  1. advise vr6t 4motion gearbox

    Not for long journeys unless the stereo is loud. They whine like a touring car. I went with diesel final drives in mine, 1st 35, 2nd 74, 3rd 110 etc, on paper will top out at over 200mph in 6th!
  2. advise vr6t 4motion gearbox

    Sounds like the torque bent the shaft so the 4th gear came away a bit and stripped the gear, I read somewhere that it can take 10 ton before it bends with a solid insert it will take 30! i had a quaiffe gear set before and when I spoke to them the the gears are no stronger than standard, that was the semi cut one not the straight though. Bloody noisy as well! good luck. s

I hope to run 550-600, if it was more I would look to shot peening and superfinishing and cryo treatment. I used Gas'n'gears in wales, known as HotGolf on the gti forum, top man! let me know how you get on s
