How come the "metal" servo upgrade kit doesn't upgrade the biggest gear (the one that the servo arm attaches to) to metal?? Am I missing something here??

All of the other metal gear servos I own have metal gears at the end of the gear train, not the beginning. Really weird that the gear that takes all the abuse is still plastic.:no:
