Extreme gear sets from Sonnax include Advanced Process sun gears and pinions made to the same exacting standards used on Formula 1, Nascar and other high-end professional racing circuits. Advanced Process parts undergo an additional three-step process that allows for greater durability and higher levels of performance.

  1. Cryogenic tempering to ultra-low temperatures (-350°F) for an even denser, more uniform gear with a tough and wear-resistant structure.
  2. Shot peening for increased gear resistance to fatigue failure, cracking or galling.
  3. Super-finish to reduce friction, vibration, noise and wear on the gear, potentially tripling the life of the part.

Each gear set includes a flanged sun gear and a ring gear. The flange is machined from billet, not a stamped piece. The flange is broached and matched to the sun gear for a precise press fit that does not require welding.
