    The R&amp;P in my front axle is a Motive, it's been in there for about a year and has worked fine.

    <font color="green"> I assume that they're cheaper, I dunno. I ordered gears from Drivetrain Direct and didn't specify which brand I wantred, this is what they sent me. At least it's a name brand, I guess I won't worry about it. </font color>

    They put a set of Motive's in my dad's hot rod, a '51 GMC panel truck with a BBC and they have held up fine.
