  • Pioneer Legends gear question.

    It appears that the axle gear on one of my Legends cars has wore down to the point of not working any more, is this from too much play in the axle?

    Is the gear slipping on the axle?

      Nope, axle gear is wore down and to the point of gears sliding by each other.

        That would be called the spur gear. If I recall correctly the axle is splined where the spur gear is located. If the rear axle assembly has a lot of side play the spur gear could get pushed over and no longer be on the splined part of the axle causing it to slip. There should be some spacers installed with the rear axle assembly to limit the side play. If the spur gear has moved off of the splines you could just push it back, but I would put a small amount of Superglue on the splines first. Be sure to keep the Superglue out of the bearing!

          Yes, You may have to much play in the axle and it is hitting the inside end of the pinion. Make sure you have the right spacers on the axle. PM me

            I'm not explaining myself very well, too much play in the gears due to spur gear wore down, not meshing any more, spur gear is visibly word down, no slippage any wear.

              Is this happening on an RTR Legend, or a paint it yourself kit car you assembled?

              Also, Pioneer sells a spare parts Legends gear pack for about $4. I didn't see a full replacement rear axle on INASLOT's website, but you could contact them or PM Jules..

              Sounds like time for a replacement spur gear.

                    I wouldn't go with a 19mm gear. I use a 18mm 33T spur gear and 6.5 12T pinion. It gives you more ground clearance.

                      That is what I have used to rebuild mine. Except I went with 36. I do swap out the bushings to SCC. Basically a full rebuild.

                        That looks good Harry. What's that Black motor? This better not be a Proxy car.
