Default Direct Spool Or Bolt On Locker?

I Keep Blowin Out My Locker. I Was Wonderin If I Just Get The Direct Spool Gear Will That Eleviate The Problem Or Should I Get The Bolt On Style Locker That You Still Run The Plastic Gear In The Middle? Too Many Options! Right Now Im Just Runnin The Stock Plastic Set Up With Some Bolts Through It

hey

I use the integy gear set and have not hurt a locker since. (I even have two spares that I will likely never use). (LMK if you want them, I'll give you a deal)

Hahaha, either that was caps lock, or a terrible misunderstanding...

Locker all the way... The locking plates beef the hex up that you keep stripping. However, now instead of the hex rounding out. The gear strips. But, when you install a locker the drivetrain is then pretty solid. The next weak link would be the counter gear. Don't worry about that to much though, it takes a heck of alot of torque and use and abuse to cause problems to that.

If you want it to be the last time you will ever have to open the case up just go with the Integy gear set.
