    Just wondering if any has ever thought about, or installed one of these. Beside the noise and finding 5x4.5 lugs, any other thoughts?

    I like them, easy to swap gears. But, and you knew it was coming, with the gas tank in the factory location, I don’t think they will be able to occupy the same space (the rear of the quick change sticks out quite a bit).

    Sorry for not posting a picture of one. I had made the poor assumption that anyone with input would know what a quick-change was. They are most commonly found on old-style hot rods and circle track cars. I have not seen them used on builds outside of those scopes.

    Thanks for the gas tank comment - I'm going with a fuel cell so that is considered.

    Well... this is actually going into a forward look car so I won't document it here. I was thinking that perhaps some of the B-Mod crowd might have tried one or considered it and was hoping to gain some insights. I don't see any reason not to try it.....it will be different for sure.
