    i do. i was the one that did the testing. i have 3.73 micronite processed gears.

    i did two seperate tests. the first one was comparing a set of unprocessed 4.10 gears to the micronite proceesed gears. this test compared rwhp, temperature, and wear. both gears received over 1000 miles on them. and went and track tested them as well with a 200 shot of nitrous.

    second time around, we used 3.73 gears. tested REM treatment, cryogenic treament, REM and cryogenic treatment, and the micronite process. all gears went through 500 miles run in and dyno testing. i did 6 gear swaps in 4 months.

    I may swap gears in a month or so.Ive seen guys with auto such as myself push the stock 10 bolt into the 10's.I figure if im paying for install why not get them.
