Default Venom Safari help

Hello everyone,new member and was pointed here by a very friendly gentleman from youtube.

Picked up a used Venom Safari yesterday without electronics. but my question is what kind of pinion's are used on this truck. The stock brass pinion is pretty much useless now as the set screw is stripped out. Any who short of it is what pinion's do you guys recommend ?

Thank you in advance

Here is the replacement pinion, but see if you can download the manual. What motor you running makes a difference in the pinion you choose.

Thank you for the reply.

For now will be using a Sprint 2 Plus ESC and stock motor from a Duratrax VW bug.

Is there other brands of pinions you guys use. The stock one like on the ebay link is made of soft brass and would rather buy a quality piece if possible. The manual does not state what pitch they use

They are kind of their own pitch. 42dp feels wrong, but so does .06 mod.

Yup, I tried 32,48, and metric 48 and they do not seem to fit just right.

Going to order the stock piece from Atomic, any other parts one should keep on hand ? Gave it a good looking over before buying and looks like it was barely run and already has the upgraded axle's.

Few pics

Specific Creeper parts? Axels and CV's. The CV's have teeny tiny pins and the wheel axles bend really easily. RC4WD did do XVD shafts for them.

Also, diffs are not real strong. Better off getting a set of RCBro's solid spool sets.
