Performance Transmission modifications

Low ratio gearboxes,slip differentials and performance gearboxes

Getting the power from the engine to the wheels is the job of the transmission and this is an area where a lot of cars can lose power.

Converting a DMF to solid flywheel

We look at the benefits and disadvantages of solid flywheel conversions from a DMF and help you decide which is right for you.
