New eight tooth gear ?
Posted 23 November 2012 - 09:30 PM
I am tired of watching my 8t gears died miserable deaths in the portal hubs. Sometimes the corners of the teeth round off when the gear slides into the recesses of the adjoining beams. This new version looks like this will no longer be a problem. It also looks as though each individual tooth will be stronger due to the increased mass.
I am frequently inspired by this TV show. http://www.powernati...xtreme-off-road

From the picture, I don't think so. That was the main point of the grooved shape of the old gear. It was the only bush-like piece you could do that with and was occasionally used in place of regular or half bushes in that situation.
However, I think the new gear is still better overall. Apart from being fragile, the old gear tends to shift around any axle it's placed on (for the same reason that it can rotate inside plates) and make it fall out of alignment with other gears.
