6 Speed Gearsets

Anyone got more details yet? http://www.daveminter.co.uk/ (see Whats New)

I can hear my cheque book wincing!Just got back from a week in Menorca - everyone still going to Oulton next Tuesday??Giles

What about watchin the Lotus racing at Oulton this weekend???Theres a few of us going now!!!JOHN

sounds like it all comes to those who wait, a UCR gearbox and a useable cruising gear…now who wants to buy a set of CR gears?Anyone know how much?

Could the minter setup be the same as this: http://www.quaife.co.uk/index2.htm Has anyone driven this setup? SJP

What is the “dog engagement” box???ThanksRoy

quote:Originally posted by Roy W. Olivier:What is the “dog engagement” box???It’s a gearbox with the normal ‘H’ shift pattern, but not using syncro’s. It’s using a pins-and-hole setup which will grab immediately once you select a gear.Could theoretically be used on the road, but it’s not advised… Gear engagement is rough and clunky, puts a lot of strain on the input shaft and they tend to wear quickly.Biggest advantage is that it allows you to shift quicker as it cuts out the time a normal box uses for the synchro’s to engage fully.Also… A dog-box, unlike a sychromeshed one, also allows you to drop from 5th to 2nd at full speed… Potentially very ouch for both gearbox and engine.Reason for the existance of a box like this is usually regulations in certain race-classes, which forbid real sequential gearboxes. (and cost of course…)Bye, Arno.

quote:Originally posted by Roy W. Olivier:What is the “dog engagement” box???I understrand it usually means that 1st is off-set down and to the left on its own (a dog-leg). You then select 2nd like you would normally go from 2nd to 3rd. I believe this is so the gears you would use on the track (2 to 5 in a 6 speed) are all in an H pattern with just vertical movements between 2nd and 3rd and 4th and 5th.Obviously on a track with mainly 3rd to 4th movements it is less good!Somebody please correct me if I’m wrong.Ian [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/smile.gif[/image][This message has been edited by IDG (edited 24 May 2002).]

[QUOTE]Originally posted by IDG: Well there you go, I was speaking a pile of pants! [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/grin.gif[/image]Don’t think you were. Dog engagement is pretty much as you say, the different shift pattern arrangement is described as a ‘dog leg first shift pattern’.Paul.

quote:Originally posted by IDG:Well there you go, I was speaking a pile of pants!Not quite Ian! What you are referring to is often called a ‘dog-leg first’, and is standard on a number of road cars (like Lambos [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/grin.gif[/image]). However, Arno was correct WRT dog boxes, although Arno didn’t mention that you need to be pretty damn good at heel-and-toe gear changes not to wreck the box. I saw the consequences of a guy missing a gear big time on a dog box once and there were no teeth left on a number of the cogs!

How did you get that in there Paul, it wasn’t there a second ago?! [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/wink.gif[/image]

Roy:I think ‘we’ also call a dog engagement setup “straight cut” gears, but I could be over simplifying things a little. SJP

No, straight cut gears are another matter. This means the angle that the teeth are cut into the gears. Most road cars have the teeth cut in a helical pattern which tends to be a lot quieter. This is because the teeth engage at one end first, and then the contact area spreads along the length of the tooth. With straight cut gears, the teeth are cut straight across the gears. This means that each tooth engages instantaniously which makes a bit of a noise.
