If you are going to use the 14T or smaller pinion, then you will need the smaller 4mm pinion adapter. Which in turn needs the shaft shortened.

You can also purchase the pre cut, flat spot made msh shaft for this very purpose. Takes only few minutes to exchange shafts.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

Here is the drop in replacement that you are looking for if interested, this is exact length needed and fits in that motor like a glove.

Here is the adaptor as well for the 13 adn 14 tooth pinions.

I had to cut mine too. Takes no time with a Dremel cutoff disc. Good to see RH is carrying shaft spares. Thks Shawn for info.

That must be one of the first scorpion motors.
You have to cut the shaft or put a new one, since the 14T pinion adapter isn't hollow all the way like the 15T adapter is.
