I had the SSC 3rd 4th and FD. JDS cooler (LSD/Redline/long 6th etc)

The soft stuff in the box (syncos etc ) must be considered consumables and rebuild every 6-7000 miles is not unreasonable if you use the car as a track car and drive to the track.
The new gears were great and didn't ever look like the weak point. (300 hp at the hubs)
I am new to the game - 211 ? Is that the c64 6spd?

Any idea what torque level kills them? Some are saying 190. some 200ibft.

The cooler seems to be key.

What gearbox/transmission fluid did you use?

211 is the open track car lotus made, uses the same Toyota supplied engine and box as Elise and Exige S2 so yes a C64

Mechanical sympathy will help, but as said, if you track it, it will break! Watch my video, no curbs, it broke at peak torque in 3rd......

This isnt fair. Nothing else is allowed to break!

I will be especially cheesed off as I am but a small % higher than the 260 exige torque wise!

Good job you haven't fitted a 2.8 pulley .
Things get even more expensive then... I got through 3 clutches in short succession !
Exedy , helix and standard.
But the SSC gearset and quaife diff were bulletproof :-)

don't forget that gearbox was designed for 190hp and no torque at all,
the teeth on 3rd and 4th are very narrow add the flex in the shaft and expansion of the gearbox from heat, means the skinny teeth don't mesh completely and hey presto no teeth on 3rd gear,

fix it before it does break ;)

Yes, all S2 Exige use exactly the same gearbox NA 220 240 260

only difference is some will have an LSD

240hp + cars also came with a better clutch, again the standard clutch was designed for 190hp and no torque, mine spun out on a dyno run. My car was originally a 220hp car and that gave up at 260hp

I have LSD , and uprated clutch.

I feel I might be sat infront of a ticking timebomb :)

This could be fun
