How often would the gearbox need attention with this kind of setup? Will it literally be drop it in and forget unless something breaks (like the regular gearbox) or will they need fettling with in comparison?

You will have to excuse me, I know very little about anything but standard gearboxes LOL Doh

I would have said more regular oil changes? To save synchros but other than that should be fit and forget.

Well the kit is only to replace 3rd and 4th but you've still got to protect the other 5 gears

It's to be expected that the 3rd 4th gear should be fit and forget but remember that the very nature of the dog box means more metal particles in the oil therefore shortening synchro life with the other 5 gears! C'mon Mei give us a chance here Smile

It'll be the same Tom but 3-4th won't need to use clutch and by god I am not going to bother if it works that'll be the difference in. 1-2 seconds 0-120

When I was reading the touring car specs I read they have a switch on the gear stick that senses when your changing gear and kills the ignition for a moment. Wouldn't it hurt it if it has to change gear while you still have full power on?

You don't leave full power on, you pull the lever slightly to put a bit of load on the undercut on the dogs, then lift sharply and immediately re-apply power, the unloading from lifting will disengage the undercut on the dog and it should flick from one gear to the other as you're getting back on the power if you've got your timing and technique right.
