New from Swiftune - Our latest design of Roller Bearing Drop Gear Set available now for all Mini applications
New Tooth Design: The tooth form has been designed to greatly reduce friction. All previous gears have used the original Special Tuning design which had a stubby tooth. This caused a high single point of pressure as the gears meshed which increased friction. As you can see from our picture, the latest design allows the teeth to mesh on a smooth ramp; the benefits are reduced friction and increased life.
New Material: We have upgraded the material to an aerospace specification. This increases reliability and service life.
New Roller Bearing: Our latest unique design bearing gives 100% greater side support to reduce loading. The new design firmly holds the idler bearing with a two part pinion that is bolted together. This system replaced the two existing idler bearings that are fitted to standard gear casings.
More benefits: Of course all these gears sets feature straight cut teeth and the new roller bearing idler which removes the need for the gear case and clutch cover bearings. The primary gear features a bronze top hat bush and unique floating inner bush with a retaining clip thus eliminating standard bush failure. As ever, they have proven motorsport reliability.
Designed with the best possible gear correction and least rolling resistance, they available for all Mini applications whether 1275, 998, A series or A plus. We have covered every option but if you need help choosing please contact us.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a completely new set of re-designed gears and as such they are not compatible or interchangeable with any other earlier drop gear sets. You cannot mix and match these gears.
