Check the Dubro gear. Maybe you can modify them to fit your needs. If not, why not got Carbon?

This is like a fg gear.  I bought one and it is strong and flexible. It is some kind of plastic and kinda looks like fg. http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXNM65&P=7

You can get a set of carbon fiber gear from graphtechrc.com for probably around $20-30. Much better than fiberglass gear - they explain why on their website.

Give them a call, great guys and American products.
