Alfaholics Premium Quality Synchromesh Ring - Competition Use
£110.00 GBP (ex vat)
Exclusive Alfaholics production competition synchro ring. We developed this production in 2012 and have used them in every single road, trackday and race car we have built in this period. These synchro rings have been used in multiple championship winning cars including our U2TC FIA 1600 GTA and are fitted in all our acclaimed GTA-R builds.
Originally we undertook the project to get away from the cheap poor quality reproduction rings that were the only product available at the time, however, quickly we understood we could improve the synchro design to give a faster and smoother gearchange than was possible with genuine OEM Alfa rings to make a product more suitable for competition use. As lovely as OEM synchro rings were when they were still available, they took time to bed in and get a nice fast and smooth gearchange; typically period of time in which 300-500 miles would be covered. Of course for competition use, 300-500 miles bedding in period is not ideal and the last thing you want is a slow gearchange in qualifying on a freshly installed gearbox. Realistically a typical race gearbox will only see 500-1000 miles between scheduled maintainance rebuilds or a competition rally car 2000-5000 miles. The design of our synchro ring will ensure perfect gearchanges from the very first gearchange leaving the pit lane and regular servicing our our works cars over the past 8 years have proven a life span well exceeding those typical service intervals.
