CHECK it out! 5.14 gears for $100 more than 4.16, and no cores!

This has got to be good news. The high range corrects for 32's. Damn good price. Here's what they have to say about them...

Nice...but for some reason I just dont trust the availability of anything form Calmini :rolleyes: dont know why :D

if its truly in stock then the other vendors will be forced to drop the prices on the old GRS1 gears just to sell off the old stock they have. :D

I would buy them!

We bought some 5.8's for ambers tcase.....they arrived to my house 2 days after i ordered them!

I have bought quite a few things from them....and they have always shipped my stuff right away and its always been good quality.

As for there gears the only thing they need to add to there box is a new shifter sheet.....other than that the kit is totally complete!

Wel thats good to hear about the delivery and stock. In the past they have had a hbit of saying yea we have those, or We'll have them in two weeks, and not delivering what they say or when they say it, especially on the new items.

glad that seems to be resolved....now if we can get them to lower thier pricing on some of the other tiems they sell.......
:D

Hmmmmm... you mean?

Now the Star-bellied Sneetches had bellies with stars.
The Plain-bellied Sneetches had none upon thars.
The stars weren't so big; they were really quite small.
You would think such a thing wouldn't matter at all.
But because they had stars, all the Star-bellied Sneetches
would brag, "We're the best kind of Sneetch on the beaches."

With their snoots in the air, they would sniff and they'd snort, "
We'll have nothing to do with the plain-bellied sort."
And whenever they met some, when they were out walking,
they'd hike right on past them without even talking.

When the Star-bellied children went out to play ball,
could the Plain-bellies join in their game? Not at all!
You could only play ball if your bellies had stars,
and the Plain-bellied children had none upon thars.

When the Star-bellied Sneetches had frankfurter roasts,
or picnics or parties or marshmallow toasts,
they never invited the Plain-bellied Sneetches.
Left them out cold in the dark of the beaches.
Kept them away; never let them come near,
and that's how they treated them year after year.

Then one day, it seems, while the Plain-bellied Sneetches
were moping, just moping alone on the beaches,
sitting there, wishing their bellies had stars,
up zipped a stranger in the strangest of cars.

"My friends, " he announced in a voice clear and keen,
"My name is Sylvester McMonkey McBean.
I've heard of your troubles; I've heard you're unhappy.
But I can fix that; I'm the fix-it-up chappie.
I've come here to help you; I have what you need.
My prices are low, and I work with great speed,
and my work is one hundred per cent guaranteed."

Then quickly, Sylvester McMonkey McBean
put together a very peculiar machine.
Then he said, "You want stars like a Star-bellied Sneetch?
My friends, you can have them . . . . for three dollars each.
Just hand me your money and climb on aboard."

They clambered inside and the big machine roared.
It bonked. It clonked. It jerked. It berked.
It bopped them around, but the thing really worked.
When the Plain-bellied Sneetches popped out, they had stars!
They actually did, they had stars upon thars!

Then they yelled at the ones who had stars from the start,
"We're exactly like you; you can't tell us apart.
We're all just the same now, you snooty old smarties.
Now we can come to your frankfurter parties!"

"Good grief!" groaned the one who had stars from the first.
"We're still the best Sneetches, and they are the worst.
But how in the world will we know," they all frowned,
"if which kind is what or the other way 'round?"

Then up stepped McBean with a very sly wink, and he said,
"Things are not quite as bad as you think.
You don't know who's who, that is perfectly true.
But come with me, friends, do you know what I'll do?
I'll make you again the best Sneetches on beaches,
and all it will cost you is ten dollars eaches.

Belly stars are no longer in style, " said McBean.
"What you need is a trip through my stars-off machine.
This wondrous contraption will take off your stars,
so you won't look like Sneetches who have them on thars."

That handy machine, working very precisely,
removed all the stars from their bellies quite nicely.
Then, with snoots in the air, they paraded about.
They opened their beaks and proceeded to shout,
"We now know who's who, and there isn't a doubt,
the best kind of Sneetches are Sneetches without."

Then, of course those with stars all got frightfully mad.
To be wearing a star now was frightfully bad.
Then, of course old Sylvester McMonkey McBean
invited them into his stars-off machine.
Then, of course from then on, you can probably guess,
things really got into a horrible mess.

All the rest of the day on those wild screaming beaches,
the Fix-it-up-Chappie was fixing up Sneetches.
Off again, on again, in again, out again,
through the machine and back round about again,
still paying money, still running through,
changing their stars every minute or two,
until neither the Plain- nor the Star-bellies knew
whether this one was that one or that one was this one
or which one was what one or what one was who!

Then, when every last cent of their money was spent,
the Fix-It-Up-Chappie packed up and he went.
And he laughed as he drove in his car up the beach,
"They never will learn; no, you can't teach a Sneetch!"

But McBean was quite wrong, I'm quite happy to say,
the Sneetches got quite a bit smarter that day.
That day, they decided that Sneetches are Sneetches,
and no kind of Sneetch is the BEST on the beaches.
That day, all the Sneetches forgot about stars,
and whether they had one or not upon thars.

Everybody has their favorite vendors.

So are they going to still offer the 6.5s? Or were the counter gears wearing out to fast, so they jumped back down to the 5 range?

Tim, why don't you go ahead and spill the beans on the Calmini bolt on coil kit for the Samurai? You know you want to. :flipoff2:

-Wayne
Yes, they will still make the 6.5 and the 4.16, and may even add an addtional set that goes even deeper. I don't know anything about gears wearing out, only welded ones failing. I know of many 6.5 and 5.8 units that are running fine.

I can't spill the beans, but I can cut the cheese. *fart*:p

p.s. Does anyone still do a welded gear? I can't think of any.

mine are. (bought the oem gears and took them to Breeze, but it was years ago...)

back then there wasn't the mega selection we have now:eek:

The counter gear is the same as that of the 5.4, which is the same tooth pitch as the 4.16. I don't see any problems. Heck, there is a rumor of a 8:1 comming out soon (sometime before 2068).:D
