Anyone else seen this?

Using the case of an auto box seems a nice idea - looks like there's a lot more space inside for gears :) Seems a bit pricey, though... Bloody £32,500 for a gearbox!?!?

[edit] why the eff does it show 4 pics? I only put two in... *Confused*

Strikes me that theres a lot of space in that casing for a bike set up including drum in the front of the casing, and look at how well supported the pinion is.

For anybody that reads the article. The ebay auction is for the car.

With gearbox fitted = £32k
With a JACK KNIGHT INVOLUTE GEARBOX = £17.5k

Hence the the box on its own is about £15k which is just daft.

I run a supercharger and I don't care the TB is on the wrong side.

prob a daft question but..... does this mean that you would have to use an auto block as well?

And an auto subframe?

I wonder how much performance gain it achieved?

auto blocks are the same as manual ones, they just don't have some of the oil feed drillings.

That said, auto cases seem to carry a fair weight penalty

Is the case so much heavyer? Or is it more the internals & torque converter? :) I would guess a lot of the auto stuff has been removed. Same for width... With a manual clutch & cover, is it so much wider? :)

I've never touched a auto gearbox, nor have I ever seen one in the flesh :)

Its like why??? unless there is some race class where you have to use original parts... and engine that this will give a definitive advantage, but if it does and it scrapes through the rules they would just change the rules...to ban it...
