    Posted: 22 May 2006 at 9:23pm

Hi all,

I have a question....maybe a little strange?  Am I right in thinking that the standard pitch of the teeth on gears is D.P 48?  If so, are gears with different tooth pitches compatable?  For example, pinion gear of D.P. 48 and spur gear of D.P. 32?  Or would they just mash together? 

The reason I ask is, I'm doing an electric to nitro conversion on one of my cars and want to know if I can use the existing spur gear with my 0.15 engine.

 

Thanks..........

No, different pitch gears are not compatible, as the teeth are spaced differently around the circumference of the gear.
