I wish!

Here is something to think about

"5-speed synchro box, ZF transaxle model 5DS-25-2
This gearbox has a custom-made sequential shifting mechanism that is pneumatically operated and computer controlled."

Re: I wish!

Great idea, but that box would need to be modified due
to it's overall length. It would never fit in a 40 as is.
Was there any mention of how much $$$ for all the sequential goodies?
ZF's are expensive to begin with!

Re: I wish!

No, no mention of cost, I saw it when browsing one day, and thought it was interesting, with some people using ZF transmissions. I know I could never afford one....!

Thats the bell, got to go to class!

Re: I wish!

Bill,
You can get a Quaife sequential gearbox for under 10K, but then you'd need to cough up for the bellhousing as well [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
