The P549 gearbox is one of Xtrac's legacy products, which whilst not currently in production, spares and technical support are still available upon request.

Xtrac’s P549 mid-engine longitudinal transaxle is a GT specific derivative of the durable P386D Daytona gearbox and has been optimised for all categories of Sportscar racing where performance and reliability are required.

Drive is fed from Daytona proven gear ratio’s mounted behind the axle centre line, through a final drive hypoid spiral bevel gear set, with a larger hypoid than the previous 396 GT gearbox, allowing the engine to be mounted low in the car thus benefiting weight distribution without compromising drive shaft angles, or efficiency. 

Value engineered to meet strict cost constraints within the various GT formulae, this gearbox offers the highest quality at a cost effective price.
