    Anyone have experience with the delrin gears?

    Hey. Just wondering how strong the delrin gears are. I have the delrin top and aluminium idler. I have a nib delrin diff gear 2519x that ill like the run and was wondering if its stronger and even worth using over the stock 2519 nylon gear.

    I've stripped the delrin top gears in a Slash, but managed to race a full season with a VXL-equipped SRT without any issues with the delrin/aluminum gear combo. Also managed to blow a delrin top gear in my TRX-1, but that was my fault.

    I've only run the delrin diff gear once. I would say it's better than the stock gear for sure. Mine failed because I decided to strap in an 8-cell nimh pack (just goes to show you how long ago that was) in my VXL-equipped LS-II for some speed runs. The diff started to work it's way loose over time and I was running high voltage on pavement. My fault once again. The teeth were fine, but the center of the gear melted due to the excessive heat from the loose diff.

    Delrin gear is better, but considering how rare they are, I'm not sure if the difference is worth running such a rare piece.

    Well Harry balls diff are not suppose to be a slipper clutch haha. I don't ever remember having a ball diff fail on any rc I have owned. I do not pay on running more the 2s and run lowest a 8.5t tekin system. The reason I want to run this gear is bc it is machine and will be super smooth. I use heavy duty high pressure resistance grease on my ball diff. Shouldn't have any issues.
