    4.77 final gearing

    I am not going to ask if its a good mod or what are the pros and cons. I do however would like to know if there is a difference between the manufacturers.


    FEED
    KnightSports
    RacingBeat


    Is there one that some prefer or more durable or whatever. Price is a bit surprising, the FEED one seems to be the cheapest, followed by KnightSports and the most expensive is RacingBeat.

    It's hard to say. FEED's gear quality is ok. The ring spacer's tolerances are a bit off though and often require some machining.
    I also stripped some of the bolts they provided... resulting in a differential rebuild 500km after the installation.

    I am leaning more towards RacingBeat, have some other stuff from them and always been pleased with the quality of their products so far

    Oh I will, next up my to do list is actually the Mazdaspeed wing, been debating if I should get it for a while now, and have finally made my decision. Going to order one this month, before they decide to no longer sell them

    I will suggest you should try Racing Beat, as it's products are usually much better and reliable then other ones.
