What would be the negatives of using a metal spur gear? Thanks
Just guessing here...I wonder if Traxxas wants the spur gear to strip first, lest adverse energy be transmitted into a part that's more expensive and/or difficult to repair.
But what do I know? I'm a noob.
more wear on the pinion. more noise. Just a thought. I havent used any metal spurs.
More rotating weight and noise and yes its a cheap weak link!
Better to strip a spur gear than an internal gear!!
