If I could find some 2mm carbon fiber, I'd cut my own...

hi everybody

sorry to ask this question again (i bet it has been asked a billion times allready). does anybody make a reliable bevel gear set for the one-way / spool?

i know rc square makes an alluminum large gear, which should be bulletproof. also, it shouldn't flex, so would that prevent the small gear from breaking in an impact?

how about a pair of delrin gears? these should be much stronger than the originals. does anybody make such a set?

finally, is it worth at all upgrading the pro4? i'm afraid a pro5 will be released soon (or has it been already? (cyclone))

thanx

hernandez- you are way over geared. I run my V2 8x1 with a 74/19 on a midsize track, 50% technical. I run my V2 9x1 usually 74/20, sometimes 74/21. Your comm probably looks cherry red after one race.

Ok here is my problem. First off im running on asphalt. The car is having some issues with left had turns. Everything in fine when turning right. But the rear end gets really loose in almost every left turn. the problem is accentuated in slower corners.
Im running the stock setup on the car, spool up front and CS27 tires.
This is a new problem that has only come to light in the past 2 weekends i have raced.
