    RE: crappy spur gears

    if I had a tornado I would go for the single speed..time after time I've read on hear that nobody makes aluim spur gears..and also read u wouldnt want them if they did..so far I've been lucky with my lightning but then again I havent ran it much..it being an on-roader may make a diff. too..

    RE: crappy spur gears

    i have an idea that will get rid of the whole meshing the gears part all together, but im gonna patten pit first, the engine gears will be on the chassis all the time, But at the same time be separate from the engine.

    RE: crappy spur gears

    You do not want alu. spur gears unless you have a slipper clutch... becouse if you take a jump and land hard some other things can brake... Get a new clutch bell... that is what is wrong...
