Thanks. I have a quote from Clarke for a trans with WPC treatment, Quaife LSD, and shorter gears for $5,400.
Just curious, why do you want shorter gears? I find them too short already for my power level, I wish first was maybe a tad longer :(


@OP I'm interested in pricing, probably don't have it in the budget though.

I also want longer gears. I wish 1st was longer and 2nd too so our 0-60MPH times would be representative of the cars performance. It gets canned a lot for the 0-60MPH but its a gearing issue. The care has plenty of torque to easily row those 1st 2 gears with proper ratios.

Agreed, first gear is almost completely useless :/

Mine is a track car, would love to have a 3/4/5 that absolutely rip through the power curve.

Yup, 3.55 gears would work awesome on the Fist . In Forza, it's the ratio I use as default on the ST for Nordschleife setup. Good use of powerband in third fourth and fifth, super smooth.

Stock gearing is fine for the stock tune, but I agree, as torque increases longer gears in 1st and 2nd would be nice.

Would he have any interest in installing the M-Factory LSD into my car? Assuming he's relatively local?
Yeah he’s about an hour north of Atlanta. I can text you his number.

Cool. He must be pretty close to me then. I've been waiting on my brother to have time for this LSD install through most of 2021. Tired of waiting.

Feel free to shoot his number my way and I'll reach out this week.
