Default Turbo and the Diamond Drive?

I recently bought a used 2007 Turbo M1200 162". This sled has the original mechanical reverse DD with 60/60 gears. The previous owner said he has never had it apart, just changed the oil religiously with no problems. I had a chance to run the sled last weekend and it runs out of gear right away...I'm at sea level. I want to put some more gear in it but I don't want to waste money on a set of BDX gears for this case if it's prone to failure and I've read about many failures on this site with this case with stock M1000's.

Curious what you turbo guys are running for DD's? Have most of you gone with the Diamond Lite drive or do you just keep a spare on hand? I do have a spare 2007 M1000 DD.

Thanks!

I ride a TM1000 race gas sled. The original mechanical reverse DD grenaded with less than 100km on 16lbs of boost!! Went DD Lite with High Torque gears and never looked back.

I've had great luck with my 07. It did fail after two years and 1500 miles. I just finished putting black diamond gears in it as well as a larger bearing. If you maintain them and don't mash the throttle over a whopped out trails you will be fine. I ran 12-14 pounds on my m8 turbo. I can't deal with no reverse so I'm sticking with the stock dd.

If you do want to keep reverse but want to put in a Diamond Drive Lite you can install a 09 and up ECU and have reversing engine and lose 11lbs. of rotating mass.
And I just happen to have one for sale....

If you bought a 09 ecu and 09 helix you could have electronic reverse.

The problem with the 09 ECU is I don't think it will plug into the 07 main harness? My 07 ECU has two different size connections. I happen to have a main harness for a 09 M8 and the connections to the ECU are both the same size, both big. Maybe 08 is different?
