I noticed yesterday that my pinion from Saga Custom has some wobble to it. At first I though that somehow I bent the 8mm shaft on my Castle motor but its def the pinion. Has anyone else had this problem?

I've seen it before but not a SAGA pinion. He gets them from a supplier in china so anything is possible.

Here are my Arrma pinion wobbles, only the stock 17 Arrma pinion is dead straight.

24T Arrma pinion


22T Arrma pinion


17T stock Arrma pinion, dead straight.

Are the 24t and 22t Arrma or aftermarket?

Might be your motor mount is bent. My did that when it was bent. Those big motors are just roo heavy and need rear support.

That is possible
How would you say your pinion wobble is in comparison to my 2?
Are you using the stock motor? I will have to take a vid to really compare it
Here is a vid of mine.

Stock motor. Yours looks like my 24T one. I've sent my 22T one back to get replaced but no stock until August I think.

My SAGA 34T spool gear (8mm pinion) came with a bit of wobble too. I ended up going down to a 29T anyway so no biggie. For $25 it wasn’t worth the effort to complain.

I installed an Arrma 23t into my K8s last night, it was perfectly straight without any wobbles.
