    fs: TRD close ratio gear set C52/C56 transmission

    a friend of mine is selling some stuff, he wanted me to post this up... please email him direct with any questions...
    __________________________________________________ _____________________________

    Good Day All,

    Recently I managed to pick up a Rare TRD Gearset Made for an AE92/AE101/AE111 #2 from a friend whom Took an extreme loss by ordering the wrong part # Since when you order Direct
    from TRD and part is made to order it can't go back

    The oringinal cost for this part was 280,000 yen or about 3,310.00 CAD this does not include our 14% taxes.

    I have seen a set of these particular gearset in action, and they make a huge difference, as the gear ratios are smallar, however you lose top end speed, but you get there in a hurry ! It is good
    for those autocrossing, or drag racing

    I picked this up and Intended to use it in My Mk1 Mr2 Tuned N/A however the engine blew / now I'm going JDM SC'D and the gearset would not work well with this combo. The item is still in its box
    plastic bags and all never used.

    Therefore I'm selling this for 1,100 CAD Firm offers can be made however must be reasonable considering how much this item would normally cost you.

    E-mail me at Project_mr2@hotmail.com if any questions, and pics
    or e-mail me with peeps whom might be interested purchasing it.

    .

    am I seeing it right? 1:1 5th gear? Talk about being buzzy at highway speeds. What we really need is a close ratio 6 speed box. Yum.
    I am Randy's desire to go faster.

    Yeah, the TRD gears are the bomb. Anybody who has driven with a TRD close ratio gear set knows how much faster the car is. The cool thing is that this gearset for $1100 is cheaper than the ae86 5.375 final drive set. If you wanted the same setup in the ae86 you'd have to buy the C/R trans gear set and the high ratio final drive, and get it all built up. You'd be looking at around $5k (retail) to have that for an ae86. For the aw11/ae92 you could do it for less than $2k.

    Yes, you'll lose top speed, but the acceleration is awesome!

    How often do you drive around at 200+ kph anyways? Me, I like to squirt around at speeds up to 150kph, which you could easily do with this gearset.

    bump for an awesome product at a crazy price.

    Someone convince me that I should get this. Could I stay in Super Stock for auto-x or would it bump me to Street Prepared?

    .

    Yeah, but I also tend to drive around Out of town events where I cruise at 110-140 all the time.

    I'm not a fan of revving that high for 3-6 hours on end.
    A Corolla RX1 Six speed would be most ideal. *sigh*

    OR! I could just trailer the car to and from events! Yay! I wish.

    Bump to Street prep where any tranny and any diff is allowed.

    Thanks Randy. I'm out, I'm not ready to make the jump to SP. Lots of other things to do first to maximize where I'm at.
