Andrew said he'd install my free set for free.
Free parts and free labor, and I'll scam gas money for the 4 hour trip from Micah. I heart being me!
Sweet, sell 6 sets whether they be dogboxes or syncro'd sets and ill give you a free one
Im going to give Andrew a call next week and chat with him.
By doing a spur gear for the first two gears those will take the brunt torsional forces and keep the load forces axial within the shaft. Then switching to helical gears 3-5(stronger than a straight cut or spur gear) for all the loading during racing, combined with the weight savings from the five speed.
Should make for a gear box that will address ALL the weak points and improve the overall performance within the 5MT Subaru drivetrain.
Keep in mind that we will be increasing the input and output shaft diameters and decreasing runout. Therefore the experience of "twist/flex" between gearing should be nill to none.
The Subaru Gears provided by EMCO will have the same services/procedures/materials/treatments, that any other gear albeit a DP, SCCA, Dempsey Racing, NASCAR, IRL, ECT, gear would get. I know, I keep reiterating myself but I can't stress enough that this is BIG TIME!!
Get the word out and lets get these out there!
Look for these at the 2013 SEMA/Subiefest event. Im in the process of doing a cutout on a 5MT case to showcase the gear set with some "XXXX" Diffs!
The biggest thing going to be, is playing with the ratios. added strength and kick ass powerband coupled with a lightweight bulletproof gearbox.....
