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.

Default Front Spool Question

Hello to all-
Last Saturday between heats I had to replace the 40 tooth ring gear and the 16 tooth bevel gear on my front spool. There was a slight clicking noise up front.
The gears were the option carbon graphite and they only lasted two weekends.
Any tips to prevent this?
Do I need to shim the spool differently than what the instructions say?
Thanks in advance!

Got the same issue,the front gears are gone too waste, very soon.I think I d am doing something wrong,but don;t get the hang off it what to do..

Car runsgreat when it works,only the gear thing is a bit off an let down.

The manual shimming is too tight for my taste,it will cause binding,with the bearing

I had the same issue so I went back to the front gear diff with 500,000 diff oil, works awesome for me
