Well, what I did was put in the steel pinions and use the lightened clutch bell to compensate for the weight issues

Steel ones are the best. They last a long time and you don't have any problems with debris chewing them up. Definitely worth the extra weight.

Does this mean you had gear problems with the RRR (non EVO no WCE)

We all are are using stock lever and are perfectly alright about it.
ANd if your level touches the Spur gear, slightly bend the lever up-ward off the spur and you are safe.

Nope... The first kit I got for the V-One RRR series was the V-One RRR WCE version. Had two of these kits and no problem with the spur gears stripping. Only problem was that the aluminum pinion gears wear out easily. And then I bought the V-One RRR Evo version. Still same experience with regards to the spur gears and pinion gears. Although the spur gears of the Evo look tougher and harder compared to the WCE version. Still the aluminum pinion wear out quickly... Since then, no issues with my spur gears stripping. I'm still using the original spur gears that came with the kit...

They are made of a kevlar compound right, the spur gears i mean. Interesting that the pinion are the ones to go. Are you using the hardened or steel ones? Is it the 1st or 2nd gears that go or both?

Not sure of what material the spur is made of. The aluminum pinions are the ones to go. The first pinion gear is usually the first one to go. The second pinion gear goes later but I change both when they show signs of wear. This was what I did with my V-One RRR WCE. With the Evo, after wearing out the aluminum pinions, I immediately upgrade to the steel ones and also upgraded to the lightene clutch bell to compensate for the heavy pinions...

Hehehe... Well, what I noticed with the aluminum pinion gears is that they lasted only for a short time. I change the pinion gears once they start to sharpen. Don't want to risk of stripping my spur gears. I ordered from my local hobby shop 15T, 16T, 17T, 20T, 21T, 22T steel pinion gears. The 17T 21T, and the 22T are from Kawahara. The rest are Kyosho...
