Fast starts, even with a small battery! WOSP Gear Drive Starters spin up fast, with less amperage pull on the battery and more torque than stock VW starters. Gear Drive Starters have a front bearing to support the drive gear so you do not need to worry about replacing the starter bushing. They run quiet, you can use a smaller battery, and they outlast traditional VW starters.
Gear Driven Starters eliminate the single biggest problem concerning VW starters. They rely on a thin bronze bushing mounted in the transmission housing to support the starter shaft and gear. VW starter bushings wear out fast when used in dirty off-road conditions, resulting in sluggish starts and shorted armatures.
Installing a Gear Drive Starter is your assurance of reliable fast starts, even with a high compression engine! Gear Drive Starters operate on 12 volts and are equipped with a standard 9 tooth drive gear.
