The internal components are made from EN36 Material as used in racing such as V8 SUPERCAR. The outer cases made from 8620 Chrome-Nickel-Moly steel and the case hardened for long life and improved strength.
The GEARSETS used are HI-PERFORMANCE 8620 Chrome-Nickel-Moly Steel. CNC machined from high-quality forgings to our exacting specifications and then heat-treated to obtain high impact and durability. Then lapped to allow for correct tooth contact and smoothness and for use in the performance market. The 8620 Gearset has proven itself in all forms of motorsport over the past 30 years.
