Default Metal spur gears for the Villain EX?

Does anyone have a source for metal spur (not pinion) gears for the Villain EX? Big motors shred the stock plastic gears! thanks in advance!

I don't know the exact type of gear they use (metric/imperial) but these guys have a bunch of gears. http://www.sdp-si.com/

Anything made for the E-Maxx will work. The pitch is 32P.

Robinson Racing make steel gears as do others:

Another option would be the gears made from Delrin instead of nylon.

I also think that I may have come up with something. I was wandering through the '08 Tower catalog, and found pinion gears in sizes up to 32 tooth in a bunch of different pitches. If the stock gear ratio is 2:1 (14t pinion, 28t spur) i could duplicate this in any pitch as both gears were the same. All of these pinions listed are either steel or aluminum. I would effectively be using a small (fewer teeth) pinion as the pinion, and a large pinion as the spur. Both woould be metal and able to take the power without any problem. This is basically the long-winded version of what Kmot was saying. Thanks for pushing me in the right direction, K!
