    They should last pretty long. Put the pinion closer to the spur next time. But not too close. Put a peice of paper between the spur and pinion and push them together, that will be close enough.

    i put mine close as i can spin it freely with my hand.if you cant spin the gears with your hand it is too tight

    There you go .Thats good info. guys thats how I do it and yes they should last a long time, before replacing with new one make sure that your motor mount is tight and your motor is secured tightly to the mount. Two major causes of stripped spur gears are , gear mesh to tight or loose, and motor slipping on the mount or chassis
