Rod I like cheap ones!  I've run GM, Richmond, Zoom (years ago) and Motive Gear lately and have no complaints from any other than the Richmond gear makes a good bit of noise (Studebaker gear).  

Don't quote me on this but I think that Motive is making gears for Strange now and If I'm wrong then Ron Owens will correct me.

But yeah, I like the cheap ones best as all seem to last about the same.

I think ken can show how good a motive gear is he put it to the test the hard way.
