electric or nitro? If electric stick with plastic. if nitro steel. When you ask a question be sure to give a little info on your application. It makes it easier to answer your questions. Also give the readers time to read and answer before you bump a thread.

if the gears inside the trany are, plastic than a metal spur can strip them espially if you land with the throttle on. i whould get metal gears inside the trany if your, gone to use a metal spur gear.

I agree, keep using a plastic spur gear if you have plastic gears in your tranny. If you choose to have a metal spur gear, be sure to use metal gears in your tranny aswell.
