I bought a set the other day and they appear VERY similar. The teeth of the HB gears are cut deeper with a flat on the top verses the Kyosho being sharper. I have one report of this helping another driver, just looking for imput so I can get another season out of the old girl. Any help would be appreciated
(ps- please keep it constructive
