After the weekend of motorsport it has come apparent to me that my stock standard
RB25 turbo Gearbox is not going to take the 700hp i keep throwing at it.
So what i am after is options for the future.
Must be 6 sped sequential, dog , 1 overdrive.
Now i have sent emails of to:
Holinger : 22k sequential dog box, 6 speed, NEW
: Will cost around 2K to convert ex supercar box to fit behind RB
Albins : 26k sequential transaxle is all they can offer apparently.
Modena : 18k MV8S 6 speed, not a bad looking thing, remote shifter, bolt on. NEW
PPG : Brushed me aside, said there Helical set should be fine.
Quaife : QBE69G around 14K landed
OS giken : 14k they have the OS 88, gtr box and have been told
with mods to rear housing it can work 2wd no probs. Anyone confirm this ?
Tractive RD90 : Around 17G landed
TTI : 13G landed
Japan : Can get OS etc for same costs as us here, Can get quaife for 9000
If you guys can think of any others please let me know
Cheers in advance lads

Apparently V8 Supercar teams are bashing down the doors at Holinger, begging them to make a box for them. But they are not approved to supply........... Yet!

Also the Albins transaxle is a brand new unit, with low cost and low mass in mind. It was never going to be as stout as a Hollinger 6 speed with 10+ years development behind it.

i do remember one holing'r available recently, but had no reason to ask, as the price tag is beyond my requirement.

Both are using a "car of the future" type design where just about any panel can be changed to make a Ford or Holden or Nissan etc. However the NZST (supertourers) have a control engine/gearbox - well the whole car really so a Ford is powered by the same Chev engine as the Holden etc.
The NZV8 are different as they have a Ford 4 valve engine at 5.0l all alloy and the Holden has a GM engine 6.7l all alloy but 2 valve both making around the same HP 480 that is.
So maybe track down one of the NZV8 team (only 5 or 8 cars I think - most moved to the NZST as the NZV8 cars were not getting built quick enough or whatever it got all political and who really cares all just taxi's racing anyway - I like to see all kinds of Marques racing in real cars that you can purchase not kit cars that will never been sold the public..but that is just me)

I have heard good things thus far.

Well this is the company I have gone with for my 6 speed sequential box.
After many conversations with different manufactures these guy seem to be on the
same page as me.

Yes the gearbox from TT industries is on its way. It currently is occupying a spot on the customs floor at Sydney.
Paid my import fees on Friday so should be at my shop this week.
Pics to come
