Is it possible to add an extra gear to a gearbox?  I have a Targa LX with the 2 speed automatic so I was just wondering if I could somehow add in one more for a little extra top end... OR.. Does anyone else have some suggestions?  Thanks.

AH, I meant I want a little more top end without frying my engine up(faster and lower rpms). ;)  Thanks.

Nope, there is only room for two gears. But you can get aftermarket gears that are bigger at http://www.50cc.nl/frameset_eng.htm. Also you can get a bigger front sprocket wich will also increase speed.

oops, also forgot to let you know that with the above mods your acceleration will suffer. Do you have an aftermarket exahust? If not that also will increase speed and boost acceleration.

Yep, I have the 70cc kit which is why I'm worried about blowing it up. ;)  Thanks for the quick reply!  I'll definately look into it.

BTW, Just curious here... Is there another gearbox out there somewhere with 3 gears that could somehow bolt to the frame?  I doubt it, but thought I'd ask.
