My car is for Fun too, but it won't be much fun if I keep having transmission problems. Would like to know how Mercury Motorsport get on with there's in the Nitto running 1100ATW through it. For me 10 grand is a lot of money on something that MIGHT be ok, I'll just sit tight and if a SH one comes up that's been refreshed I might take my chances, thanks for you feedback tho!They recommend inspection, yes. Doesn't mean a full strip and rebuild unless there is a good reason to do it. A good reason being anything from a strange noise/actual failure to the user NEEDING it to work and being willing to drop the cash. A competitive racer for example. My car is for fun, not for racing, and thus far (fingers crossed) I've had no issues requiring investigation. If it breaks now, I won't lose any sleep. I'll get it repaired and do exactly the same thing again. I went for it eyes wide open, knowing it isn't for everyone, but being confident that I could deal with it if it didn't work out.
I was thinking that with the preload, must be very hard to preload it without confusing it to thinking your gonna change gear, totally agree you shouldn't have to worry about it when trying to concentrate on other thingsThe pre-load is an interesting question. Yes, I try to - however, it's a fine line when there's a load cell and GCU involved because slightly too vigorous a pre-load pressure on the lever will cut the ignition before you've given a positive pull for the change. This is potentially a bit specific to the way the shifts are set up on my car but it's certainly an issue for me. On track, I trust the Geartronics to do its job and shift without any thought about loading the box. You shouldn't have to be worrying about that on the way out of a long corner, on the karting line in the pouring rain.
