Gearstar's owner, Zack Farah, got his start over 25 years ago at Tristar International where they were manufacturing upwards of 100 transmissions each day and 300 converters. While bulk production was Tristar's bread and butter, the portion of the work on high performance transmissions drew Zack's interest

Car Racing Transmission
"The high performance or racing transmission customer is building his pride and joy," explains Zack. "The demands placed on these machines is a lot different from those placed on the family car. Realizing that at that time very few companies were offering anything other than off-the-shelf transmissions from the big manufacturers, Zack split from Tristar and started Gearstar with the goal of building the best high performance transmissions specialized to the individual needs of the most discerning customers.
From the many builders at his previous company, Zack selected the best 11 builders. He then cut those 11 down to just the top five.

Zack Farah, Gearstar's owner, got his start over 25 years ago at Tristar International where they were manufacturing upwards of 100 transmissions and 300 converters each day, but it was the racing and high-performance market that gave him the most satisfaction. "The high-performance or racing transmission customer is building his pride and joy," Farah explains.

According to Farah, all performance transmissions can benefit from a cooler, as heat is the number one enemy of an automatic. The cooler core should be mounted in front of the radiator, where it will receive direct airflow under all driving conditions. "If that is not possible then a cooler with and integrated fan can be mounted along the frame as long as it has direct airflow. We recommend at least 20,000 GVW capacity cooler for our level 1 and 2 packages. Our level 3, 4, and 5 packages require a 30,000 GVW cooler due to the more aggressive driving conditions they will encounter. Farah adds that "optimal operating temperature for transmissions is 175° F."
