World-Class Transmission Supplier To Showcase Innovation, Expertise At PRI 2023
SADEV Racing Transmission will feature its acclaimed inline 6 speed sequential transmissions, as well as the S-EV90 electric reducer for EV applications, during this year’s trade show in Indianapolis.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – The manufacturer whose transmission systems have powered race cars to victory at the highest levels of competition will offer attendees a one-of-a-kind experience at this year’s PRI Show, Dec. 7-9 in Indianapolis, IN.
In addition to showcasing its world-class lineup of products for 2WD, 4WD, EV and high horsepower, as well as transverse, inline and transaxles, SADEV Racing Transmission will feature a full-size gearbox build stand in its booth (#3139 in the Yellow Hall) to demonstrate for buyers and media the complete inner workings of a sequential transmission.
The company also will have technical, sales, marketing and operations experts on hand from both its European and US-based teams to answer questions and offer guidance on how to optimize its gearboxes for off-road, rally, drifting, GT, open wheel and more.
“We are always excited to be at the PRI Show in Indianapolis,” said Jeff “Fuzzy” Horton, SADEV operations manager. “PRI allows us to have in-depth conversations with potential and existing customers while highlighting our latest products.”
Each year, more than 1,000 exhibiting companies and tens of thousands of attendees come to PRI to discover the latest parts, equipment and solutions for racing and performance professionals. All forms of motorsport are represented throughout the Indiana Convention Center and adjoining Lucas Oil Stadium, including drag, circle track, road course, off-road, rally, autocross, drift, karting, truck and tractor pulling, and more.
Taking center stage at PRI 2023 will be SADEV’s SCL924LT, a lightweight yet incredibly strong and efficient 2WD inline gearbox specifically designed as a direct replacement for the Tremec T-56 Magnum. Allowing customers to upgrade their cars to a true sequential shift race transmission, it’s precision-engineered for high-powered engines found in GT, rally, off-road and other types of racing.
In fact, SADEV will bring its full line of SCL924 inline 6 speed sequential transmissions to PRI. Perfectly suited for the US motorsport market, all versions come with torsion bar dampened internals for superior durability; removable oil filters and inspection ports allow you to inspect the transmission internals without removing the transmission from the car.
Corvette owners seeking to transform their vehicle into a true sequential shift race car will be particularly interested in SADEV’s SCL924 C5/C6 Corvette Kit.
Innovation has long been a calling card for SADEV, and sharing the spotlight in Indianapolis will be its S-EV90. This versatile electric reducer, made specially for the performance EV market, features a choice of gear ratios, self-locking differential, oil pump and various mounting plates so it can be easily customized and fitted to different setups.
“Starting with Formula E in 2015, SADEV has been supplying innovative hybrid and electric projects ranging from Rally-Cross to Rally-Raid and World Endurance Championship cars,” Horton noted. “The S-EV90 is our latest offering for the EV motorsports community.”
Based in western France with US headquarters in Mooresville, NC, SADEV has been supplying high-performance, high-end equipment for 2WD and 4WD, along with differentials, to private customers, professionals, chassis manufacturers and car makers for over five decades. Thanks to its fully integrated process, SADEV can design, manufacture and assemble all the elements in house in France. Its transmission systems are found in vehicles at all levels of motorsport, from Formula, Formula E, Dakar Rally, Baja 1000, WRC, WEC, Euro RX and Formula Drift to tracks and courses in non-sanctioned events and club settings.
