i talked to these guys first hand, i think for all the gears it is like $170 USD(for the 2 speed gears).... $100 for input gears..... these gears are not made of aluminum or steel, it is a special material which they will not disclose, they are SELF lubing, and Supposivly after Thousands of Hours of use, there is NO visible wear... they had a machine runniing these gears, from 1 st to 2nd, then into reverse... and so on.... because i know people in the aero space technology... there are a few self lubing materials which they use to make space shuttles and such, which i think this is made out of.

Now THAT I can appreciate

Sorry didnt quite take a good look at it.

So its about the performance and not the bling-bling. Bring it!

Thats pretty awesome. Self lubing?! Some teflon like byproduct they invented I'm sure!

The color is pretty interesting. its like a mixture of aluminum, titanium and gold!

170 is pretty steep but I guess the performance is pretty impressive.

80 hours... is that 80 hours NO LOAD?
I wanna see results with that thing pushing 11 pounds of MT for 80 hours

Default That's great and all but,

WOW $270 or more just for gears and that's not all of the gears either! What I did was put a dab of graphite greese on my gears when I put them in and they are holding up great for only $119!

but look at their newest thing, the complete tranny, with numerous gearing options, they qoute turn you maxx into a rock crawler or high speed 90 + MPH runs!

Man, i would buy that, but it is probably around $400-500 for that one with different gears, but they will last a life time so they say! never ever break a tranny gear again, these would be great to finish off the bulletproof T-maxx with the Supermaxx parts!! WOW.. just think the RODY truck with this for the tranny..... can you say a SCREAMING truck!!

Default I can't say that I will never break another one but,

I can say that they are holding up very well to the Force .25 that stripped out 2 stock tranny's during break-in! I would like to see someone able to control a T-Maxx at 90mph! It's hard enough at 50!LOL it would be cool though!

the input and 2 speed is only 130 and the 2 speed is aluminum and the input is self lubing. ALSO the 2 speed gears are lighter than the plastic ones!
