Anyone upgrade to the carbon fiber landing gear? Did a couple of high speed landings when my engine wouldn't idle down and the axles and aluminum gear bent out of shape on a couple of bounces and a sharp turn to avoid the rough. Any down side to the carbon fiber gear?

They break instead of bending.

Order a heavy duty carbon gear from graph tech, much stronger than the stock carbon fiber gear. It does cost a bit more but well worth it, plus it's made in the good ole USA.
