Some hi end nascar gears are lightened up a whole lot and this is ok for their use but not as good if you ever used the gears for dragging especially if using slicks on a preped launch pad at the strip. This is just a guess by me but Id think the heat treat would be more to absorb impact than for long life or quietness much like how pro drag gears are made.
