Sonnax Racekits

Sonnax 8" and 10" non-lockup racekits are popular with converter rebuilders supplementing their stock rebuild with performance units for drag, sand rail, rock climbing, swamp buggy and mud racing.

New for 2014 – Fully Machined Front Covers!

Sonnax racekits traditionally featured partially machined front covers, with much of the outer face remaining as forged. In response to many requests from rebuilders to offer fully machined covers, Sonnax is pleased to announce this upgrade is now being implemented for all the 8" and 10" racekits.

Sonnax also will be pressing bushings into place on all covers except that found in the FD-RK-1 so that rebuilders no longer need to spend time on this step.

Stay Ahead of the Pack with Sonnax Racekits

  • Fully machined cover with bushing installed
  • Unit-specific design for hassle-free installation
  • Oil flow grooves and holes increase fluid flow to keep converters running cooler
  • Turbine hub features a larger flanged diameter to increase strength and rigidity of the turbine.
  • Clear, detailed instructions
