I wouldn't think it would be dangerous... but you will be spinning one tire like crazy... LOL!Beyond said:and another question, is gears without t-lok a really stupid idea? i may do it down the road, but i don't have the money for it now. yes, i know i would save money doing both at once, but ignore that.
a guy said this on another forum, talking about me actually (a friend of mine asked who would win.. my car or his)
"gears and no t-loc, talk about peelout from hell, im leaning towards the 03, because launching with no t-loc and gears is going to be difficult as hell, without a t-loc his gears may be costing him time in the 1/4 mile.....all i can say is the guy in the 00 better be a **** good driver, because he has alot against him as far as launching goes...."
is that very true?
and is gears without t-lok dangerous? (lol)
yeah, you'll feel a big difference.Beyond said:also is this true (the part about gears w/o t-lok)
"i saw u post a few days before that u were getting gears. u also said that u were ONLY getting gears without the t-loc. so the performance u are getting now and the reason its not as huge as all the other people's is because u dont have ur t-loc installed. the gears and t-loc work together and the t-loc will make a big impact when u put it on down the road. it will be dramasticly different because ur power will be distributed to both wheels instead of mainly one. so u will get the desired results as soon as the t-loc is in."
also, do you feel a difference after installing gears in a 99-04?
can you link me to the detroit locker? what's better about it?kscoyote said:yeah, you'll feel a big difference.
you can get along without the t-lok, (the solution is simple, let up on the gas!) but having t-lok (or even better, a detroit locker) is better than gears.
You should already be able to spin the wheels with the 3.27 gears, people spinning without traction is how I beat a LOT of giants in my 68.
My gearing in the '68 was 3.27 (I got 25 mpg with the 3 speed auto!!)

will the richmond gears pictured be fine?
hmmm ... so if you were me, would you put the richmonds in, or ship them back and spend more for frpps? i bought the richmonds off of a friend who decided not to put them in because he didn't want to void his warranty, and it saved me shipping costs.kscoyote said:http://www.detroitlocker.com/newprod.htm
no clutches to wear out.
Some people have complained about gear whine from teh richmonds, and they used to be a lot more expensive.
The Richmonds are more expensive.Beyond said:hmmm ... so if you were me, would you put the richmonds in, or ship them back and spend more for frpps? i bought the richmonds off of a friend who decided not to put them in because he didn't want to void his warranty, and it saved me shipping costs.
alright, thanks.kscoyote said:The Richmonds are more expensive.
I wouldn't worry about it.
The whine generally goes away after they're broken in.
I wouldn't worry about it. some gear whine is normal.Beyond said:alright, thanks.
i thought the frpps were more expensive.. he bought the richmonds for 180 shipped and i can't find the frpps for that anywhere.. hmph, maybe he got a really good deal :cooldude:
but speaking of whining, my car whines noticeably now. please, PLEASE don't tell me this is another problem :what:
