Nylon or Metal Gears?

Hi all,

Since this model comes out in both gear versions (and minimal price difference between the two), which one did you get?

IS there really any reason to get nylon gears?

My opinion only: if you’re going to put a big spring in, you need metal gears (and probably more metal parts as well). If you’re not going for a big spring, stick with the nylon gears because they’re cheap and you can just swap them out when they wear (or when you’re experimenting with parts and you stuff up and strip the gears…)

Just my approach, for what it’s worth.
