Argo's 1000 Racing Series Gearboxes

The cutting edge minds of Argo have once again set a new level of performance by asking "How can we make it even better?" Argo's 1000 Series gearboxes is the answer. The next generation gearboxes are now available!!! Each 1000 Series unit delivers a new level of performance and reliability for the ultra-high perfomance needs of racing. We've added even more performance to the high performance of the V600 Series by going over each and every gear, shaft and bearing. We've incresed the standard gear set from the 600 Series to 38mm wide. We've splined each shaft for added strength and reliability. We've added higher performance bearing to handle even higher revs. We've thought of anything and everything that the racer could ask for. We've designed the V1000 Series to handle as much horsepower and torque as you can imagine.

 Argo's V1000 Series Features - Argo's new wider 38mm gears are machined from high-quality, case-hardened steel. Each gear is spline fitted and match lapped for precision, strength and smooth operation. Shafts have even more strength than the 600 Series and bearings have been re-designed to handle more thrust-load. (designed for continuous drive systems)

 Argo's V1000C and V1000CP offer the same components as the 600 Series with the higher performance upgrades.
