Have you had good luck on the lockers and have they stripped any gears? I have a pair of them that look just like them but I thought they were made by Integy…

This will be first time using them.i will not keep plastic gears for long. I will go all metal gears when i go to alum gear housing and axles. As long as you have them lubed good it should not strip

A couple of well placed bolts and some super glue works great!

Hi guys. New here. I figured I should post here as I didn't find anything about aluminum gears. I was thinking of purchasing two sets of the hot racing aluminum gears for the drive shaft with the locked diff. I plan on doing mostly trailing and was wondering if anyone had experience with these gears or any tips about the gears or pinion I should use. From what I've read on this site steel pinion would be bad on aluminum gears. Anyways, like I said it's mostly for trailing and scale. Not speed or crawling. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

No response. Guess I'll go ahead and purchase and update after I try them.

I just run the stock gears, although I do run the Hot Racing lockers in one truck. The general consensus is that the stocks gears are stout and aluminium or any aftermarket gears are not necessary.

Thanks, I already ordered them. I'll give it a try and let you guys know what I think. Maybe post some pic if I can figure out how.
