This gearbox is designed and manufactured for GT Sports Car applications such as GTE & GT3. It is a customer specification transverse gearbox, based on Xtrac’s successful Le Mans winning LMP gearbox designs. The casings are non-structural and ideally suited to the various GT classes.
The project involved the design, manufacture and assembly of a rear mounted, transverse gearbox. The resultant design allows gear cluster changes without disassembly of the rear of the car. Gear changes are performed using Xtrac’s positive and reliable sequential gearchange mechanisms which are compatible will all leading AGS suppliers.
Xtrac’s legendary record for reliability and performance was built on multiple winning Le Mans record from products like this.
