Hey guys,
Happened upon this guy a while back and figured people would like the product and the fair pricing.
Give Peter a shout, let him know who sent you and maybe get a little better deal......

Price range? Affordable depends on perspective.

By looking at the Czech link, it's something like 50% of any other drop in Honda B-Series dog gear kit that I've seen on the market ($3000 Czech vs $5000+ for other kits). Peter K is a great guy. Very quick 2WD guy, even when he was in a rinky-dink Suzuki Swift.

I'm looking up from past results with Peter K in his VW and he seemed to have a few transmission related issues for DNFs. But it could be something entirely different internal components besides the gears? I know he had these Czech kits in his Suzuki Swift without any issues. Typical transmission failures on B-Series dog box retrofit kits, the stock shift change mechanism inside the transmission becomes the weak point as you're slamming into gears compared to a syncro box. These issues even happen on stock syncro boxes, if I remember Cody had this failure in 2010 at LSPR in his Honda.

Either way, even $3000 + $400 for an upgraded shift change is beyond my budget and more on my dream list. More so for the $5000+ boxes. Maybe I should start up a GoFundMe? That seems to be all the rage these days for people who don't want to pay for rally stuff.
