You GET what you pay for.
I wasn't bitching about the cost of the gears. I have been into Rc's for 3 years and have spent a lot of money in the sport. I know it isn't cheap. I also realize that I have added a lot of weight and will need to beef up the entire drive system including the motor, but my original point was the gears I thought should be steel to begin with since there is such a small contact area for the axles, it seems to be an accident waiting to happen even if I didn't add weight. I know I induced the failure, I just thought for the extra $10.00 bucks or so at the production level It would have been a good feature to incorporate.
