The Quaife QBE60G heavy duty In-line 6-speed RWD Sequential Gearbox is a direct replacement upgrade for the popular Ford Type 9 transmission and since its launch in 2008 has become the market leader in this sector.
A high strength 80mm shaft centre design with all alloy casings enables QBE60G to handle up to 375bhp, yet it can be installed into a Mk1 / Mk2 Ford Escort or
Caterham 7 without transmission tunnel modifications.
QBE60G features a modular gear cluster, allowing easier interchangeability of gear ratios and fewer moving parts, while a drum type sequential gearchange system is allied to an open face dog design on both gear and drive disc. This produces a positive, ultra-fast gearshift – an optional Quaife approved ‘intelligent’ semi-automatic paddle shift is also available.
Free running gears are supported by needle roller bearings to ensure a robust geartrain, while a choice of ratios and numerous gear lever position options allows customers a wide scope for optimising QBE60G to suit their individual requirements. Weighing just 38 kilos, QBE60G is ideal for rally and race use in Mk1 and Mk2 Ford Escort, Ford Sierra, Caterham, Westfield and numerous rear wheel drive kit cars.
Both helical and straight-cut (spur) gears are available on the QBE60G. The former enables the QBE60G to appeal to ‘fast road’ customers where gear noise is a critical issue.

sequential gearbox include:-
• Direct replacement for Ford Type 9 gearbox
• Ultra-fast sequential gearchanges
