NSR extra light anglewinder gears are used to achieve proper gear mesh when motors are mounted at a slight angle to the rear axle. Unlike sidewinder gears that have straight cut teeth, the teeth on an anglewinder gear have a slight bevel. While an anglewinder setup can be used for short-can (FC-130) motors, it is usually used for long-can (FK-180) motors that can't be used in a sidewinder configuration because of 1:32 chassis width constraints. This anglewinder gear is 16.8mm in diameter and has 33 teeth (33T).
NSR 16.8mm anglewinder gears are designed specifically for NSR cars which use a 2.37mm diameter axle which is slightly smaller than 2.38mm (3/32") axles used by other manufacturers (e.g. Slot.it, Sloting Plus). Selecting a pinion gear to mesh properly with NSR 16.8mm anglewinder gears will depend on the motor and motor mount you plan to use. Use the link below to determine NSR pinion gears designed to work with this anglewinder gear.
- We recommend a NSR solid axle with this gear (see "Related Products" below). This gear will NOT fit 2.38mm axles (e.g. Slot.it, Sloting Plus) unless you plan to use a reamer to enlarge the gear's center bore (we don't recommend this approach - simply use a Slot.it gear designed for the larger axle).
- While not required, we recommend applying a VERY THIN layer of grease on the pinion gear and anglewinder gear teeth. Our Slot Car Grease is an excellent lubricant for this purpose.
- NSR anglewinder gears are secured to the axle using an 4-40 set screw that is included. You will need a 1.3mm (.050") hex driver to install/remove the set screw (see "Related Products" below).
- Use care not to overtighten the set screw as you can strip the threads in the anglewinder gear. Replacement 4-40 set screws are available in the "Related Products" section below - it's a good idea to have some spares on your bench and/or in your pit box.
