New LT230 ratios

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

a short note to make you aware we have recently taken delivery of two new LT230 ratios we have designed and made.

One is 1.100 : 1, ideal for those with tuned TD5 Discos or tuned TDCi Defenders who 'want another gear'

The other is 1 .301 : 1 ratio, good for those who have put bigger tyres on their Disco or TDCi Defender and find the 1.211 too high, or those with a TDi or TD5 Defender who want to gear it up a little but think the 1.2 ratio may make it a bit too high.

please take a look and let me know what you think,

the ratio calculator is quite useful to see the difference any changes will make :

That is a good idea, the 1.1 on a tuned tdci and std tyres would mean you could actually use 1st!

Ah, yes, finally!

I have a 2.4 BAS-tuned with Alive Intercooler, and sometimes I find myself looking for a 7th gear.

So this 1.1 would be ideal?

@Escape the original 1.003:1 is pretty good with portals, if anything you want even higher ratio if you're cruising about... although I realise I'm in a minority doing motorway miles on portals!

@FridgeFreezer I know the original 1.003:1 is even better, but as I understand it that's rare and hard to find. I had found one many years ago, when I was thinking about putting portals under my 90. Then I went and bought a car that already had portals, so I sold it on (maybe you remember? 😉 ).

I thought the 1.1:1 could be a good alternative. But I now see Ashcroft offers 1.003:1 as well, so that would be even better suited, as you say

Funny, I queries Pete from BAS about the ratio, and he doesn't recommend going to 1.1 even on a tuned 2.4
