Red or Silver adjustable cam gears? Also, if anyone knows where I can get Fidanza (or equivalent) gears for less than $180 shipped, speak up.

I'd much rather pay a little extra and not get OBX, thank you.

Red gears are faster, and will give you better throttle response, but the silver ones clearly make for a more stable drivetrain at higher RPMs, which is why I would only install sivler gears.

I'd paint them white if I were going to paint them.

I have one silver, one black (unorthodox) that I will never use. The silver one has a drilled/tapped hole in it for a sensor trigger. Might be too ugly for you- but far from rice.

I voted silver.

Are you going to adjust them? If not, can we laugh and point?

Yeah the whole point of them is to adjust them. And if I get them quick enough, I can get FREE dyno time...
