Ok here are the exact measurements:

Align Main Gear = 36 grams
FAD Main Gear = 64 grams
(28 grams difference, which is about half the weight of a standard servo.)

Align Pinion = 20 grams
FAD Pinion = 26 grams

Thanks Miro! Really appreciate it. While I have had no problems in using the -1 gear as far as stripping, I'm not a huge fan of the tighter mesh between the gears. If I start noticing bearings going in the cltuch stack, maybe I'll make the switch over to the mod 1 gear set.

Actualy Miro you could cut down on the work and just give 6mm and 5mm motor shaft options with 2 set screws and foget the bottom treads on the pinion.

MOD 1.0 is not really suitable for E-conversions. The only option is using 13T / 116T for motors with low KV, like Neu 1615H/1.5Y (450 Kv). If we go to motors with higher Kv, like Scorpion HK-4035-560 or Hyperion HP-4035-560 (560 Kv) and 12S batteries, it's required 11T pinion, which is not good, otherwise 10S batteries with 13T pinion are to be used.

Does anyone know what happened to these guys?? Their Site is down now. I hope they did not go out of business. I love their Main gears!

Yes, from what I was told, they are finished... Glad I got mine before they closed shop. It would be nice if someone stateside could pick up something like this.

Seriously? They closed shop?

I did not know that Was a great product and Kevin would have gone through a lot more main gears otherwise!

Last I spoke with Miro, cost of producing the products was too high, pity I believe people would have paid the cost increase to get these gears.

Yep I agree... should have just increased cost to match...

My local hobby shop is very happy they bought a lot of these gears as guys running them will not be happy going back to stock! He is keeping a PRIVATE stock of them for himself....

Sent Miro a PM to see how he is doing. He was so nice to deal with last summer and worked with me on a custom pinion design. Sad thing for me is I have an amazing 13T pinion, but need a 11T version. Even with a 116T main gear, I still need to gear down. Maybe if Finless will share his source via PM, I can pick up a spare

I just killed the first Miro 115T main gear after about 1,5 years of use! The last months has been together with a Scorpion 4525-520 LE motor. Great gears!

It has been used in a T700N, T700LE-KDE conversion and a T700E with 4 crashes on it.
