Iam looking to buy a two speed transmission/ manual gearbox.I like the Rap-tor gearbox and seems a good price , with the research i have done it seems to be a Winters product but i cannot find it on their site or anywhere on the internet. So question is who sells this item?
The gearbox is for off road racing clutch start,any suggestions appreciated . Thanks in advance Tom

Many thanks Tech. some good reading.also this is the second time you have been very helpful to my ongoing project.This Raptor " gearbox" as we call them this side of the Atlantic , are used by a few FORMULA ONE stock cars in the UK.this formula of racing is very spectacular and they use unlimited American v8 s [all sizes] Elite racing transmissions also make a similar gearbox in the UK. I just like to view all possibilities before i buy , and of course price is a factor , the Euro vs US. Dollar even with shipping is easier on the pocket than the Euro vs Sterling.
I will try a post on a UK stock car site and see what appears . regards Tom.
