<font color="yellow">Nope, the gears would be too thin or not fit or something like that, depending on which company you talk to....

only suggestions ars some sort of underdrive, like the Klune.. or stackin a 203 on the back of your 205...</font c>

Atlas is pretty damn strong. You really don't need a 205 in a vehicle as light as a Flatty.

Do you already have a granny?

get the atlas if you got the coin!
300's are not the beefiest units around but AA makes bigger output shafts if i'm not mistaken and in a flatty that should do just fine!

Well you have a few choices. Lengthen your wheelbase on the flatty, and throw in a klune. POersonally I run a 300 in my flatty, and never had a proiblem with it yet. I love the 300 and everything about it. The new output shaft is $700, add the gear set to it, you are up to $1400. Might as well do the Atlas. Also the new output on the 300 makes the input the weak point. So now instead of breaking an output sharft people are breking input shafts. Good luck with whatever you chose to do.

A friend sent this to me from CK5......



That's about the scoop, sometime around Feb of next year we should have them available. That's assuming testing and all go as planned but it all looks good so far. Preliminary pricing looks like about $750 or so for the set. That's obviously +/- as much as $100 more or less.
As this date becomes closer and more firm (a closer, firmer date, HMMMMM ) we may look at creating a list for the first batch to help manage the initial rush.

I think this could be a pretty cool deal. Doubler kit with 2,3 and 6:1 gearing, wahoo! And the gears are in the right place to work right, the 205! Or even in a general use 4wd, 3:1 could work well as a single transfer case. I'm showing about 42:1 with 4.56's, 3:1 'case and a TH700. That's a pretty decent crawl with a single case and would work well with smaller tires in smaller terrain and could really shine in wheelspin intensive terrain like sand, snow, mud, etc.

This could be the hot ticket for big tires, big rocks, low numeric axle ratios and TH350 and TH400 trannies. Once again you can save the money on 5.13 diff gears and 3:1 TH400 gears and still end up with a HUGE crawl ratio and strong ring and pinions. Calculations say 62:1 with a TH350, 6:1 Doubler t-case and 4.10 axle gears. That's where I'm at now with a TH700 and 5.13's and standard 4:1 Doubler and I rarely want more and if there was no other option, could gladly live with it.

Of course 94:1 will be fun to play with!

Then there's 180:1 with an SM465 and 4.56 axle gears.....

last time I checked there was a disclaimer with the atlas *not for fullsize use*
just thought maybe that would put to rest the atlas vs. 205 strength issue :flipoff2:

JBconversions has a kit it will be ready soon 3.0 ratio.
screw the atlas only 40 pounds lighter than a 205! and not as strong but it has it's place and so does the 205:D
