Default gears, gears, gears ????

hey everyone. I just got a 24.7 as you might already know from my post awhile ago. Anyway, none of my tranny gears have gone out on my yet(knock on wood) but if, or when they do i dont know what kind to get. I've looked at the rix gears and that is only 20 bucks and states it puts up with a 21 engine rated at around 2.5 hp, which is .1 less than the 24.7 ratings. I also looked at supermaxx. it is more expensive but probably worth the money. please help me and feel free to name any other gears that would hold up to the 24.7

thanks

Ive ran the Ue 10mm in every big block truck Ive built, this is by far the best money can buy right now. However Im waiting on an OTB Infinity FOC just like alot of others!! At this point I would recomend the 8mm or 10mm FOC.

Ya the Rix is a good FOL for small engines. But it uses the same stock gears which big blocks will eat alive. The 8 and 10mm FOC is not just a forward only setup, but has the strongest and most reliable gears known to the maxx tranny, and not only that but the shafts are inlarged to prevent flexing under serious loads(powerful .21 and up engines) which 90* of the time leads to gear failiors!!
