What's the advantage to using those? Is it just a matter of saving weight and rotating mass?

I've thought about those too but I am concerned about durability. Also, I'm wondering if it would mesh better than the steel gears thereby making them suitable for use for lighter weight diff fluids. The original steel diff didn't mesh so well with the kit stock 30000 fluid but it did better with the heavier fluids like 80000 on up.

Thanks.

I have raised my 733, for almost a year, in very difficult parking lot track, I had an excellent experience with this car, I will say has been the best car I had, the only issue was the tank, the car was strong enough, it behave excellent in a low traction track, this has been always my problem with the 720 & 710.
We will be having our endurance race in June, it is a four 30 minutes race (four different days), we do this to close the season, so I change all plastic parts with the new M type; change my Set Up, with the one DJ had the new track record. I when for practice, to check this Set Up and to see if there will be changes in the car, I have to say that I thought that it was impossible to improve this car more, I was wrong; this car has a lot to give for improvement. If I was happy with my car with stock Set Up and Standard parts from factory, now I am in Love with this car.
