How is a ST205 tranny better than a ST185 RC tranny?

Postby bitterman » Wed Dec 24, 2014 5:17 pm

I would like to know in what way is it a better tranny.
I have a st185 tranny had grinds the third gear when up shifting so I swapped to a ST205 tranny. But this new tranny feels like it needs a rebuild... So both sucks... I was wondering which one is more worth the rebuild

transmission final drive is before power split so rear ratio is not a factor.
