Re: [DML] Limits of stock transmission

The limitation on the 5 speed transmission is the primary input shaft.  
The gearbox (Renault 369, later the UN1 on the Lotus Esprit) is a good 
basic design, however at that time (1980s) vehicles did not produce the 
massive HP and torque we see today.

The primary shaft has a few diameter change "steps" which create a 
severe weakness when applied to high torque; it's only missing a 
a "break here" marking!

The upgrade kit my company is designing will address all underlying 
flaws to handle high engine output.  It will be available this fall; 
only 15 kits are being manufactured.  Pre-purchase details will be on 
the website in July.
