Baker vs Korean RSD Tranny

Also trying to decide on which RSD tranny to purchase: The brand name Baker for big $$$ or the Korean knockoff. Apparently the Korean gears tranny is the same basic design as the LSD that has been out for a while, and wanted to know what you all thought. Better off spending the extra coin for the Baker? Is it worth more than 2x the price of the Korean version?

Is the Baker a smoother shift? Less problematic?

From what I've been told is the Baker uses the Korean Gears?
And Korean cut gears for others as well.
Hmmmm?

its hard to beat the RSD from Baker. Those guys are the BEST in the industry as far as anyone here is concerned. Gearing or not.

Baker is top notch! I run a Baker 6 speed with TP121. Do not use 6th much, but great tranny! Solid.

Baker is more $$$$ than Korean made knock off. Would rather spend my money with Baker. Great support.

Have ordered a Baker RSD 6 for new project.

Ah...also Korean gears in a Baker? I would suggest not, but give them a call.

No I was told that Baker uses gears that are cut by Korean?
And the next line was Korean is one of the World leaders in Gear Design and Manifacturing? I don't Know
Any one got a Price comparision.

Thought I would double check, so here goes:

Cases: all S&S except their FXR tranny which is a TP case
gears: Andrews
Shaft: Andrews
Side covers: manufactured by a company in Michigan

All items designed by Baker. 877-640-2004

South Korea is a huge power with respect to manufacturing and engineering in the world (I work for a Korean company). Many South Korean companies have companies from Japan worried in the electronics fields. They are aggressive.

It seems to me that Baker does not compromise quality for cost.

Cost- you can call (615) 444-6650 for price comparisons. Good luck!
