    Yeah when your rig is 20 yards away from you and you run up against a tree or something you miss reverse....Or at least your legs do

    When you hit something and strip a gear, you miss the FOC

    I would say FOC. Cheaper in the long run and you don't have the added weight of steel gears

    Not me...

    BTW, RRP dosnt have steel gears for reverse. The reverse primary is aluminum and you still have to use the stock forward and reverse output gears...
    No slipper/tall gearing/power = broken parts.

    its not a little its a lot. i only run a rrp steal top shaft and first gear. an it works out great. less rotational mass in the tranny means more power to the ground and its not as hard on the engine and clutch

    you could run steel aluminum gear in your trans to keep rev BUT steel on aluminum is a bad idea that aluminum gear will get eaten. but i dont think the plastic will fair to well againsted the aluminum gear. i think GH makes the fwd/rev output gear.
