Re: ZZ4 distributor gear

I called Summit and this is what they sent me via email (good service):

"The gears on the Summit branded distributors are a hardened steel alloy, specifically; nitro carburized 1144. This is the exact same material/process that is used by both General Motors and Ford on their OEM distributor gears and is compatible with the drive gears on both the flat tappet and hydraulic roller camshafts"

Can anyone refute this to be a concern?
