I had the main gear strip - but it was caused by builder error - I had too much slop in the gear mesh.

I have run the CNC 8.8 gear in both of my airframes for many flights without any stripping issues at all

Yes they are adjustable.

The clutch stack is adjustable & the entire engine/shroud is adjustable

Simon,

The clutch bell bearing blocks have a 2mm slot cut in the frame, if you are running the 8.6 gear push the block forward, if you run the 8.8 gear push the block to the rear, all areas that would require the engine, fan, and bearing blocks to move have a 2mm slot cut in the frame for either the 8.6 or 8.8 gear

I made this comment awhile ago about taking the time to make sure you check out the amount of adjustment on the motor and main gear.

First I made sure the tail gear mesh with main gear was perfect,
then tightened up the three main bearings,
then I made sure gear mesh with pinion gear was perfect.

The Outrage to me has the best adjustments IMO to get good gear mesh.

IF you strip gears then for sure your setup was not done right.

I took extra time in this area to make sure it was right on.

This hobby sucks, when your not flying.

On my 2nd Vel50 I have tried adjusting the pinion to main gear mesh about 50x now. I still have a bit of lash and the clutch block is as far back is it can go. I might just have a "small" main gear as tolerances go. Will futz with it some more, but otherwise I'm just going to fly it as is, and if I strip it out, so be it. I'll get another
