Sup my people's! Sorry it's been awhile so I have another question, so since in paranoid and had severely painful tranny experiences in the past. I want to know if I can do just a first and second gear upgrade, like ra first and second and stock 3-5? I'm asking this because I can't seem to find anyone that can sell the ra gears separate? :wiggles: :ugh:

Are you looking for different ratios or additional strength? RA gearset is more of a ratio upgrade than strength.

1st, 2nd, and reverse are all part of the main shaft, so you would just be replacing that. And like EJ said, RA gears aren't really much stronger, just much shorter. If you want stronger gears go with Albins, PPG, or just do a 6-speed swap.

Ok well the gears u sold me are great I just wanted to reinforce 1st and 2nd to ease my worries I was hoping to avoid the 5000 dollar six speed swap. Since I've already invested so much already

Ironically, the shorter ratios of the RA gearset makes the gearset more durable :tongue:

Everyone is forgetting about the legacy GT gears. They're stronger than those RA gears. And there are quite a few of the bugeye and blobeye owners that have done LGT 1,2, and WRX 3,4,5.

That's basically what I'm running. Mine are the JDM STi 5MT gears that have been cryo treated, but when I checked the part number before installing it turned out to be the same part number for USDM LGT gears.




Of course now I'm in the middle of project "murder transmission".. so I'll be in the market for helical PPGs and stronger front and rear diffs soon.
