You may have said before, but are the gears in this trans straight cut?
But anyways things are looking sick. Before long you will be building a twin 90mm top mount system. Lol


Fastest camaro in OKC

Nope, they are not straight cut....

Here is directly from the RSG site...

  • All gears and shafts are made of 9310 Alloy Steel
  • The gear train has a 22 degree helix angle for increased strength, less thrust load, and lower operating temperatures
  • All Tranzilla units feature C5 Corvette Triple Cone Synchronizers for ultra smooth shifts
  • Steel 3-4 Shift Fork
  • Solid, billet synchronizer keys
  • All components match fitted, and clearance corrected (blue printed)
  • New OEM bearings
  • Competition, race ready shim package
Bare in mind that this is the first of it's kind in a 5th Gen Camaro Street/Race Car...and OMG, top mount 90's... Jeeeeeze.......

The first one is what I bought, and the next one or two are what I got....

These things are absolutely massive....

Thanks Ivan,

Joe (racer778) is somewhat involved with it as well... He helps out all the time... I think you two know each other...

As for the trans work... I have a thread in the transmission section where we are doing this install.... It's a first for a street/race car... your welcome to follow along with it and offer and ideas you may have...

Well, It's time for a new clutch... mine is looking much worse for the wear....

We pulled the trans, and the flywheel is scarred badly, and it all looks rough... No sense going back in with it the way it looks when we already have the trans out... Dang-it...

now I'm shopping for a suitable clutch for the power range we are looking for without it being an on-off switch....

I'm considering the Mantic Twin and the Street Slayer twin or triple....

As soon as we figure out what to do for a clutch, we will start installing the new Trans....

It doesn't look too problematic, but time will tell...

If you go Street Slayer go triple..the twin was holding up to my car ok but you could tell a triple was really what the car needed. I have no experience with the Mantic setup but the Street Slayer clutch was easily one of the nicest driving clutches I had ever owned.
