    Straight cut gearset.

    PAR engineering in Australlia is the one to contact. Exchange rate from USD to AUD is good right now.

    there's actually MORE pressure between gears when they are straight cut. a beefier endplate would help keep 3rd gear from becoming a loose enough fit to tear itself apart.
    2000 S/R FSP build: APC shift knob, LED tails, zx2 sticker on the rear bumper, Silverstar headlights, blue spark plug wires, optima red top battery, Magnaflow muffler, and some lowering springs.

    Say what?? I thought straight cutting stopped the lateral pressure that forced the gears away from one-another?

    Straight makes the gears want to push away from each other, helical reduces it but tries to shove 1shaft one way and the other the other way.
