Not needed at all

The Savage tranny (unlike others LoL) is tough as rock. It will withdstand the worst and most severe abuse.

I know that because I have a sav with a C5 and my tranny is still like brand new.

Only dogbones needs to be updated, but that's not part of the tranny to me...

Check this out, I have copied this from the HPI site regarding tranny upgrades:
Available soon from HPI Racing is our new Aluminum Drive Gear 18-23T for the Savage monster truck! With its lighter rotating weight, this gear allows the Savage to accelerate faster, and also enables to drivetrain to run with less resistance than the stock drive gear.
Might be worth checking out, but in my opinion the stock tranny is built solid

Yeah, but it's actually a downgrade in strenght. I though this guy was asking how to make it thougher

Anyway, yes the alum gear are nice. I already ordered a set and will test them soon...
