    Default gear vendors overdrive

    Has anybody visited the idea of a group purchase for the t400 overdrive unit?

    I'd likely be in for one, if the savings was significant.

    I don't recall ever seeing a posted attempt to get one going. Just takes someone to contact the vendor and see what's possible, if anything.

    Gear Vendors 800 number is 999 9555, Mike is probably the guy to talk to. He is easy to talk to, as in not a jerk. I'm not sure how flexible GV would be with their prices.

    I've been torn between the GV and a 200R, I've read that you do have to do a bit of weld work on your rear trans cross member to make the tailshaft sit at the correct height.
