Entry Level Transaxle

The MD4E uses the same massive case as the MD4-2D. The pinion shaft accepts both the VW 113 or 002 gearsets. By utlizing the 5.14 R&P ratio a higher ratio gear stack can be used assuring you of the strongest possible gear combo. Its target application is sand buggies producing 325 HP or less and off-road racers 175 HP. This would include 2.5 liter turbos and normally aspirated engines under 3.5 liters.

Keep in mind that all current MD Series main cases are universal, as are the diffs and bell housings. Should you decide to enhance your engines performance level your Mendeola dealer can convert your "E" into a "2D", greatly increasing its' strength.

MD4E Transaxle Options:
· Mid-Engine Shifter
· 4.11 or 4.86 Ring and Pinions
· Aluminum intermediate housing
· Pro-Drag conversion kit (supplied with spool)
