Just stumbled over this, pretty interesting on the strength of gearsets. Even though it's HP set's it still applies to regular gearsets.

interesting article! one thing i didnt see mentioned that i spoke to gear works about last year is the amount of "sliding" or shearing happens on some gear sets. on a 9", the numerically higher the gear set, the more angled the teeth are and the more they have to slide against eachother. This sliding supposedly breaks down the oil and creates a lot of heat and wear on the gear making it not last as long no matter how many teeth the pinion has.
