Hello........I am in the planing phase of making 1/43 sidewinder chassis for some of my slot cars. I would like to have full interiors just like there 1/32 big brothers. The only way of doing this is going to be with sidewinder motors.

Yes Ranch makes a sidewinder kit, but I want to make my own chassis.

I had found a site some time ago, but of course now that I am ready for the gears I can't find the site. Not interested in having the gears casted or machined. Want to find a site that has the gears in stock ready to ship. Would also preferr the gears to be made from aluminum or brass, but would except the gears if made out of nylon or some similar material.

So I need a (spur?) gear 1 centimeter in diameter (up to 12 millimeters) with a center hole diameter of 3 millimeters.

I will continue looking but I would love some help.

Thanks for looking: Joel

I had a go at looking for the very same kind of thing, but didn't have any luck. The R/C gears I found were usually part of a gear train and didn't have a locking screw to fix it to a shaft. Did find a tiny differential which was cool but of no use to slotters.

hi, on usa ebay, a guy called 4554taken sells jk falcon thin set screw side angle winder gears,around £2 a pop and the same for P&P might be i/8 axle but its so close to 3mm you might as well run an 1/8 reamer through your bearings and wheels and use 1/8 silver steel for your axles. by the way i think 3mm is overkill on a 1/43 car, hope info is helpfull. john.

It is a long shot but........in 1/24 racing there are 15mm spur gears available....these are metal and will work as anglewinders.
maybe 5mm too big in diameter ?
