Its probably best to use an aluminium with the Kyosho plastic gear.. although I don't know of anyone that makes a mod 1 aluminium gear!
Hardened steel pinnions are the way to go (I like Novak). I don't think anyone is making aluminum pinnions from good material and hard anodyzed.

In general I agree, but not with the Kyosho plastic gear. It's not made out of the same plastic material as the evolva spurs.

Anyhow I'll test my car to see how long it will last

I use steel with the Kyosho plastic spurs, there is no problem. Plastic spur gears are very sensistive to the gear mesh, it needs to be set correctly.

How close is your mesh? I leave close to no play, this way allow the gears to set in after a couple of runs

Can't verify, but last time I had an ofna ring gear in my possession the holes lined up with the kyosho diff casing. I think one of us will have to bite the bullet and buy it lol

Which center diff is the best to use with the DM-1/Teckno conversion if you are switching out the 2 speed? Model or part number(s) would be appreciated.

Here are some pics of my projects.

Jammin X2 Pro diff. is what they are using here. I've got that one and I've got an RC8 center diff. I'm waiting for this to arrive and will be playing with it this weekend. The Jammin diff fits for sure.

just fixed up my GTx1 jammin, i had 5,20,3 in my diff. hard springs all around with sponge tires.

problem is it skid at the rear when throttle out of corner or brake hard.

could be the brandless tires or road(just a regular car park)
