Default Cen Matrix R2 center spur gear

Does anybody know if a center diff spur gear from a Kyosho would fit my Matrix? the one it comes with is a clutch bell eating SOB!!! the teeth on it are shapped like this \_/ ,I'd like to find a gear with a wide tooth pattern and spread the load over a wider area, thanks for any info.

the mp777 46T lightened spur gear will work - make sure you use the R2 oring AND a diff gasket.

thanks TRArerna, man the stock gear sure eats'em up, I checked the Cen site but did not find the answer, I'll def get a MP777 gear and a gasket. I'm not sure that the MXS24 would be any better. what do you think?

actually... you might want to try the kyosho's big bore shocks too. I know the ST-RR ones work quite well on the TR. Also, most people that have done the truggy to the buggy-style chassis brace conversion use the ST-RR hardened diff gears for front and rear. you'll find that a LOT of parts are interchangeable. The hotbodies gears should work too.

I have two sets of Jammin 16mm big bores, they seem to work good. So you're saying that the ST-RR gears (ft, center ,rear) will fit on the R2 cases?
as well as the hotbodies gears (D8?) thats good to know, it opens a window should parts availability become an issue. Any more parts that can be swapped... I'm all ears!!
