I tried the metal gears and blew up 3 of them in one race day due to the pawl type shift mechanism. These gears are made by HPI but they are not any more reliable than the gears that came with the car.
To fix the problem put in the Ipanema Blackhawk transmission. This transmission will allow you to use Evolva pinion gears so that you can quickly change ratios based on the track you are running on.
I agree, Kyosho should have fixed this long ago but they didn't. Until they do, the only reliable alternative is the Blackhawk. I ran mine all year long with no gear replacements.
