Ter­rain Tamer Mod­i­fied Ra­tio Gear Sets

NZ4WD - - NEW PRODUCTS -

Avail­able for a range of Toy­ota mod­els, as well as a small number of Nis­san and Suzuki ve­hi­cles, these gear sets are made in Ja­pan us­ing exclusive Ter­rain Tamer tooling and in­clude all re­quired gears to of­fer ei­ther an ap­prox­i­mate 15 per­cent in­crease or re­duc­tion in trans­fer case ra­tio.

This mod­i­fi­ca­tion of gear ra­tio al­lows the driver to ad­just the ve­hi­cle to suit their de­sired ac­tiv­i­ties and con­di­tions – a lower ra­tio for in­stance, pro­vides more power for tough off-road ac­tiv­i­ties such as rock crawl­ing and steep up­hill driv­ing, en­ables smoother de­liv­ery of power to the driv­e­line, re­duc­ing the risk of com­po­nents break­ing and al­low­ing the driver to approach these ob­sta­cles at a lower speed, but with more torque.

A higher ra­tio on the other hand, low­ers en­gine revs to pro­vide bet­ter and more com­fort­able high­way driv­ing at higher speeds, and is es­pe­cially use­ful for V8 or turbo charged diesel en­gines.

An in­crease in gear ra­tio of­ten re­sults in bet­ter fuel econ­omy and run­ning tem­per­a­tures, lower cabin noise and can help to ex­tend en­gine life.

Ter­rain Tamer’s Mod­i­fied Ra­tio Gear sets are now avail­able from all stock­ists. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit ter­rain­tamer.com or call 1300 888 444.
