Re: Gear drive

ChryCo used to make one - and I think either Clifford or HESCO does as well. They're a little spendy, tho - something in the $600 range, IIRC.

I'm kicking around the idea of designing one - along with a few other goodies that might help us. I'm getting some CNC stuff going, and I'd like to see the gear drives come back without having to get raked over the coals for it...

Re: Gear drive

IIRC the ChryCo piece is not made for street use either, something about not having the longevity built into it. make it even worse if you have to pay $600 and it only last 50K miles.
