Rinus did drags with his 020 running +450whp and full slicks, granted it had a LSD.

Depends a lot how you use it. Just saying.

Send a PM to Throttles here on the forum. He is a gearbox genius. I am not certain but I think he is running an 020 gearbox with modified internals and a locked diff in his methanol fed 8v N/A monster drag car.

The rear gearbox upgrade mount is R800.00 and the other 3 polyurethane bushes add up to about R300.00

I will bet money that Maranoux is the foremost gearbox expert on this forum. Ive never seen anything like it. I take him a busted vr6 box and a tdi box. 3 hours later I leave with a hybrid tdi vr6 box. He builds them blind folded in his sleep while simultaneously satisfying two pairs of Siamese twins.
