I'm running a turbo busa in my '65 bug, mid engine of course.

I did in fact look at GBR stuff. Good product, I'm not questioning that.

For my intended purpose, that set up would be on the weaker side.

I did not go the Toyota route. I advised it becasue it is a great set up, with a better gear selection to taylor to your needs.

I'm into American pigs.

Hey Joel, by any chance....do you have a level-o-gauge in your truck?

You got the first set for free, broke it, and got the second set for free too? You a sponsored rock racer? Cool, good for you.

For the rest of us that have to pay for it, I would avoid the 4.7 no matter if they are new or old. There are mechanical limits to making something so small, strong.

I remember someone selling those on eBay for like 50 bucks a couple of months ago. some Jeweler in NY bought them by mistake "Ring & Pinion" sounds like a type of ring. anyways, sold them cheap and all you need is a spacer to run them on newer diffs.

So you tell me I don't know what the F-ck I am talking about and your posting pictures and you don't even know whats in them? Classic.

Oh, and thanks for putting the SlimJim wrapper in the pic for size reference. It's good to know that a Slim Jim is in fact bigger than a rover 4.7 pinion.

I am not the one stupid enough to think that removing some teeth on a tiny pinion is going to make more than a gnatís tit of difference. No matter what is done to it, until there is a complete breakthrough in materials, itís still a weak ass r+p. Thatís the truth so for you to get all retarded and pissy on here is pathetic.

You want to be an ass to me, rock on. But you know damn well that what I posted is correct. Thanks for posting that new pic next to a series gear set to show us how "big" it is. If you still want to try to tell me I don't know what I am talking about, go to Pirate and see what they have to say about it. See how well you do there.

Keep polishing, bud. Maybe after you break this one you will move onto something you don't have to angrily defend on the internet in order to feel good about.

Man, I've always wanted one of those things. But I could never bring myself to part with the 12 bucks. Of course the one time I actually rolled a truck it wouldn't have helped at all.

LOL. If the truck was upside down, the guage would still read level, wouldn't it?

Indeed. In my case it was on its side. They don't go to 90...

In any event it happened too fast for my impaired reflexes.

I got the one with a picture of a jeep on it in a box of spares that came with my 90. England must be tilted because it reads 10 degrees here when laid flat.

Maxi-Drive gears.

30% $1265
49% $1485

In Australian dollars including GST which is 10%, which you would not need to pay.

So at today's exchange rate for someone in the USA:
30% ($1265/1.10)/1.2361 = $930 plus shipping.
49% ($1485/1.10)/1.2361 = $1092 plus shipping.

Thats what I was thinking about. I am seriously considering this for myself. Great pricing, and it seems to be a good product too. I have no experience with them though.

Dave, I was being a smart ass about those things. I can't stand them, they are the most idiotic usless piece of crap out there. But that's just my opinion.

Buck, I want to buy you a beer.......lol

Yah, got that...

Never really thought about it until you brought it up, but they are kinda useless. Like I said the one time I put my poor old 88 on its side it happened so fast I didn't even have time to clench my buttocks, never mind check some frackin' lev-o-gauge.

I still want one though. Maybe you can pull one out of your employer's trash bin. I promise I won't make you look at it

Re: the Maxi-Drive low range gearset

It sounds like you have to pull your t-case, remove the intermediate gear and send the gear to M.R. Automotive in Australia for modification. I'm not sure if the mod is included in the price nor how long it would take.
Emailed them to find out.
