Anybody know if there are any alternatives to the stock plastic idler gear and rear diff? I honestly don't care how noisy it gets, I just don't like how weak those 2 can be under bashing stress.
I'll continue looking around through the forums and various other sites... but... I can't seem to find any as of late. I don't MIND having the stock plastic ones... but it sure is a pain to replace them both. Just for secuirty's sake, as well.
Aluminum or steel would be an awesome find.
*Robinson Racing steel idler
Seems I'm not the only one having this. It appears as though more parts would have to be stolen from the XXX-T. Particularly because it's differential isn't a metal-gear diff, and is a ball-diff instead. Robinson also makes a hardened steel diff gear for that as well. I'm fairly certain that the transmission housing is identical from XXX-SCT to XXX-T, or the Speed-T. Correct me if I'm wrong on this assumption, but I'd essentially just have to build me up a XXX-T diff, and slap it in, to get my all-metal transmission going (along with that RR steel idler).
