is this the place youre using? http://www.rushgears.com  im saving this in case i ever do my edgerunner brushless conversion ive dreamed about.  this could be a required upgrade.  i think its awesome youre doing this and if i still had my old stripped rearends to donate to the cause i would.  i encourage anyone who can spare any parts to the cause to do so.  it would pay off for every tyco fan in the end.

Yeah, keep fighting the good fight. I was looking to get some custom gears made for myself before I joined this forum. Glad to know I'm not the only one. Hope you get a good deal with the guy, cuz it'd be nice not having to worry about stripped gears ever again. Keep us posted. And for now, put me down for 2 FTs and 2 bandits. :)

Theres a company I cant remeber the name off had I looked them up not to long ago they can make gears for under 5 bucks in plastic and they would do other materials like aluminium and glass etc. I  need a to bring them in and get them copied and send them the file. I m goin to look into them this summer when I get more money. They said they could make other stuff to like battery doors etc.

Ok so I just got off the phone with a company out of Dallas not far from me that says they can make gears. I asked him ballpark on what it would be and he said a rough estimate would be $200-300 for the first gear but only $2-5 for each one after. The material would be delrin but I could have them made out of aluminum or steel for not much more per gear.

$200 for one gear would be crazy unless I can sell a bunch of them but he thinks there is a way to do them all cheaper if I bring him a hand full of different gears. I dont imagine I would get out of a set of bandit gears for less than 400 but if I wanted to make say 50 extra sets it would only cost about 500 more.

If he says I can have the first set made for $100 and the next set made for $20 each I will buy at least 10 more sets

Im gonna go by on monday and drop some examples off and we will see what he says. If I can get them reasonable would anybody want gears?

I would think a person would happily pay $30-40 to fix there broken bandit or hopper.
