This is is the start if the 3rd season on this trans and it has been working flawlessly.
Also failed to mention, it has the race pump.
Thx for the inputs guys, I almost got it out today, will be -out tomorrow for sure, I'll let ya'll know what I find.

Thx again, Cp

Well guys it was the plantaries, I crumbled them suckers good.

Called Marco at Abruzzi racing and he qouted me a price of $175 plus shipping for the 1.76's gear set or $900 for the "better" straight cut 1.80's.

He said same thing as alot of you that at my HP level I'm pushing it with 176's but that he wouldnt be afraid to run them again, said they have about a 1/2 year life cycle in race trim so he said it was time for them to go anyway, no biggie. I had 2 full seasons on them.


For now I'm gonna low ball it and go with the 1.76's so I can get back to racing and save up and get the 180's later on.

He uses TSI stuff

I think BTE wants him to become a dealer he's been up in the air on it.

What gear set you selling for $799


Dave- hope he does not do it. There is a reason why BTE prices dropped. Ever since they made the move with production 3-4 years ago the quality of the gear set has greatly decrease. A lot of guys that were all about the BTE stuff have gone other routes.
