451, It should be better as it is closer ratio in the gears you use on track. 1st gear will pull better and longer on the street.Is there a price announced yet?
Rebuild kit or full gearbox?
Exchange or outright?
I was thinking they look a lot like the gears in the quaife sequential in my turbo k20, but with a bit of helical to them. That pinion looks serious. Looks very promising. Real good.Awesome! Looks like a similar design to the gearx set in my Honda gear box. Also forged chromoly and WPC treated. 10k miles and no issues. These should kick ass!

Wonder if there will be any gear noise...
Latest update is that we have everything except the input shafts! Expect those in a couple of weeks. I'll be building the output shaft side etc. Additionally, we're looking at some options to offer ISF(Isotropic surface finish) or REM. As we've been investigating different options, it has been quite a journey to separate the Gems from the snake oil. Fortunately, as an engineer, I have a pretty good BS detector since "I want to see data". Additionally, we have several industry veteran engineers to call upon that have decades of experience. In an industry that is filled with anecdotal evidence, it is good to work with people that actually practice the science and theory behind the scenes to call BS on this or that new version of snake oil.
DLC is an add-on coating that provides a very hard, mirror finish. The difficulty with DLC is handling the tolerances of things such as splined parts and then making sure there is no flaking. To be clear, it does seem to be a nice option, however EVEN MORE EXPENSIVE and complicated. Probably won't be pursuing it straight away, as the gain vs. $$ vs complexity doesn't seem as solid in our case as ISF.Fantastic developments!
I wounder how ISF compares to DLC(Diamond-Like Carbon) coating that seems to be all the rage in high performance applications...
Thanks, We're getting there. I need to get the input shafts back first. As I've said before, we're doing a superior product and the costs that go with it.
