With a Capricorn car I can guarantee you that stripping a gear is impossible.
Or you have to forgot to put in your engine bolts like I did, then it will strip after a couple of laps.
I was curious to find out if I would be able to strip a gear so I ran the same set of gears for almost all my testing days at my home track. At the end the pinion looked like this and still no stripping occurred:
Regarding the MTX-5, I would consider putting a track rod or brace between the radio tray mount and the two speed axle mount. It's not normal for the chassis to flex under braking. Of course this is also aided by the orientation of the rear brake lever. Some time ago I've seen pictures of Tironi's MTX-5 (now driving Capricorn) who had a long track rod between the radio tray and rear bulkheads.
