Flying Spanners - the 5.1's

Post by ranicotra » Thu Feb 04, 2016 8:27 am

does anybody have any feedback on the Flying Spanners high speed gears ? They've been offering the 5.99's for awhile, but have come out with a 5.1. Right now I have a completely stock C303.

I have a brand new set of their gears sitting in my office waiting for me to have a moment to install them. Service from them was great and the gears look to be decent enough quality. I can't tell the origin of manufacture from the machine markings. I will let you know once I can spare a moment to install them.

Is there any way to get a set of these for a 6x6 application? Or does anyone have a CAD of these or can get that info since flying spanners seems to have gone MIA

I run them in a Jeep with Volvo axles, they are great for highway cruising, Kamo Oko Vidi are now making gear sets very similar. It might pay to visit their website.

KAMO OKO VIDI have both 5.11:1 and 5.99:1 and they have them with the extra "drive" on the pinion for the centre axle on 6x6
