Glitchy Gears

#1
So, I was experimenting with some high-speed engines (The gears get a revolution per second at 1% speed), and they're breaking because the teeth of the gears are glitching into each other as they turn. Does anyone know any fixes for this?

The reason why it's happening is probably because the gears are colliding at such a speed that the physics update rate is unable to keep up and register that they are colliding before the next update takes place, there is a similar phenomena if an object is moving too fast it can go straight through objects, try getting a 30+ power cannon and shoot it at one of the mountains in the level editor, you will notice the cannon ball goes straight through without even slowing down. There is a mod on the steam workshop to increase this update rate but it drastically changes the way everything interacts with each other, it's called "Accurate Physics (Experimental)"
