    The traxxas gears are sintered metal. Not sure you can heat treat them. All the hardened gear sets I have seen are machined steel.

    Subscribed..the 4-tec is by far my favorite. I've had an x0-1 and still have a brushless revo. The 4-tec is awesome. I'm glad to see someone bringing the spark back.

    I was really pleased when I did mine. Even better is that it holds up and doesn't turn gray when scratched. I guess the dye goes fairly deep
