it was the one from our good friends at cartparts plus. No it was not that i had to. its an up grade for low end torque. there is nothing wrong with it. i'm now able to climb all the hills that i couldnt before. i was just wondering why it would throw 3+ feet of dirt in reverse but not in forward

dave is probably right about the gear ratio it makes alot of sence..

Can I just call you "HWM" ? Do you feel like the "torque spring" took away your "top end speed" ? I've installed quite a few and they made the car feel like a "slow tractor". Would climb the side of a wall.......Maybe thats what you were after? Please post and let us all know your feelings. Later Dave

no dave it didn't take away the top end. it just seemed a bit slower than i had expected climbing hills in forward than reverse. granted i used to not be able to CLIMB a hill period without a little speed but i think its like you said a higher gear ratio in reverse. now that i think about it. it always seemed to have a bit more torque in reverse. thanks dave. never the less you always seem to know what your talking about
