    Title says it all. Are the metal internal gears on the ads7m compatible with the ads-5. The plastic gears on the ads-5 stripped on my kids truck. I did a little looking for the plastic gears but everywhere was out of stock.

    One of the places I found had the ads-7 metal gears available. They look the same from pictures but without being able to physically compare them I can’t say for sure. Any help would be much appreciated

    I don't know if there would be a compatibility issue on the voltage or not, but, on the Granite and Senton 4x4's it's a direct drop in replacement for the ads-5.

    The only issue that I could fathom would be if the esc on the voltage could supply enough power to it, but I personally can't see that as being an issue.

    Hopefully someone with more knowledge will chime in.

    Yes, the ads7m is a drop in replacement for the ads-5.
    I have upgraded mine ads-5 after stripping the plastic gears too:mad:
