This is very cool stuff but looking at the pics and reading. I was thinking
The dogs come off, what would happen if you got say a tripple cone CF syncro/dogs etc that is used in a vett I would guess you would have to do it in a matched pair say 1 and 2.
I do not know if the dogs come off in the vett tranny but if not they could be milled down.
but think if we could.. fast shifts no grind long life...
I think the mill work would be just a bit more then the mill work we do all the time to lighten the gears

The next thing I see is somewhere in the late 60's Alfa put in needle bearings on 5th.
can the needle bearings be used on the rest of the gears too??
