    Pretty cool shit!!!!!

    Wonder if one of you engineer types could tell us how much power we are probably losing through an extra set of gears????Β  Maybe we should put together a lower geared trans than I have been running the last few years??Β  I have a 3.88 in it now.. that needs rebuilt.. I have a 3.44 that I think I will put in the pamper…Β  But maybe a 4:12 set up would be more appropriate with reducs x3?

    I’ve seen so many redux boxes that have let loose from the spring plate, I’d be concerned about the AL as well.Β  Are the mounting holes for the spring plates inserted?Β  You’ll have WAY more torque on those mounting bolts as well with the axle being mounted further away from the drive axle.Β  The lever is moved further from the fulcrum point.

     

    You might even consider drilling some locating pins though the spring plate and into the redux box to aid in keeping them from rotating.Β  Hardened hardware, lock washers and red Locktite for sure.

    It’s pretty surreal seeing them look like they will work😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎

    I’m leaning towards putting these in the pamper 🀫🀫🀫🀫🀫🀫

    These things are way cool.Β  I’d consider fabing a brace to triangulate the bottom of the box back to the axle tube.Β  With the wheel center that far down on the box it just seems like a stress fracture around the tube/box junction waiting to happen, especially when over terrain where the suspension cycles through positive/negative camber extremes.

    The dream is becoming a reality. I can’t wait to see how well they work.

    I would consider a case saver type of thread insert for the box to spring plate bolts sort of like a VW case to prevent them from stripping out.

    yes a case saver/ time-sertΒ with a stud would be best there

    I’m honestly scared to be drilling and tapping these box’s πŸ₯ΉπŸ₯ΉπŸ₯Ή. But agree. It’s not a through hole… Β and I don’t have a pile of them out back if I fuck one up..

    Next set 2.0😎
