    Most probably the issue that caused your first gear to get eaten the first time was not solved simply by replacing the gear, so the next one got eaten right away. I would take apart the gearbox completely and look for any abnormality Lost tooth, stuck clutch etc.

    I personally think that the 3.3 has too much torque for the plastic gears, just replace them with steel.

    Did you change the tooth count of the gear? If you did, it's possible the gear mesh has changed which can result in stripped gears. Torque is not a problem - I'd look at how the gears are meshing and the condition of the transmission bearings. You'll get it though - don't worry.

    no disrespect but he is talking about his first gear gearing inside the engine. Not too, many options inside for size change, the stripping and meshing issue is usually related to the spur and clutch bell exterior of the transmission
