    Hello Tesla Engineers,

    I don't know the configuration of the inside of your gear drive is. If failures are because of single point load of the gears here is my solution:

    The solution to the single tooth loading all these transmissions are experiencing. The motor feeds a planetary reduction with 6 planet gears that output then drives a hyvo chain to the differential. This system would eliminate any single point loads. After that the next thing to fail will be the differential gears.
