Default Compatible HPI (or other brand) Transmission?

Is there a Compatible HPI (or other brand) Transmission that will work with the .18 XP stock (or compatible HPI) clutch gear set that will bolt in a Tornado XP???? Because im just fed up with striped spur gears....lol...!

there is a big problem with the gears, i dont run my redcats anymore. the clutch bell seems to be the problem or at least a big problem. there is a post about the hpi clutch bell but you will still have to use your stock spur gear, the funny thing is that they seem to only strip on one spot on the gear not the whole gear.

I have an idea of why they strip out. If they are poured in a mold to form the gear, you have to pour it in the top and let it run down into the entire mold. IF the top is the last part to be poured they have to like smash the top part of the mold on to make the teeth form. Therefore that would be the weakest part. Any other better sugestions?
