I have three vehicles with the same gearbox as my temper Gen 2 and all three of had catastrophic failure from the factory does anybody know of any crossovers from saying maybe Redcat War the other Horizon brands that has an aluminum gearbox upgrade available? I think the Redcat Everest 16 might be a possible crossover part does anybody know for sure?

What exactly is failing? The case itself or the gears? My gen 1 temper trans has taken a beating for 5 years, its in a barrage now and still has never broke. I have several redcat parts on my rigs. The only thing different on the trans might be the case mounting points. My buddy has a everest 16 I can look at if you want.

that would be great if you can look at your buddies Redcat and see if there's any difference in the gearbox. The small side of the gearbox cover and cracks at the top bearing which in turn gives enough space for the gears to grind each other. I have an original temper barrage Doomsday and the temper Gen 2 and all of mine have cracked even one that I had not touched at all had a crack through it from being over tightened by the factory or something the only fix for this problem I feel is to upgrade to an aluminum gearbox housing thank you for your input and I appreciate anything you can find sure would be nice to confirm the parts will interchange before I go and blow any cash on the parts and find out that they don't
