If it were my money, I'd only make 1 set first, and then hit the GO button on the machine again when I know everything is cool.
That's just part of the fun with this stuff.


I would definately be making 1 set in Billet first to prove out design.
That's how we developed our Cross-drive/Transmission/Transfer case for our latest truck.

We worked with http://www.albinsgear.com.au/ here in Australia, on developing prototypes, right through to production items with cast housings.
They are a huge supplier to the US, to Weddle etc.

Ivan Albins started off racing Bajas back in the day and they do alot of one off/small jobs, sounds crazy logistically but might be worth contacting them.
Happy to help where I can if you need a man on the ground. They're only 70 miles from here.
