Not positive, but I'm pretty sure the those two trucks have a 48 pitch gear. It would probably help your dilemma if you actually get the manual out and actually read it. It probably says for sure.

More than likely they are 48 pitch. Traxxas uses 32 pitch on the revo and the e-maxx and the gear is way different. You're gonna wanna be looking at gears like this [link=http://allaboutfunhobbies.com/store/catalog/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=48p+pinion&x=0&y=0]48 pitch pinion gears[/link]

then you have them meshed wrong or something else is going on. If the spur gear is 48 Pitch then the pinion HAS to be 48 pitch or they won't mesh. You might call Redcat and ask them what the pitch is for sure. I'm pretty positive it's going to be 48 pitch though.
