I have one of the original dex410's. I wish there would have been some kind update package for people who had drivetrain issues with the original car.

It's fine. Whole week in Worlds with absolutely zero issues. All gears looked like new. What do you do with the material info other than it's metal ?

Factory offered -50% driveshaft sets for all who bought the original model. This to me is more than enough since if you just built the parts correctly and serviced them as supposed they lasted just fine.

Well, there are metal, and there are metal. I've lost count on how many diffs with striped gear, and chewed up housing i've seen. Everyone has been based on aluminum cast gears. Never have i seen steel diff internals chewed up the same way. I've seen some real horror-stories where there clearly have been issues with the play after assembly, but it's sadly apparent that steel-gears are the more forgiving way to go, and casted aluminum gears simply wont forgive the slightest misconfiguration. A shim short anyone?
Since i know how to service a diff, i can live with either, but it's undoubtedly a "feature" if it has steel diff internals. However, no surprise if they are aluminum alloys, to chase weight.

GS racing does as well, and i'm not sure about Kyosho, sure looks like cast alloy. It's a legitimate question. Cast alloy gears works, thats not the thing. If you mess up with steel gears and get it just a tad to tight or to lose, it's strong enough to survive. The cast aluminum alloy parts aren't, which is a problem for the new guy, or possibly the casual driver who doesn't tear down the gears all that often.

You've had the gears in your hand. Cast, or machined, steel or alloy?

My kyosho mp9e doesn't have steel gears, I'm not sure about the name of the material (I'm Italian, here it's call "zama"), but it's super light.
