Anybody Ever Shifted...

a dog-face gearbox? Just wondering how one of these would behave on the street. BTW, this particular model has been discontinued, but almost every roadrace / rally type gearbox is of this type. Nothing different between these and the average motorcycle gearbox. IIRC, the old Doug Nash 5 speeds were built like this...

I've asked this question before and all I got was "they're terrible on the street." When I asked why I never got a straight answer.

I do know that they are a bit sensitive to how they are run. They always must have the clutch fully depressed for shifts. If a dog tooth catches while the gears are locked in motion by the clutch it will snap them off. Other than that I always thought they'd be fine but noisy.

Shifting

If you are refering to a Jerico like roadrace trans, I had one in a Camaro that my brother and I roadraced. It would shift like butter under power, but... Under light load or putting into 1st from neutral when taking off was another story. Under light load, like driving on street and cool off lap, it would be difficult to put into gear. Although they sound wonderful I think they would be a pain in the tukas on the street. If you like the whine how about a M22 muncie, if you can find one. They are noisy and shift nice.

Somebody's offering up new M-22 gearsets, can't remember where I saw that now... I'm thinking you're right on the "easy" shifts being not so easy, just glad to have that confirmed. Oops, here's the gears!
