Seeing the GV units just made me wonder about that. Does the 2nd Gv overdrive the already overdriven output of the 1st (compounding the OD) or are they 2 different ratios that will be used one at a time? Cool build! Can't wait to see this one run!
Heavier than Black Current Lighter than DC Plasma. Not sure yet(don't want to give it away yet). A lot more steel in the rear to take some real torque. DC Plasma is a 28 spline CV Shaft system, this is 3-4 times beefier than that.
Lenco does not make a shiftable overdrive and Up til about a week ago, I had called Lenco several times and they have said no fixed overdrive units either only reducers.
I have just found someone there that said they think they can run their reducer backwards with custom female spline couplers. I am waiting to hear on a final price. The idea would be permanent overdrive and all lenco reducers like a normal transmission.
The photoshop picture above I would target 1.56:1, 1:1, 1:0.78, 1:0.60
1:0.50 overdrive on front would be 3, 1.5, 1.25, 1
