And I, for one, have always pondered why people go through such enormous 
efforts to change the system anyway?   The plastic gears are the weak link in 
the system, but once the gears have been replaced with brass gears, there's 
absolutely nothing wrong with the way the stock system works (assuming it's 
set up properly with no binding etc.)

Sure, some of the alternative setups are faster.   But do you really need a 
glass guillotine in your door?   If it takes two seconds to raise the 
window with the stock setup, and the modified setup can do it in 1.2 seconds, so 

I just don't get it...somebody explain it to me?
