In the end, the aluminum bevel gear might not be worth it, cause you still end up with a damaged drivetrain
I have had the same thing happen. You make one part stronger it still has to give somewhere.

Default breakage

Yeah, it all comes down to which part you would prefer to replace all the time. I remember the time when a nitro car "MET" (rear ended) with my XXX-S and it destroyed the center of the diff pulley.

Hara should be in the US by end of the month or early July.

din.
what's wrong with the stock bearing...they're already super smooth and lubed with light oil... I'm able to get the drive train to spin freely with the stock bearingss

with the $99.99 I'd rather buy other neccessary parts. springs, tires, wheels, spare parts. etc.

RC

You are right about some stock bearings! I used to get my stocks super smooth and thought these were the best.....and then a fellow racer showed me how smooth his car was with ceramics and holy Sh!t. I (just my personal opinion) think that the bearings are well worth the investment. I have used them for years now and I can get my belt car ATLAS YM-34 SI to free spin longer than any of the other belts or any Shaft car out there! But yes that kind of money could easily go to motors, batts ect..
