Ralliart Dogbox questions Clubman Gr-A

Hello MLR.

It's been a while since I've posted. I'm working on getting all of my race car spares sorted out and revisiting a problem I faced a few years back with a Ralliart dogbox that was Ex-Galant/Ralliart Germany (as far as I know) with the helical-cut gears and magnesium case. (there are a few around on the internet all of slightly varying spec)

My understanding was that these are made by Mitsubishi.

I have one that I'm currently using in my Evo II which ias the usual 4.26 front diff ratio. I'm using a standard Evo II transfer case and it's all good.

The second gearbox is the one I'm curious about. It has a 4.61 front diff which means I'd need either a T Case with aa 1.18 ratio to use it with the standard rear diff, or I'd need a rear diff ratio of 4.23

Questions- has anyone come across any of these parts? Anyone have any leads on where one of these might be sourced? There's gotta be a shed with some ex GR-A parts in it somewhere. Please let me know.

Try Brena Corse who were more than likely the original maker.

Hi Alex

Contact Steve Hill at www.sgsracing.co.uk

He rallied early GrpA soec Evo's, successfully, and then moved on to Rallycross, Firstly with an "E3" using an Albins transmission, progressing to an EvoX with E8 engine and Maktrak transmission

Regards

Grant

All great suggestions guys. Thank you. I'll follow up on each of them. I need to renew my membership here. Lots of good changes to my car over the years. I'm on the hunt for some nice CT9A rally suspension if anyone here knows of some for sale. Grant nice to hear from you! It's been a while.

Alex

Would anyone have an email for Darell? I think he's on Facebook but I'm not.

While I'm at it.. It's never occurred to me to ask if anyone knows what XD stands for in this serial number.

A small update- I spoke with Luca at Brena Course. The guy is awesome. So nice. He spent a lot of time with me only to realize that it's not something that would benefit them to offer. They can do a lot with the 4-9 gearbox but were never involved with anything Mitsubishi before that. They started working for Ralliart in around 2003.

Back to the drawing board. I think my best hope is someone who has spares.

There’s a good chance the box was originally built by Dennis Osbourne at DOME I know he did quite a lot on the Galant transmissions

Problem is last time I spoke to him he was winding down and that was a couple of years ago. Could be worth a try though
