This should hold up because front.
On the older TB04 aluminium front pilots held up pretty good too. Only the rear aluminium pilots were worse.

The fact, the new part is not anodized, irritates me too. Should be a golden hard coating.

I dont run the spur cover so I will see it! I also have the pretty aluminium gear diff housings, they seal better and dissipate the heat better to keep the diff more consistent

no difference in wear and tear! Unless you try to overtighten the screws to mount the Spur Gear!

Dogbone of driveaxles eats eventually up the slots. But i think, it doesn't, because it connects front dogbone only. Rear would be much worse. TB04 had that problem with light weight propeller shafts.

I am running it with an spool, that causes a bit off wear on the axles and cups, because there is more tension on it.

Plus I think it will depend also, what motor you run it with

Lightweight Oudrives (#54544) with blades should help your "spool wear problem"...never had wear on my cups at all my cars and blades are easily exchanged.
