About $170-$200 per ring and pinion.

Of course my WT is for the Crossfire.

Thanks for the order today Anthony, your rear end should be done and hopefully shipped back out to you by the end of the week. In shipment I should say...

Back to the last few posts...

Stangslayer, ring and pinions cost anywhere from 175-650 a set, mustangs, sure 175 depending on the housings, but have you seen the pricing for the Lc/Lx? They go for 600-650(Richmond Gear). These sets that we're working on will be close to that per set with 2 completely different sets needed per vehicle. Manufacturing cost and tooling cost on these units isn't cheap by any means, try almost 50k in tooling costs combined for front and rear sets, 25k~ or so each...these haven't been done, they aren't just your off the shelf rings and pinions, we've messed with a ton of combos just to try it out and see what we can come up with to no avail. On top of all that, we have to get a minimum of 200 units made of each to make it happen, trust me when I say this, we've asked for 100 of each or even 50 each but not a single manufacturer will entertain that.

Has anyone tried contacting Dana spicer about gears? I will soon be direct with them maybe I can ask around. They make a 3.73 for these things I can't imagine they tooled up a whole new set of gears only for a ill over 14k vehicles in a 5 yr span

It's not Dana who'll be making these gear sets that we're having made. Already tried them, they would take forever to make from Dana so we moved on and the price point wasn't so nice for these through them.

Chris
Skip
the both of you equall advice,
So for my hero .62 (1km) races im nearly out of gear now,, i reached 154.5 mph and as i understand it ill be out if ratio at 173mph,, he he he well with the 419 going in soon i beleive ill be needing 3.55 to crack my 300kph barrier, im sure ill do it with 1000rwhp,
but maybe 3.2 for the best of all worlds.

I NEED TO BLITZ THE PLANS OF COMPETITORS NEXT YEAR,, i heard willal racing will be bringing out there 1000hp r35gtr next year, this year their 800hp JUUST beat my 870hp jeep by .8 second,, i really wanna take out the event,, in a big way i dont care if i have to take out a loan,,,
MY PLAN ,, 1200 engine hp..
3.2 gears,, should see my 300kph easy!!!!

any advice ?? oh yeah,, i forgot ,, im crazy i know but speed is addictive and the jeep flys as straight as an arrow even when a front wheel pops off the ground at 200kp plus
hahahahahaha weird sensation,,

I hope a solution comes up soon. I fear without a gear change i will be wandering back to the import cars again. Except it will be a gtr. Having to do 60 mph to get decent mpg is just futile. I dont like it, the jeep doesnt like it. My fun is on back mounttain roads with 70-80 mph turns. The jeep loves it. Gas guzzling to be expected and its fun. Now drivin to work at 70mph just cruising and the mpg is the same as lasts nights rompings. Not so much fun.

Still contemplating keeping the jeep and buy the r35. But i don think the jeep would get used anymore.

Please we need gears.
