Understanding Thick Ring Gears & Carrier Breaks

Understanding Thick Ring Gears & Carrier Breaks

Posted by : Evan / Posted on : 19 May 2023

A carrier break is the point where the numeric increase in gear ratio necessitates a new/different carrier be used. The act of increasing the numerical ratio of a gear set results in the diameter of the pinion gear becoming smaller. To maintain proper contact, the thickness of the ring gear must be increased. The point at which thickening is no longer viable is known as the Carrier Break,...

Strengths & Advantages Of The Spartan Helical LSD

Strengths & Advantages Of The Spartan Helical LSD

Posted by : Evan / Posted on : 06 Jun 2022

When you’re driving in a normal manner a positraction limited slip differential is pre-loaded and provides equal traction to both wheels. Mashing the throttle, taking a tight corner aggressively, or working through loose gravel trails will result in the limited slip differential applying more torque where it’s needed. This enhances the grip, control, and predictability of the vehicle....
