Moti from blackbird has a post somewhere (locust maybe) where he finds the rumored 3.3 r&p and it doesn't fit. Pretty sure it's fully a unicorn.

Fair enough- I meant in terms of the junkyard market.

I managed to snag one out of an 80s-vintage 626 for around $100, but it took some searching.

Calling something a Spix's Macaw (critically endangered, yet not entirely extinct in the wild) doesn't convey quite the same meaning.

It's as if none of you comprehend ****.

Perhaps why so many of you are incapable and poor, not to mention break **** so often.

Your tags are great, shows high maturity level and skill present here.

I dont give a crap about how poor the average Miata enthusiast is, and I never said **** about a Quaife gear set. You are still out there arguing with your dumbass-self about **** I don't care. It may be a waste of time and money for you, but thats your free, worthless opinion that does nothing for this thread as far as productivity. The majority of the posts here other than mine are absolutely 100% bullshit and just shows how dumb you 1000 post users really are.

I figured it out by contacting more useful sources. Transmissions are nothing like brake pads, only perhaps the synchro and cone. That failure of the gears doesn't spontaneously happen in a perfectly rebuild transmission with a driver using the correct driving style, despite what your confident uneducated mind(s) seems to think about it. I have worked in various fields and witnessed almost every type of failure. Stripped gear teeth are the product of shock loading and excessive play in the shafts due to worn bearings. I am confident this gear set can hold at least 300ftlbs given the proper conditions.

Thanks for nothing Miataturbo.net

Shitty thing about people like this is we know he won't come back when he blows his 5 speed up. So we never get the satisfaction of being right :(

Being ignorant and in denial must be so frustrating.

The tags in this thread are actually pretty tame by comparison.

I can't remember which thread it is, but in one of the more popular ones, I'm actually accused of being a brony.

I have no idea why...

It's not spontaneous, in that they typically don't explode just sitting there on the bench or when the car is parked. Usually it doesn't happen until you put the car into gear, depress the throttle, and release the clutch. Sometimes it takes multiple applications, depending upon the amount of torque being produced by the engine, the engagement rate of the clutch, and the stickiness of the tires.

Well, understand that this being MiataTurbo, shaft play is something that we tend to enjoy.

That having been said, I wish you the best of luck. In all seriousness, you will impress a lot of people here if you manage to wring any serious amount of use out of a 5-speed transmission at >300 HP, presupposing that you drive the car in a reasonably spirited manner.

"Hi. I have next to zero experience with high power Miatas, but I'm going to assume that I know its transmission's limits better than people who've spent years, if not decades, racing them, and sometimes, running businesses based on more-than-doubling their stock power outputs. When presented with information from these people, I'm going to call complete strangers poverty-stricken idiots, because at 21 years old, I'm that much better than everyone."

Regarding transmission availability: if 5 speeds were in danger of becoming extinct, you wouldn't be able to pick them up as easily as you can for a couple of hundred dollars (or, apparently, $40). The fact of the matter is that the subset of the hundreds of thousands of Miata owners out there who will actually make enough power (or run them hard enough on the track) to break transmissions is miniscule, and Miata chassis are being lost to attrition far faster than transmissions are grenading. If this weren't so, the laws of supply and demand insist that the prices would go up, and it wouldn't be this easy and cheap to find transmissions for a car that's been around for longer than OP has been alive.

Although OP will refuse to admit it, transmissions are breaking because they can't handle high torque. Experts theorize that it's the transmission case itself that flexes, causing misalignment of shafts and the subsequent total destruction. At stock power, in anything but full-on racecar abuse, they usually live for hundreds of thousands of miles.

It's entertaining watching someone be so bitter, ignorant, and in denial.
