    Make sure the gears are meshed correctly. I have stripped 4 in the past 2 weeks lol. Pinion is also a factor, make sure it's very tight!! One slip and it will take off your gears.

    +1 gear mesh is usually the main factor in stripage, the thing about metal spurs is when they strip due to a bad mesh they strip your pinions too plastics are cheaper and metal to metal is louder imo

    Also metal to metal can tear other things inside of the transmission up. Plastic gears stripping saves the rest of the system from crashing.
