R32 GTR Albins or Samsonas

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Does anyone here run an Albins sequential box in their R32 GTR? If so, did you have to modify the tunnel at all? Hard to find people running these transmissions.

Also, any feedback in general about the Albins will be good.

Albins requires mods on all GTR's to fit. 

Though they are almost ready to release a box that bolts in with no mods to the tunnel.

Interesting.. I know the older style Albins needed tunnel mods, but I also heard that the new ones don't need any tunnel mods?

The new one is ready but getting the shifter to fit is tricky, Hypertune are working on a kit that looks very neat, if you’re thinking of going albins, call hypertune

Am also intrigued in the Albins v Samsonas debate. Seems most time attack / circuit cars are running Albins and many drag cars run Samsonas. Anyone with any decent ideas / info on why?

 

I know Albins offer things like quick drop change of gearsets, but am wondering why the split and if there’s any data based reasons.

The Albins has an internal oil pump so may help for circuit cooling but they appear to be similar. I think B2R are putting the Albins in some decent powered straight line cars at the moment

Just went through all of this myself .. I bought the Albins today!  The updated Albins is the ST6-LP (Low Profile) - it comes in a new custom billet casing that direct fits (no tunnel mods like previously).  It is offered with a custom HyperTune shifter.  

I priced up the Albins, Samsonas, Holinger and PPG. Albins is the most expensive, Holinger and Samsonas about the same and the PPG was the cheapest.

That Albins box is bloody impressive....

Please report back on how it goes, any issues etc. as that surely must now be the gun sequential to have.

Awesome! Thanks for sharing. I ended up going with the Albins as well. Sure was the most expensive but I do plan on pushing the motor to around 12-1300hp hence the decision.

Well done mate!  Congrats.?

Just remember that Albins are now focusing more of their time and energy on the defense side of their business and therefore their customer support has dropped off in recent times, this is not hearsay but firsthand experience from a workshop that I do part time work for. Just something to keep in mind.
