Everyone loves a good Billet machined part these days, we do too, but we also love a good casting. Billet machined parts like Bellhousings are a great way to make a prototype or small run of parts, but once we get into decent batch sizes of parts that certainly will have an ongoing life cycle, casting is the only way to go. The price of a Billet Bellhousing like shown here can be about 4-5 times that of the cast version. This is a prototype Billet Bellhousing we’ve made, that we have now produced patterns for allowing the future versions to be sand cast. Both look the goods to us and the sand cast version will be more than adequate for the job. There is no compromises with its strength or functionality, and as mentioned it’s much more cost effective to produce on an ongoing basis. #holinger #gearbox #mf #sf

We shipped a pretty cool version of the MFT the other day. This is going into a Mid-Engined Sportscar, powered by an LS V8. The different thing about it compared to others we've manufactured however, is that it's setup in an Engine-Gearbox-Diff configuration, with the Output Flanges above the Input Shaft/Crank. So the engine is very low and the rear overhang on the car is going to be absolutely minimal. We designed the MFT to be very modular, in that it can take input from either end and be turned upside down, so this configuration was always one we thought would be popular, but until now it hadn't been taken up by anyone. The nice thing about it also was that this package is made up entirely of parts/designs that were "off the shelf" so to speak. No additional engineering or design was required. It was something that could be ordered and built from the standard options we have. #mft #transaxle #lsswap

If you haven't seen it yet Auto Action had a drive of the Mustang GT4 recently. They've got a great write up in the latest issue about the car so check it out. We've loved being involved in this project and really enjoyed the video. Happy Friday! #RD6

As you may have seen the other day we recently rebuilt a couple of old H6S's for Perkins Engineering. One of these is pretty special as it's for the 93' Bathurst winning car, the last car to do so with a Holden engine. Larry and Jack are restoring it back to it's former glory and perhaps even past it. Whilst it's great to work on new projects and products, it's also really nice to be able to fix up old Holinger gearboxes, especially ones with such history. It's worth mentioning that whilst we were given plenty of time to do the rebuilds, we had most of the parts on the shelf and certainly were happy to manufacture whatever else we needed. The H6S gearbox dates back to 1991 and we still support it, along with the GRA-5 which is even older. Where we can we will make spare parts for our older products. So when you buy a gearbox from us, as Larry Perkins did in 1991, you know you’re going to get the support you need to run it for decades! We know Larry has been a bit under the weather lately, so get well soon mate from all of us here!

So after something a little older yesterday, here's something brand new: A rear mounted MXT Transaxle with a Clutch/Starter package installed on the front. This is a 6-Speed Sequential, Paddle-Shift version of the modular M(F/X)T series and is perfect for those high-Power/Torque front-engine, rear-wheel-drive applications. It's rated to 880 NM/650 FT-LBS of Torque for Endurance racing. As always this is a conservative rating from us, allowing customers to really asses the effectiveness of a product over a high duty-cycle in long events, rather than the "flash in the pan" failure rating often seen advertised today. So will it take far more Torque than this in short bursts? YES! Putting the Clutch/Starter on the front of the Transaxle, rather than the engine, improves vehicle weight distribution. On the subject of weight the entire assembly comes in around 90kg, depending on the type of clutch used (we have several options). The Transaxle alone weighs in the mid 70kg's depending on options. We've yet to publish any info about this on our website so please email us for details!

We produce a huge amount of varied products these days, that end up in all kinds of Racing Cars in different parts of the world. So it's always interesting and nice when some products that we haven't made for a while seem to come back around again. Today we finished off a 6-Speed Sequential RD6 gearbox, fitted with a Bellhousing for a Ford Windsor V8, essentially the exact spec of a V8 Supercar from ~10 years ago. It includes a special Flywheel we manufacture and uses a Tilton Reverse Starter, Clutch and Release Bearing. We've actually have a batch of the Bellhousings and Flywheels going through the factory at present for the first times in years, as we've sold the stock we had and have a lot of fresh enquiries. #holinger #rd6 #ford #windsor

If you're in Melbourne this Saturday come and visit us at Fitted Festival. We'll be exhibiting our products along with many other great companies. If you're attending come and say hi, have a look at some of our Gearboxes up close and see some of the cars we have them installed into.

Congratulations guys. We’re so used to sending our gearboxes to the other side of the world for projects like this, it’s awesome to see them come home and achieve success! #bathurst12hour

Sorry to hear the guys have had to withdraw. Great to hear that Steve is ok though. It was really great to see this iconic car competing in the Dakar Rally, hopefully they can give it another shot! #nextyear #dakar #rd6 #aussieute

Happy New Year! Well that’s what normal people say this time of year. Racing people usually interpret that as the Dakar Rally is about to start! This year we’ll be cheering extra hard for Steve Riley and his team. Steve’s been using our gearboxes for years in his Rally Raid cars so it’s great to see him tackle the big one in his home grown Holden Ute. You can follow all the action via Aussie Holden Ute-DAKAR 2019. #holinger #rd6 #dakar #holdenute.

So 2018 has drawn to a close for us, it's now time for a couple of weeks of well earned R&R before a big 2019. We wish a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all, our gift to you is this video! We've had it in our possesion since earlier this year but haven't found the right moment to post it, it is from the Rallye Du Var 2017. So strap yourselves in for a ride with 90's WRC Superstar François Delecour at the wheel of a GT-R Aston Martin Vantage V8 Rally Car. This car was built by Finnish Rally guru Kari Mäkelä at Mäkelä Auto-Tuning. It uses an adapted version of the GT3 Transaxle we made for the DB9 many years ago. Turn it up and enjoy! #holinger #G6S #transaxle #astonmartin

Introducing the MXT. Here is the very first unit of our latest product, the MXT, which is the bigger brother to the MFT. In basic form this is a modular inline Transaxle, much like the MFT, which we expect will find itself installed into a huge range of vehicles, from GT to Time Attack and Off-Road. It can be driven from either end, turned upside down, be bolted to an engine (front, mid or rear) or located remotely. This particular version is going into a hugely potent Porsche 911 Turbo so has an integral Porsche Bellhousing fitted to it. If you would like any particular info on this please email us directly via info@holinger.com.au as we’re yet to upload any content on our website. It’s that new!

We’ll be cheering Steve and the team on in early January when the Dakar Rally kicks off! It’s certainly not the first time we’ve had a gearbox in the field, far from it in fact, but seeing a V8 Holden Commodore-Ute race with our products in that event just makes us smile! #rd6 #holinger #dakar #aussieute
