FG ones will fit, so no need to look any further. Should be easy to find.

FG 19 t steel pinion: http://www.davesmotors.com/Search-Pa...l%2019%20Teeth
FG 48 t steel spur with adaptor: http://www.davesmotors.com/fg-06493-...h-adaptor.html

But i recommend you to run the spur in plastic to have a weak link in the chain, if something jams between two steel gears you will most likely have a costly and more time consuming repair ahead than just to change the plastic gear. Hope this was helpful.

When looking at the description here: http://rc-car-online.de/shop/en/prod...eth-1pce-.html it says it is for combination with a 44 t spur, so now i am really confused! I think i am done here adding links to different gears, hehe!

from what i remember to use the fg gears on a firehammer or such the motor mounts and gear carrier has to be changed or the mesh will not be correct.

Thanks Ratpower, If you use the stock gear count 19/48 the fg gears will work, if you change the ratio you need to change mounts.
