Here at Force Fed Engineering we are actively involved in the design and development of a dog box gear set setup for drag racing; The 02m transmission has currently no options for a gear set that is appropriate for the application.
We reached a point this year where we were spending lot of time and communicating with the big companies about making us gears for our race car, liberty, ppg, sqs etc. No one really seemed to understand the necessity for proper gearing for cars with drag racing in mind, so we found someone who will listen.
We are working with a transmission manufacturer that is in the US so there will be no outlandish shipping, exchange rates or issues that have come up with other manufacturers.
We are in the initial stages of development on the vw/audi side of the dog boxes currently with a projected completion date for late march 2010!
This kit is being developed to offer a solution that would withstand ~1000whp, have ideal gear ratios for drag racing and shift at high rpm, where the stock gearing cannot.
This gear kit will utilize a factory ring and pinion since they have not been an issue, this will keep cost down as well.
Our kit will be complete new gears, 1-4, selectors/hubs, Billet Shift forks and at this time we are discussing a billet input shaft with a provision for a pilot bearing to further eliminate inherent issues with harmonics.
We will also be developing billet shift fork upgrades for stock selector assemblies for people who are not having issues that some of the race cars are having with high rpm engagement and reliability.
Early pricing puts us in the $5000 range for the gear sets.
Some highlights are lengthened first gear and a very low rev drop to suit tremendous whp cars that may not have the revs to support a large powerband.
We will be the only distributor for these gearsets.
These gears will cover all 02m, 02q, and other synonomous variants.
Models covered will be:
mk1,2,3,4 swap 02m
2003 20th ae
2004 GLI 1.8t
All 24v VR6 equipped vehicles
TT non haldex 02m only
