Sequential Gearbox and Lancia Beta twincam

Post by Paul Eustace » Fri Sep 15, 2017 9:28 pm

Has anyone any views or experience of using a sequential gearbox with a Guy Croft 8V engine?

I have a Lancia Beta twin cam in my Lancia Stratos replica. It desperately needs a LSD. I will spend £1,000 on a Gripper LSD and refurbishing a Lancia Beta gearbox will cost at least £1,500 to renew synchromesh hubs and bearing.

A Quaife or an Elite sequential gearbox looks like good fun.

The option of fitting a close ratio gear set in the Lancia gearbox appears to be about as expensive as a sequential gearbox....

Most awfully sorry Paul, I have no prior exp of this in transverse..

I think I can say with some certainty that consultation with Quaife would work well, I have always found them helpful and friendly and uber-professional. And - better still - they do know actually who I am!!

Which is by way of saying that if you mention my name you are unlikely to be met with, "Guy WHO??.."

Very sincerely,
