"the times they are a changing" Bob Dylan
breaks into the 8's with their flagship EVO, making it the
quickest 2 liter engined EVO in the nation. STM has been
using TRE as their source for drivetrain needs for several
years and their EVO ran 8.75@166
and the season is nowhere near over.
STM's EVO runs:
- TRE STAGE 2.5
exchange transmission with the HKS
4.11 final drive.
- TRE transfer case with the factory
RS limited slip front diff. This diff has 3 1/2 years of
abuse on it. Find out how it survives here.
- TRE 12 plate MAX-LOCKwith HD side cover & oil
05.19.11 TRE now stocks their HD side cover for
the Cusco limited slip rear differentials. There
are two designs available
so please check with us so we can get you the correct
04.12.11 TRE will be
releasing a replacement front limited slip differential
housing to replace the weak factory housing. This part is
much stronger and will be available immediately.
04.09.11 The EVO transfer
case main housing and tail housing receive machine work that
squares up the housings. The reason this is being done is to
make certain that both housings are square to one another as
it has a profound affect on how the ring & pinion contact
pattern turns out and the overall durability of the transfer
case. Don't waste a nickel's worth of your money on
replacing the ring & pinion gears unless you do this or
you're going to end up
breaking it again. You can send your transfer case where ever
you want but if you want it done correctly TRE is the only
shop for this job.
03.04.11 There seems
to be some confusion about weather the rear diff should be
filled to the level of the drain plug on the oil sight rear
covers so I added a indicator mark on the oil sight rear
cover for the EVO. This mark is the recommend oil
01.13.11 TRE will be
releasing a new transfer case housing. The new
housingis stronger than the
factory piece and holds nearly a full quart of gear oil.
Interesting findings during this project will be highlighted
redesigned HD side coveris available for the EVO rear differential. TRE
also has stronger side covers for the 90-99 AWD DSM and some
of the aftermarket rear differentials.
10.01.10 The land
speed record holding GVR4 is being taken to the Bonneville
Salt Flats this weekend. UPDATE: 10.09.10 A connecting rod
failure ended the fun. They have been
running the same transmission for 4 years without
09.19.10 TRE is now
offering rebuilds for the EVO-4 through EVO-9 transfer
cases. We use the genuine factory Mitsubishi ring &
pinions, bearings and oil seals. The
housing is CNC machined to bring it back to true making for
correct ring & pinion contact patterns. Don't even waste
a nickel's worth of your money on installing a new ring &
pinion unless this is being machined! The contact
patterns and bearing preloads are such that provide quiet
operation and long service life. Big bolt upgrade is
09.03.10 The Chevy
Cobalt owned by ZZ Auto set a new record of 10.70 @ 134mph.
They have been running a custom TRE transmission that I built
for over 3 years now without issue.
06.22.10 TRE is now
stocking the JDM close ratio 5th
gearset for the EVO-8/9 transmissions. This is the
holy grail of 5th gears for an EVO that is used for road
racing because the rpm drop from 4th to 5th gear is 12.7%
less, making the EVO pull like hell down those long
straights. 7500rpm in 4th = 6000rpm in 5th with the .825 5th
gear means no more getting passed by some sucka in a BMW.
Get better synchro life on 5th gear with this gear.
06.22.10 TRE is now
stocking the HKS 4.11 final drive
gearset for the EVO-8/9. The 4.11 final drive
will approximately 9.2% more mph in each gear, making it
ideal for drag racing or for use with 2.3 stroker motors that
aren't revving to the moon.
05.17.10 The land
speed GVR4 went to El Mirage over the weekend but didn't
break it's old record because of a alternator belt letting go
during a 9800rpm no-lift-shift. There were several 200+ MPH
passes made but the lake bed was in rough shape, making the
task of finding traction difficult but the car picks up 14mph
in the last 6 seconds of the run! The transmission is now in
it's 4th season of use. You can buy the exact same
transmission for your high torque DSM here.
NEW HOURS: 8am-5pm
Tuesday -Friday. Closed Saturday-Monday.
05.07.10 Updates have been made to the
05.01.10 There has
been some increases in the pricing. This is due to the fact
I have more services that are standard in my rebuilds and
that I am starting to venture into other projects.
04.01.10 Recent article about the
land speed record holding GVR4
04.01.10 Added an
oiling upgrade for the
EVO-4/9 transmissions. This greatly increases the service
life of your EVO transmission.
03.09.10 The EVO rear
differential now can be upgraded with an oil sight glassthat allows you to fill your rear diff
with an appropriate amount of oil to aid in longer life of
the pinion bearings.
Added some additional stuff to the MAX-LOCKservice. The carrier cap bolts are now replaced
and finally after hearing enough people ask for shiny bolts
they are included with this service.
transmission, transfer case & rear differential parts to
02.10.10 While I feel that high intensity shot
peening is going to offer the most value per dollar spent, I
am now offering W.P.C. & F.P.P. services but they must
be sent out until I have another shot peening machine so
expect longer turn around times if you choose to have them
CONGRATULATIONS TO VERNON AND THE CREW AT
RAVER MOTORSPORTS for their record breaking
228 mph pass at Bonneville Salt Flats located west of Salt
Lake City. The yellow GVR-4 went 228 mph on the salt over the
weekend. Their combined average both way speed was 224. They
are using our "high torque" transmission which
is ideal for stroker engines for the past 4 years without
failure. We expect it to exceed 230mph when it goes back to
Bonneville this October. UPDATE: They didn't get to make a
record breaking pass. Nothing transmission related.
#34 SCCA T2
After 2 seasons of SCCA
T2 road racing on it, I just received back the transmission
from the #34 EVO-9 that is owned and driven by none other
than Marty Grand. The only parts that I am replacing are
About $70 worth of parts. All of the other
parts are in perfect condition and will not be needing
replacement. It actually cost more to ship the transmission
one way than the cost of the parts needed to freshen it up.
(11.22.10 Marty won the
National Championship in 2011. This is same transmission that
was used for the 2009/2010 season that received $70 worth of
parts and the same transmission that Marty used for the
entire 2011 race season.) If you are looking for a
no-bullshit transmission that can handle the task of road
racing this is it.
As of April 1st 2009 we
are accepting only one core per transmission
As of January 2009 I am
back in college and will be open Tuesday-Friday.
TRE MACHINE SHOP SERVICES
We now offer machine shop
services for those who are building their own transmission.
Check it out, here.
CONGRATULATIONS TO MARTY GRAND AND CJ MOSES
AND THE CREW AT VIP GARAGE for their stellar race season. TRE would also
like to extend thanks to all the other shops involved that
did their part to make Marty
& CJ's 2008 race
season a success: Thank you AMS, VIP, Carbotech and JRZ and
all the other people who gave support. Now these two are the
fastest EVOs in SCCA T2 and they are the running our STAGE 2
transmissions and MAX-LOCK rear differentials in their EVOs.
If you are serious about racing your EVO and need a
dependable drivetrain we are the shop that can build
the trans you put together has been in my car since August of
07 and feels as good as the day I put it in. Thank you!!! -

TRE has put together transmissions that have
lasted the test of time while being abused more than anyone
could ever imagine, not to mention the rear diff mod that
finally allowed us to dial-in throttle oversteer. - CJ Moses
