Exclamation Gauging demand, MFactory DOHC ZC 3/4 gears.

I will only have MFactory make these once there is enough actual demand. This means I need 10 partially refundable 50% deposits.

3rd and 4th gears for 92+ fitment. Straight-cut gear teeth. Ratios will be close to 1.346 3rd, 1.033 4th. Power rating will be between 400-500whp. Final ratios and power rating will be supplied once the 10 deposits have been gathered and design of the gears has started.

$659.95 shipped in the US 48. Shipping elsewhere will be additional. Deposit is $324.97.

Remaining 50% (plus shipping if applicable) will be due within 7 business days of the 10th deposit being received. If the remaining balance is not paid within 7 business days, there will be a 10% penalty for the remaining balance and your deposit will not longer be refundable.

If there are not enough deposits by 11:59PM ET on February 28th, 2013 the deposits will be refunded minus transaction fees.

I highly suggest you be ready to pay in full when placing your order, this will help against any shock to your wallet should the required 10 deposits come in quicker than expected. If you wish to pay in full instead of a 50% deposit you may do so, the same terms apply for refunds.

To order and secure your gear set PM me with your email address. An invoice will be sent to you which can be paid via Paypal balance, credit or debit card. No Paypal account is needed. If you are a guest and do not have a DSO account, please email me to receive your invoice. [email protected]

You'll definitely be fine, could even use a shorter 5th or FD.

Interesting. Is there a reason they have to be straight cut?

Slightly cheaper to machine and less friction than semi-helical, thus less parasitic power loss and less heat produced.

Not in my opinion. The whine isn't super load and you would have a stock 5th gear for cruising. Don't use the Hans Stuck BMW video as an example of the gear whine (since most do), it is way louder in that vid than it is in real life. It is also relative to throttle. Less throttle will make the whine quieter.

I've done a 13 hour one way (27 hour total) with the straight cut 5th and it didn't bother me. I've done a 21 hour one way with semi-helical 1.000 5th and it bothered me slightly as the exhaust was much louder (race exhaust vs street exhaust on the other straight cut car).

No deposits received yet so deadline moved 2 months. If it doesn't happen by then it will not be considered in the future.

Maybe the demand isn't high enouh because D-series parts havent become old enough to require new replacements.

People most likely are still able to source ZC trans.

"If it doesn't happen by then it will not be considered in the future. "

Idk if thats really fair because you can't predict the demand,

People are always looking for DOHC ZC gear sets and/or gear sets made to handle more power. This is the chance to get both. With how few of the current close gear sets are sold each year I'm not willing to put my own money up to have the ZC gears made like I did with the LSD's and keeping a pre-order open for a long time isn't something I'm going to do again.

Hopefully this works out. If it does I might consider having other ratios made.
