Default Tearing up my first Gear!! Help needed

Hey Ladies and Gents I am a noob to the RC world. I bought a new Losi XXL last winter. My problem is I am tearing up my First Gear in my truck. I also see a lot of wear on the 2nd Gear also. Can anybody point me in the right direction into fixing this? Do they make aftermarket metal gears?? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

ANPACMN

They do make metal gear but it sounds like your gears are out of sync and are not mesching right. I have had the same issue with my aftershock and it cost me gears too. I am taking mine to a local hobby shop to have them mesh my gears correctly. Also make sure all the gears are tight on the motor and transmission. Check the bearing on the motor clutch too.
