Default REM and Surface Treatments

Looking at a new set new of gears.
Considering having them Rem and MicroBlue treatment

There is Cryo'ing gears for more strength.
Does that work with axles?
What is the over all benefit..?

If you get all this treatment was considering using less gear ratio.

These are things to do only when you have exhausted every other idea of ways to go fast. Total waste of money on an application like you are considering. I would bet whatever amount of money you care to wager that you would see absolutely no difference in ET.

Question Re: REM and Surface Treatments

I just finished installing a set of 9” REM polished Gleason gears.I don’t think the REM polish will help with performance as much as wear reduction.I also micro blued all the bearings.It certainly helped the rotating torque, but again I doubt I’ll see any performance advantage.The micro blue stuff will most likely help in reducing wear and oil temps depending on the parts that are coated.I wouldn’t change gear ratio because of the polish or coatings.

There is a member on this board can't recall his name,believe he ran a black 64? BB Mopar. He used to coat/treat RP gears,the cost was very reasonable with good results in terms of gear life and performance gains.He may have sold the company a few years back...gsa612
