Disadvantages of the TL-80NF gearbox

  • At first, the gearbox bothered me with jolts, jerks and delays when switching;
  • Then new firmware appeared and most of these problems are no longer relevant;
  • And increasing the volume of lubricant helps to completely get rid of the jerky operation of the gearbox;
  • Also, the oil in this transmission gets dirty quickly, so change it often;
  • Keep the cooling system clean, this also greatly affects the service life of the gearbox.
