Default C7 3:90 & 4:10 Gears

Any updates on manufacturing 3:90 or 4:10 gears for the C7 M7? I really miss those 4:10's in my C6.

Wonder if the 2017 Camaro 3:70 gears would fit. Most likely wishful thinking.

I'd swap them today if they do. How can we find out? GM tech?

Not to fuel the flames, but look what I have.

This would be the 4.10 variety and a 3.90 sitting next to it. We should have it in a car testing maybe late next week. Will keep you all posted. I know everyone has been patient, we have been working on this for over 3 years. It will be sooner rather than later and the C6ZO6 will be following up.

Your not dreaming. If you look real hard you see the cutouts for the diff cooler pump as well on it.

Anything in the works for spider gears? I've been through 3 differentials due to the spiders crumbling.

I don't think I'd even want to own my 500 rwhp C6 if it didn't have the 4.10s.

This will be the best change you can make to your C7s.

I don't generally have issue with them. If we are building a diff for a high horse car or road race car we will cryo the spider gears.

Justin - Not to jump the gun here, but I notice you currently offer a number of rear end gear sets for earlier vintage Corvettes. Do you distribute gear sets to installation shops around the country? Just trying to figure out where I'm going to need to travel to to get an installation done when C7 gears are available - I'm in SW Florida.

We do sell to allot of shops, both gears and completed differentials.
