I'm looking for a performance replacement set of gears for the 6-speed transmission. Anyone heard of any? Anyone want to try and make some?

I was thinking that 1st could be lowered for quicker launches, then second would have to be lower as well so the 1-2 shift would easily land you into lift (second might end up being as low as 1st is now, so for normal driving you

What am I searching for. I tried searching before posting this thread, and didn't find anything. I guess I'll go take a second look.



Edit:
Ok, I the C-one thread, but it's not what I'm wanting, or looking for.

http://newcelica.org/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=54733

Maybe I should look more at the Kaaz kit. Anyone have more info on that one?




Here's my post to the C-one Thread:

For Ratio /2ZZ-GE

1st. 2nd. 3rd. 4th. 5th. 6th.

Normal 3.166 2.05 1.481 1.166 0.916 0.725
C-ONE 2.929 2.176 1.70 1.364 1.167 0.916 [/B]
I don't think this would work well at all for Drag or street. It's more of an autocross setup.
What I'd like to see is something more like:

3.33

i posted about this a while ago but nobody seemed to give a crap.

I know where you can order them in houston and can get ahold of a set.
I can get ahold of C-one stuff, but its VERY VERY hard to get...takes a long time but its VERY worth it...extremely high quality stuff.

the gears arent just good for autocross.

youll stay in lift on every shift. you guys who powershift THINK youre staying in lift, but imaginei f you shifted the same way WITH the gears.
the problem is even if you land in lift, you are still almost out of your powerband and not landing close enough tot he peak power from 1-2 hence why you always lose ground there.

my celica races always consisted of a win in 3rd...but if we only did up to 2nd gear id always lose.

these gears would fix that and probably shave about 1/2 a second off.

put the ratios into grand turismo or something to get an idea of what its like :)
I never said it wouldn't be an improvement, but it's not ideal for what you'd want for a drag racing car. If the C-one would give you a 1/2 second in the 1/4 mile, then the rations I mentioned should give you a hole extra second of the 1/4, and not ruin your highway gas mileage. The C-one set puts 1st at a higher ration then stock, which means it'll be even harder to get a good launch from a dead stop, which could almost compleatly counter act the advantages you get from the 1-2 shift.

Either way the C-one just isn't want I'm looking for, and costs more then what I want to spend on them anyway. There's got to be other options out there. Maybe a custom gearing place that can make them to order or something like that.

I just did a search on the internet for companies, and sent e-mails to the one's that seemed somewhat relavant. I also sent one to Quaife, but they told me they weren't planning anything for the celica. Maybe if they got flooded with e-mails about it, they'd reconcider. There web-page is here: http://quaifeamerica.com/

I've got the c-one close gear set + trd lsd, and they work pretty fine with me, on and off road..... super for 1/4 mile drag races.

My ride is an corolla tsport 2zzge engine and a zze123 chasis, and shares pretty much of the celica gts.

What kind of improvments did you see in the 1/4 from stock to C-one? How much did it effect your gas milage as well?

I did a test last week. I didn't use 6th gear at all to see what my gas mileage was like. I do about 80% freeway driving at 75 mph, and normally average 30-32 mpg. With one tank full not using 6th I got 28 mpg.
On the other hand I just did a long trip going 85 in 6th for hundreds of miles, and average about 34 mpg, and I'm guessing that if I did the same thing in 5th, I'd be getting around 26 mpg.
I'm also thinking that I could get oversized wheels like 215/17/50's to off-set the lower 6th, but then 1st gear would just be that much higher, and when I put my smaller racing tires on that might make for the higher 1st gear.

I guess my biggest problem with the c-one gears is that they moved 1st gear higher instead of lower. Of course then they'd have to move the 2nd down that much more.

I found a couple of places that does gears for domestics, and I already asked them, but I'm getting the same answer from everyone, "sorry we don't have anything for you, and there's no plans to make anything." I'm thinking we should try TRD, but I couldn't find any contact info on their web page.
