      If the transmission has dog-style gear engagement than the clutch doesnt need to be used other than to get you moving.

      A very sweet addition, as i work on a race car team that runs purpose built race cars, and also other cars. So i truly understand why you would want this kind of transmission.

        Would such a transmission be streetable? Amazing looking piece!

        What is the expected life-cycle of a unit like that? I have 170,000 miles the factory Getrag box. Will this Sequential box last as long, or is it a race part that requires thorough maintenace every off season?

        Also, I'd imagine it would greatly increase acceleration times due to less times between gears. Any acceleration times to back up that theory?

        Thanks!

          If the roaring gear whine wouldn't drive you crazy first, the gear grinding certainly would. A straight cut 'dogbox' is a racecar item.

                From what I understand the video is from 2002 and it's a 320i owned by Rolf Van Os (VanOs...get it? LOL!) It was raced in the Dutch Supercar Series and puts out about 280hp.

                      Let you know how it works out next week....
                      Declan, can you update us on how this worked out???? What's your take on it??

                      Tough to tell if the gear whine is from the diff or gearbox... whine dose not seem to change in pitch with gear shifts... leads me to think it's diff or at least final drive gear in GB...

                        Yeah....After I made the earlier post I continued to do further research on the topic. Agreed, the gear whine would certainly not be streetable.

                        I guess I am just frustrated with conventional manual boxes. I'd love to have something more precise with milisecond response time between gears to keep the S14 up in her powerband and allow the driver to focus on pure driving. Besides, there is something so damn sexy about a pure sequential box! Alas....seems it is not a viable street/track option.

                          With a lightweight flywheel/clutch assembly, a reworked tranny, and an aftermarket ECU, you would have the capability to flat shift (shift without lifting the gas pedal). That gets you close to a sequential setup, but without the headaches.
