I would be carefull as to what you replace the gears with. Make sure the shafts 
and the motors can handle the extra weight that a metal gear would present. I 
might sugggest usig a gear made of Delrin instead of metal, unless it is a 
lightweight metal like aluminum. Small Parts Inc in Miami has a nice selection of 
Delrin gears that might fit. 

Delrin offers more strength and durability over that of nylon which is commonly 
used plastic for cheap gears.
