IS there a metal-geared distributor for the 200q20v?  I've seen folks 
talking about having someone manufacture a replacement metal gear for the 
plastic one, but I've never seen someone report that a specific 
metal-geared distributor is available.  I'd be up for a group purchase just 
to have one on hand.
