You know the old saying Ammdrew, Everything is possible - you just need to find the solution.
Yes, everything is possible. Ummm, I'm actually trying out some thing here on my 705... Still in the midst of doing it. Sort of a TOP SECRET thingy Just waiting for the correct rear belt The 210 belt was too long and so I went with a 204 toothed belt which turned out too tight

I hope the 207 toothed belt should work fine...

i also think they would of had custom made gears three years ago... i too would be estatic if they came up with one, but i doubt the first place you are going to see it is in a hobby store in texas.......
I just got 14T/16T and 13T/16T old Centax clutchbells. They told me that the 13T/16T was out of stock so I ordered the 12T/16T one. But in the end, it turned out that the label on the clutchbell was indeed 13T/16T (verified physically) while the packaging indicated a 12T/16T with the respective number

Last weekend, the optional pulleys with the 13T/16T clutchbell in a friend's car was simply ballastic. Imagine the 5 port Rody in the Reflex NT could only eat dusk from the back of a 3 port modified STS RS3 engine on the straights and out of corners

Yes, Serpent claimed that the 14T is impossible to do because of strength reasons... But I know some Japanese site and a German site that sells 3rd party 14T Centax pinions

I don't know if what you're saying is real or not but this is actually a common mistake amongst Dutch people (no offence to them). I know Salven is German but Dutch people generally have their numbers mixed up because of the way they say it in Dutch and then translate it back to English

Yes, steel ones are generally more expensive because they last longer. Slightly heavier I think

Steel pinions alot heavier. But why they're more expensive I don't know. You would think the aluminum pinions would cost more?

Steel is a lot harder to machine, and it is a little more expensive than aluminum. The material that the cutter for steel is made of is 25%-50% more expensive than the one needed for aluminum.

They also wear off longer. But in our RC arena, i do not think it worth it for the price u pay and the weight u have it on.
juz my 2 cents worth.

I like the steel pinions because they do last longer, but not weight. We race in a parking lot, lots of small pebbles. We try to blow the lot the best we can. With the aluminum pinions, they really get damaged and wear fast.

I would think the plastic spur gear would wear off first then either the alu. Theoritically, when small pebbles goes inbetween plastic and alu, the plastic would be the one that is affected first, not the alu. Just applying my ole sch theory, maybe my teacher had taught me wrong?

aluminum geasr definatly wear faster.. but pebbles equally destry both including spur..... i run aluminum normally as the wear is slow, and i can get plenty of race time before replacement is ness, but usually i replace do to a rock or pebbles input...... regardless of alu or steel. and the plastic is incredibly strong stuff...

I agree.

In some diffs you get a plastic gear and metal gear both and in most cases the metal gear will strip before the plastic one.
