who wants to replace servo gear? if you buy a couple of set of plastic servo gear, you better go to a metal gear servo.

How frequent do you put on and take off your horn? Frankly, I seldom do that. Even if your gears went worn, there are replacement parts out there. You can't expect everything went perfect without wearing in R/C. To me, I've tried 9402, 2000, 2015, 2143, 2144, etc., 2015 is always my pick for EP.

Nobody wants to replace servo gear. That's only a solution to the problem IF it occurs. To me, I don't have spare servo gear and I have NEVER broken any gear. That's why I like it.

Ernest: I think you can have the aluminium spur gear adaptor... I got the one made by ToBee a long time ago, which is different from the one made by HPI. It's just a adaptor, without aluminium gear.
For the hex hubs, in the past, I used those Atlas one, so I think you can make use of them instead of getting HPI's...
I also got the front aluminium diff. holder (the two discrete metal blocks) but I don't think they are essential parts...
I think you can then keep your pro3 under $2000...

I managed to break the plastic gears on my 2015 once. Made the mistake of installing the high torque servo saver from Kawada on the SV10.... it was so high torque that it didn't do much servo saving! Fortunatley plastic gears are cheap!!

I also stripped the one and only plastic gear in my metal geared 9402 before!

Thats when you go from a 2.6mm screw to a 3mm screw for Futabas, or a 12mm length screw to a 15mm length screw for KOs. So far no real complaints for EP. I find that the metal gears in my 9402 has quite a lot of backlash also.........

And don't forget most metal gear servos have one plastic gear in the system as a weak link!!! So if it breaks....it breaks.... regardless of metal or plastic!
