Dear Gentlemen

I have experienced 2 gearbox failures in 2 races. 

These have been due to failure of the mainshaft thrust washer behind 2nd
gear bush.            

We believe the problem is due to failure in lubrication, and would be
interested to know what the racers using overdrive boxes are using over

We have been using Castrol VMX 80
