Here is how mine is set up on my DLE 35 RA
Pinion: Rhino 12T .6 pitch 5mm shaft pinion gear was used "T-Rex 500 pinion". The pinion is long and it will not fit through EME starter bracket because it is bigger on one end. The pinion is wider at the set screw. I drilled the hold in the starter frame a couple drill sizes bigger but that probably was not needed to be done.
Turnigy 3548/1100 KV motor. This motor was over kill but it should work for the bigger motors too. I had to reverse the motor 5mm shaft and add a couple of flat spots for the set screws. I am not using a c-clip on the motor shaft. I am using a couple of brass washers for shims between the pinion and motor to take up the slack. That way the motor does not walk forward and back.
Spacer adapter: I had a spacer made for the motor. The motor has a 5mm shaft with a bolt pattern of 25 and 19. I used the 19mm pattern to bolt the motor to the EME starter frame. I used the other two bolt holes to mount the spacer to the motor with countersunk screws. Spacer thickness with my calipers was .310" but I could have it at .300" if I wanted to make the pinion stick out over the idle gear a bit farther.
After building this I had a thought I could have added a longer shaft to the motor and bolted the motor to the frame with out a spacer. But the pinion I choose is hard and not drilled all the way through at 5mm. So the pinion would not just slide on backwards for a easy installation. I will look for another pinion that is drilled all the way for my next build and see if it will work.
