Eaton has launched a new performance ring and pinion product range for the automotive aftermarket that will allow gearheads to choose from a wide range of options and configurations to increase vehicle performance and improve horsepower.
There are two types of gear sets – street and competition – and customers can also opt for a Super Finish process, as part of which the gears are coated with a highly polished surface that is engineered to increase oil retention, reduce friction, improve wear resistance and eliminate the need for break-in. Horsepower can be increased from 3 to 5 percent by reducing the friction alone.
Commenting on the new product, Tim Bauer, vice president, aftermarket, Vehicle Group, North America said that the new ring and pinion sets from Eaton are ideal for the performance enthusiast. They can be paired with Eaton’s broad range of performance differentials in the case of both street applications and for the racetrack. He added that Eaton has a long history of providing quality automotive performance differentials for aftermarket enthusiasts, and the new ring and pinion sets are meant to continue that tradition while delivering the best quality and reliability and enhancing vehicle performance.
Eaton Performance ring and pinion gear sets are available in a wide range of axle ratios for Chrysler, Dana, Ford and General Motors axles.
Every Eaton ring and pinion gear sets comes with Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) cut teeth for better gear meshing, lower stress and smooth engagement of the gears. The rolled splines provide additional tooth strength and longer life while the durability is enhanced through the use of computer controlled heat-treated steel.
The street series gear sets are made from high-quality 8620 or 4320 steel which ensures long life under daily use conditions. The competition series gear sets on the other hand are made of high-quality 9310 steel for the higher impact resistance that is needed in races. The optional Super Finish is available on all Eaton ring and pinion gear sets.
