follows.

6t use small top 1.5 spacer
7T and 8T use small top 1.0 and large bottom 1.0 spacer
9T use only large bottom 1.5 spacer

If you don't use both spacers for the 7 and 8 tooth pinions they will tear up regardless of having bearings installed or not.

Thanks for the part number...I will check it out! As far as how to use the spacers, that information has been stated on about a million threads before this one. I do, however, appreciate you making sure I have ALL information need.
Hey, MR mini-z can you look into this part number and price. I may want to order from the site. Just email me.
Thanks again to everyone,
ru_crazy

tr174, good call, I forgot that the spacers came with the replacement plastic mount, I was trying to find them as some kind of plastic parts accessory kit; ru_crazy, I'll see if I can get it.
