Default ProLine Ambush woes

So I bought a ProLine Ambush for my son right after Christmas and was originally impressed by the little thing but it didnít last long. Itís under a month old, has only been used in the house or in the garage. I think itís probably got about 1.5hrs use on it. He was using it today and it started sounding funky... Long story short the pinion gear is stripped. I canít find any details on it and itís also discontinued. Does anyone know what size gear it is? I would assume it must be a fairly common size. Itís mangled to the point I canít really count the teeth on it. I am going to try emailing ProLine also. If I have to buy a complete motor with gear I will. The little things arenít exactly cheap so I would like to get it going again. I guess heís going to be getting that TRX4 heís been asking for sooner than later.

Thanks in advance for any help. I am just getting back into RC after about 10 years so I am trying to reacquaint myself with everything.

The Proline Ambush pinion and Spur are the same 0.3 mod as all the 1/36, 1/24 Losi micros, ECX Barrage/RGT Adventurer, and a few others. Just make sure to set the mesh properly and everything spins smoothly before reassembling

BTW the pinion is likely 10t or 11t. Could even be 12. I'd just look for a 10t. Use a small dab of CA or super glue to secure the new pinion if the motor shaft isn't splined.

Awesome! Thanks for the quick reply. I am guessing you are right with the 10T. Looks way too small to be much bigger but they can’t be much money so maybe I will just grab a couple of a few different sizes.

Have you found a replacement pinion for this yet. If so which one did you use. I am in the same boat as you right now.
