Default nitro hawk transmission gears

Quick question about gears
I want to upgrade all my gears to run a stronger motor
I noticed that the hopup idler gear (1996x) is aluminum, while new planetary gear diff (2388x) is steel, and stock top drive gear is steel as well.
wouldn't there be a problem running an aluminum idler with steel gears?
Is there a steel idler I can use?

Just saw this, there is a steel idler gear for the nitro hawk, I believe it's the same as in the rustler vxl or slash.

I also got the aluminum one back in the day and retired the Nitro Hawk years later with the gear still in there and intact, never had a problem with the transmission while running a OS .18.
