I have been desert racing for Can Am for over 5 years now... Transmissions is not one of the components that historically fail.. sure the Max (and I have a prerunner and a racer Max) and they do not have issues that Im aware of...the Max is geared slightly lower to compensate (so I was told by race engineering)

He he had a different problem.... The belt would brake first, way before the internal gears. With that in mind. These things are not really meant for towing.... But, belt is always the first issue
