NEW WINE -> OLD WINE SKINS !
Not sure why racers continue to put their hard earned money into gear kits and then wonder why they break?
The OEM gear case was designed for a couple of hundred horsepower, going to the shopping mall and cruising on the highway with your family. They were never intended to be used on the track with the rigor and vigor that racing brings. When you force 200%, 300% or 400% more torque through the case than it was designed for; torsional twist takes care of the eventual destruction. It doesn’t matter how big or wide you make the gears & shafts, or what size bearings you shoe horn in, it usually ends in tears...
There are reasons why our gear cases are CNC’d out of 7075-T6 Billet - and contrary to what some competitors say, it’s not about the bling factor.
Ohhh, a gear kit is cheaper they say...really? Do the maths on what a couple of breaks really cost.. the weekend, entry fees, transport, accommodation, food and drinks for the team plus the cost of pulling the box out, repairing it and reinstalling it again, and praying it won’t happen again.
HOPE ISN’T A WINNING STRATEGY !
This is one of the reasons why HGT don’t make gear- kits for OEM cases.
If you want to go racing you need a proper Race Gearbox that’s built for the job and won’t let you down.
HGT Precision Sequential Gearboxes are built to get the job done, are reliable and affordable.

Finally its here, the new reinforced gear kit from Speedtek Auto Racing Parts.
Must admit it is with mixed feelings of service from their side.
Was promised a 3 week production and it ended in 7 weeks instead with a little too many excuses that wasent quite right but let it be - we have it now and hope it works like a dream!
We hope to be able to recommend them and the kit when we get it installed and tested next season 🙂
NEWS!!! After we broke our Z32 gearbox at DHB - Danmarks Hurtigste Bil we bought a used one from UK to hopefully use the rest of the season but we knew it would not last for the twin plate clutch and all that clutch kicking so we are happy to announce that we made a great deal with Speedtek Auto Racing Parts in Australia on the Helicat gear kit for the VG30/RB25 transmission to take a lot more punishment then the OEM gears.
So we hope that it will perform well in our S13 😎😍 #gearkit#transmission#upgrade#power#drifting#gogo#z32#vg30dett#240sx#200sx#jdm#nissan#denmark 🇩🇰 #delintetires#drifter

🇩🇪 Ostern in Marocco, das heisst Zeit für eine grosse Auslegeordnung. 57 Gegenstände und Essen für 7 Tage. Das Leben wird einfach und spartanisch. Es fehlt noch was Wichtiges, merke ich gerade. Was kann es wohl sein?
🇬🇧 Reducing my gear to the max. No poles, no cooking kit, no spare clothes. 57 items and food for 7 days. Without the long racing mode and the required items I could probably reduce my kit by another 15 items. One important item is missing - which one?
Everything is a story. That doesn’t mean, however, that every story is well told. Just as many people can cook, there’s a difference between slapping together a grilled cheese sandwich and finessing a five-star meal.
