I have been using them with no problems. The plain label gears are made in Italy and are imported my a known name brand company which sells other racing parts.

Call me old-fashioned but I like Richmond.
1- They have the numbers for the pinion depth and the backlash written on them, they have already been lapped in as a set at these numbers.
2-They are made in Liberty, SC. I try to support the local economy if I can.

got a set of plain box 5:67's and without anyshims pinion depth is still wat too shallow. Guess I would have to have pinion carrier machined down or something to get them to work.

Well, now i'm not so sure about them. I sure don't want to order a set that my gear guy is gonna cus me for. Some of you haven't had any problems and some of you have so that makes me think these are slightly blem'd gears and thats why they are so cheap.

I just noticed that JR has their PRC gears for $119 and thats what i'm running now so I might go that way.

Well them PRC gears come from the same distributor as the Quick plain label gears. What i have seen the most problems with is runout in the stock mini spool carriers and full spools. This affects your clearences as stated above, may not all be in the gear. By the way i have seen gears at Quick that were defective and he makes good on them.
