Fastlane Hobbies has upgraded to a new heat treat oven. This process of carburizing takes a few days and each batch of gears is brought up to 1500 degrees then held for 10-12 hours in a oxygen free atmosphere absorbing carbon to an acceptable depth while it hardens to the appropriate Rockwell (HRC) we determine suitable for industrial use. Gears are then quenched in a proprietary chemical blend to prevent gaseous decarb during quench and depending upon gear size, tooth count, etc.., will be hardened between 45 and 60 HRC after tempering for several hours at 400 degrees.

XO-1 Center Spool
When purchasing gears it is important to choose ones appropriate for your RC. Fastlane gears are precise and hardened twice over and than tempered. This is highly uncommon in todays hobby as more and more manufactures produce cheap products. The vast majority of our pinions are 10mm wide, not including the hub so be sure you have the room to utilize the features of a more durable Mod 1 or Mod 1.5 (12mm wide) pinion gear. Currently we do not offer up other pitches or tooth counts other than listed however that will change as we develop more application specific conversion kits and OEM options. We also offer Universal Heavy Duty Hardened Center Diff spools made with our proprietary pinions so if you order a Center diff be certain it is the tooth count you prefer as most are designed to swap the entire spool for a gear swap. The X-Maxx Slipper Eliminators and gear specific applications will be found on their appropriate page. Please keep in mind these gears are in high demand right now and made in small batches.
***All gears have a 30 day exchange against manufacturers defects if returned unused in original sealed packaging so please do a visual inspection before installing. Please note that any gear opened and damaged due to customer use and improper alignment by the user is not warrantable and these are considered consumable products. We suggest using the many online resources including YouTube for informative "how to" videos for proper installation. Gears properly meshed will last a long time and slowly wear over time. The Paper Method works well. The amount of life is solely depicted upon user installation and application. Please understand that due to the precision nature of each gear they can be snug to fit and will require some finesse when installing. Various manufacturers use slightly differing axle sizes in their motors and results may vary from user to user. Every gear is honed and checked for Clearance against a TP standard 8mm shaft. It is recommended you use Red Loctite when applying gear to your application. Do NOT attempt in anyway to tap gear on with a hammer or other device if your axle varies differently than the standards presented here for testing. We are more than happy to hone any gear further to allow more clearance necessary for your application free of charge.
