Quaife QBE69G – On the bench

The long awaited and saved for Quaife QBE69G gearbox arrived tonight, It was a good chance to get some critical measurements and plan the next steps.

This box didn’t come from the UK Quaife factory though, it came from Sydney, the last owners race category rules changed before he got the chance to use it. As soon as I unboxed it I made sure my clutch splines were correct and the input shaft was the one I needed. Details were a little shaky as the previous owner couldn’t give me much information. Im glad everything suits.

I have a new shifter attachment on its way from the UK, the great thing about these transmissions is they are designed for modular motorsport use and suit just about any layout, Quaife have 6 different shifters that span over half a meter forward and back available of the shelf and they are great to deal with.

  2. I want one in my next build, being lucky enough to find one like you did, might be more difficult though 🙁

    • Best thing to do Fin is open up a savings account for one, If i did that when i was dreaming of one 5 years ago i could have easily chipped away at it. Or take a loan out haha.

  3. What a beauty. Are you going to use the geartronics paddleshift?

    • Not at this stage Ric, but in the future i may, it wont be the geartronics unit though, will be working with another company to develop something thats intergrated into the ECU already, i see no point adding onto an already capable ECU
