What does "300km of SS usage" mean?

I'd imagine autocross racing?

I don't think this is a legit ad anyhow, I emailed to get more info and it was kicked back as not a valid address. Anyone know what "2500€" is in dollars? I have no idea what that symbol means.

Somebody on this forum got scammed on an SADEV box. Maybe a fishing expedition. Caveat emptor.

Quaife sells a bunch of different FWD 6-speeds 32G and 34G. 34G is stronger.

Otherwise sounds interesting. The price is veery good.

sure sounds and looks like he is using clutch to shift, which points to it not being a dog box
No it doesn't: dog vs. synchro has nothing to do with the clutch.

I see clutch use only during downshifts for the most part and actually surprised to see no rev matching (double clutching). Usually this is required with dog boxes, but I imagine the closeness of the gear ratios and the speed and authority by with he is executing them there is no need.
Nice box for the money, I wanted to convert my PG1 to dog engagement this year but the gearset alone from Quaife was 6k!! I figured I'd stick with straight cut gears with syncros for a while longer..:p

I don't even use the clutch to up shift with my dog box on my bike... Have you ever raced with a dog box?

Bikes don't have dog boxes, they are full sequential, and yes I have driven a race car with a dog box. If you review my last post I never said anything about using the clutch on up shifts (which are easy to do clutchless on a dog box) I was commenting on his clutchless down shifts which are usually harder to pull off especially without at least a rev matching throttle blip while the transmission is in neutral.
