    nope, it's a fixed ratio, but you could use it with a cvt so you have a gas and go rig, one of the main reasons to use the rpm is the reverse as I'm shure you know, the others are is doesn't stick out the bottem so you don't lose any ground clearence, and they weigh less then the honda trannie, one the other side their kinda pricy, anyway hope this helps

    RPM gearbox is available in a bunch of ratio's to fit your car. It gives you a tight flange to flange distance for more travel out of your CV's, ground clearance, reverse, maintains a live axle so traction is not lost and turning is good in dirt. Gives you nuetral on the gearbox. Can provide a input brake for lighter cars or it can be used as and output for additional alternator. When you look at all the benefits it gives you, it's really not that expensive. I think they sell for around $2k.
