Sounds like you need a couple of new pinions (the small white cog). I assume you are referring to the Scalextric Group C cars- Porsche 962 and Jaguar XJR9- and it was a common problem on hornby cars of that era to split their pinions. Gluing is not really a satisfactory fix as the split in the cog affects the gear mesh and will cause lumpy running and ultimately damage to the crown gear.

Either! Make sure you ask for pinions for inline-motored cars, the sidewinder gears are too big! Hornby have updated the pinions with a collar at one end, so they will look a bit different. These still split between the gears though, but don't usually come loose on the shaft.
