Many vehicle enthusiasts from Indianapolis, Indiana, to Seattle, Washington, quickly associate the thought of any high performance automatic transmission with Ford, GM, and Mopar transmissions; however, Allison Transmission, known for their innovative technology, has transformed throughout the decades to excel at diesel transmissions. When it comes to medium and heavy-duty transmissions, torque converters, and controllers, Gearstar Performance Transmissions offer decades of knowledge for the detail necessary in custom-built transmissions according to the specifications of the engines, horsepower and torque output, rear gear ratio, and the application for which they will serve. Anyone from Portland, Oregon, to Concord, North Carolina, looking for a commercial transmission rebuilding company will find all the power and experience necessary with one phone call to Gearstar Performance Transmissions.
Allison Transmission is an American Manufacturer of medium and heavy-duty commercial transmissions that are specified by over 250 vehicle manufacturers throughout the world. They are utilized in a vast array of segments — including bus, refuse, fire, construction, distribution, military, and specialty applications. Allison founded and built the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 1909 and funded several racing teams; however, the start of World War I saw them transitioning into machining parts, tools, and masters for the Liberty airplane engine. After the war, they entered a car in the Indianapolis 500 and won, but they then turned their attention to aviation. GM purchased Allison Transmission in 1928 to take advantage of their aviation expertise, with their work on the V1710 12-cylinder aircraft engine, making them a major force in aviation. Approaching the end of World War II, they turned their attention to developing a transmission combining range change, steering, and braking for tracked military vehicles. After the war, Allison Transmission designed, developed, and manufactured the first fully automatic transmission for heavy-duty commercial vehicles — for the likes of delivery trucks, city buses, and locomotives.
Any industry from Seattle to Concord looking for a commercial transmission rebuilding company can call Gearstar Performance Transmissions to accommodate their specific requirements, whether it’s for work on a diesel engine for a heavy-duty off-highway vehicle or for a large truck. One of five expert technicians follows each project from beginning to end to ensure the perfection in each custom-built high performance automatic transmission’s detail.
