At first i wanted but it broke that easy but had some issues that needed addressing, then i though would be nice but never hit that due to maxing out cc injectors.. This was at around bhp but a snapped cam ended that engine.. Now the standard gearbox has held up well with over bhp and some crazy launches that resulted in snapped drive shafts and one prop shaft. The plan was to change the ratio for higher top speeds but that plan has changed now due to a limited gearboxes out there with the ratios i like.
I found that with over bhp i could spin some of the wheels due to not having proper diffs selector forks are a weak point as we all know Other issues the 02M has is 4th gear this is where this mod comes in Quoted for another web site the above mod is for The biggest weakness of the 02m gearboxes is the 4th gear.
There is the risk that with running high engine torque the input shaft vibration device and the shaft on the opposite side pushes the gear wheel pair off. The 4th gear does no longer runs correctly engaged. The result is that the 4th gear can break off! The transition support works as follows: Via an attached external aluminum housing is a brass mandrel pressed by means of a bolt against the shaft, there is formed a sliding bearing between the brass pin and the input shaft.
The preload is adjustable. Ive also done this modification myself.. There is a danger that in high torque the input shaft unit in motion pushes the shaft characterized by the opposing shafts, and thus the gear wheel pair of the 4th gear is no longer correctly reciprocally running.
Consequence: the 4th gear breaks off! Our full Billet shaft functions as follows: By pressing a special steel core in the input shaft we reduce vibrations and the gears run into each other much cleaner. I also did some research and found out that the input shaft is a tube that has a wall thickness of 4mm, this tube would start to bend at 10 tones, filling it in like above will make it a lot stronger so will start to bend at 30 tones of pressure.
Next modification is the end plate.. This can become a major problem especially on vehicles with high torque figures. The problem is caused by high amounts of vibration being transferred through the gears. These vibrations can eventually lead to cracks in the casing and in worst cases, can break away completely leaving a gaping hole in the end of the casing.
Usually this destroys all the internals rendering the whole gearbox scrap.
