My high school just finished competing at the Kansas city competition with our 15 lb robots and three of our four teams weapon gearboxes striped out completely after 2-3 good hits. We are using Tacon 1/10 scale brushless motors from hobbypartz on 4:1 gear boxes from bane bots. Anyone have a better gear box or solution?

I would have to have more information about the exact setup of your robot, but with the word " hit" i would assume you are running something that is spinning.  If it is spinning, I would best solution is to remove the gearbox.  Run the motor to the weapon using a pulley on the weapon motor and one on the weapon. You can change the sizes of the pulleys to adjust the ratio of the weapon speed. 

I say I need more info because you may have some awesome new weapon that would benefit from this set up that I have never seen.

If you are not breaking stuff then you are not learning......
