toygeek i'm going to find a nissan case and look. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> there is room to fit a small divorced case in between the stock one and the tranny. and yes as long as it's input and rear output are centerd i don't see why it wouldn't work. i bet it's stronger than the sami case too.

this is why I would put it in back, the stronger one further downstream, since it will see more torque than the first one.

o.k. mine is an offrad only rock buggy zook thing and i'm running the zook case first and nissan case 2nd but, i'm bolting it directly to the front output on the sammy case. so it's backward but it turns the right direction . the nissan case has the input on the top and both outputs are centered. the case is vertical in design and it is about 8" from upper input to lower outputs. a buddy is machinng a 1" adapter fer me and i have not run it yet but it should work great. the nissan case is in the center of the frame this way and with 9" of lift, my drivelines are only at 5 degree angle to the case. cooool huh !!!

Poppyseed,
Call Gary @ Petroworks. I spoke with him today about a "Planitary" system (4:1 ?) that takes the place of the trans drive shaft. He said something about less than $1000. This would give you street driving and multiple gear reduction choices.

I still think you should "Stretch" your rig to fill that extra frame. I have an extra hardtop body that "you" can have for free if you do it.

Have Fun
Dave

sounds cool but next spring? <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0"> also with another 4:1 box i would be at 377:1 <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> a little overkill. i think i'm going with the AA reduction box, AA 4:1 gears in the toy case and just mount them with the ott adapter to my sami tranny. also to afford all the gears i think i'll just go with 1300 engine and a 1600 head?

so it looks as if i'll be selling the grs2 very, very, very, soon. <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

The Klune gets you deep in first but how about 2nd 3rd and 4th, nothing wrong with using those gears is there? The ranges I looked at with the Klune would be nice in 2nd,3rd and 4th, and ya 1st was just silly. But the amount of money were talking could feed a small country for a few years! Someone tell me more about the Petro underdrive, I'm interested. <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

petroworks had no info on this thing except that he wasn't really sure what it was and it would be a long time before it came out. <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0"> but if it's like a klune for around $1000 that would be cheapest most effective gearing option... if it existed. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Fatkid, they wouldnt give any specs on it....though with all the people using kick and toy stuff..i see it something like that....i mean they are only selling for a grand???
I looked at the Klune set up also, that is very nice!! Very little mods to the rig, easy install and what you dont realize is you can run in High on your tcase and then run low on the Klune and you are about 124:1 in first gear!!
That is with a GRS1, Klune and 5.38's...the gearing options are amazing when you put a second case in there.

I'm trying, but I have a LOT of work to get either rig trail worthy enough for the trip. The rear 60 is still spun and I am having a hard time finding someone that can spin it back and weld the tubes to the housing. I'm trying though.

if the klune is a 4:1 box then won't it put a crapload of stress on the sami case? the klune is in the same ballpark as the marlin crawler box and 4.7 gears. well it is by the time you buy the ott adapter and modifie drivelines and switch your rearend out to a centerd diff. depending on what you do it could actually be cheaper. but how will the sami case hold up? in low low the klune and my grs2 would working at a 19.56:1 reduction. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> right no my case is a 4.89:1 thats a lot more stress.
