Australian gearbox specialists, Pfitzner Performance Gearboxes (PPG), has just finished work on its first Nissan GR6 gearbox upgrade.
The replacement first gear should hopefully alleviate issues some owners have been having when placing their R35s under high stress. The major problem has been stripped teeth on first gear which then leads to further failures.
The PPG gearset shown above on the left is clearly much wider than the stock item and will drop in without any further modifications.
Upgrades for high-power applications and a full 'first through fourth' gear set are also on the agenda. We'll keep you posted once we've got the low down on those.
Given it was the destruction of first gear that halted one GT-R owner's on-going quest for the R35 quarter mile record, we're looking forward to seeing times fall further - bring on the 9's!
