Gearstar Performance Transmissions is one of the first companies to manufacture high performance automatic transmissions to the specifications of the engines, horsepower and torque output, rear gear ratio, circumference of the rear wheel and tire, the weight of the vehicle, and the application which it is to serve. We are employee owned by people that have a true passion for what they do.

Gearstar Performance Transmissions manufactures world-class, high-performance automatic transmissions built to exact specifications. From start to finish, they are built by the industry's top expert technicians. We are employee owned by people that have a true passion for what they do, using only the best US made performance parts available. Each transmission is custom re-manufactured, built to specs - That means we don't have pre-built transmissions sitting on our shelves. In order to maintain consistency and quality during the building process, each and every transmission is handled by a single builder from start to finish. And every single transmission is put through rigorous qualification and inspection process, along with the fact that each transmission and converter are extensively dyno-tested as a package equivalent of 100 mph on the street where we check hydraulic pressures, temperatures, shift quality, converter stall and lock-up. We make sure each all shift points are at the correct RPM before engaging into the next gear. When you receive your transmission and converter package, you can be sure it is functioning perfectly, because we make sure it's perfect before it leaves our shop. Whether it is a Turbo 350 going behind a mild small block or a 4L85E built for a C5R 440 blown LSX, the same expert technicians will be working on either package. At Gearstar Performance Transmissions, we approach each project as if it was going into one of our own personal vehicles.

What a crazy first year it has been owning my own shop. I couldn't have done it without my wife, Katie Nelson, and all of our amazing customers. Over the course of this past year, we have gotten to help some of the top shops in the industry as well as work on some pretty cool projects in the shop. The next couple years should get even better as we have some more complex and one off projects to build. Would also like to thank John Lefler Jr. and Jason Millard for joining our team!

The Tallmadge Bulls , my friends from old Buckeye Gym Dr Matthew Pramik & Todd Lynch stopped in to visit, I go back over 30 years with these guys. That’s part of what I love about our shop, I used to live 2 miles up road, I went to school 1 mile away, many of my friends are still around or they stop in when visiting. We raced N Howard all through High School, every thing from Cutlass, Olds Ninety Eight, Camaro’s, Vegas, Mustangs, Chevelles, & even Hollys Red Chevette, if it had tires we raced it.

Busy Day at Gearstar, grateful for the trust our customers place in us, please be patient, unfortunately this is not a process that can be rushed, 8-9 hours is average build time for a transmission, another 2-3 of DYNO time.

Move Over...all of us want to go home too!

What is the Move Over Law?

Ohio's Move Over Law is designed to protect the lives of everyone who works on or uses our roadways. The law requires all drivers to move over one lane passing by any vehicle with flashing or rotating lights parked on the roadside.

The original law took effect in 1999 to reduce risk to law-enforcement officers and emergency responders. It was expanded in December 2013 to apply to every stationary vehicle with flashing lights, including road construction, maintenance and utility crews.
What if I can't move over?

The law recognizes that sometimes it is not safe or possible to move over because of traffic or weather conditions or because a second lane does not exist. In those situations, slow down and proceed with caution. Watch for people or objects that could enter your travel lane, and be prepared to stop.

How does the Move Over law differ from yielding the right of way to emergency vehicles?
Yielding the right of way to an emergency responder requires you as a driver to pull to the right-hand side of the road and stop when a law-enforcement officer, fire truck, ambulance or other emergency vehicle approaches using a siren, lights, or other warning devices. You must wait until the emergency responder(s) has passed by before you can resume driving.

How serious is the problem?
Across the nation, hundreds of people are killed or injured every year when they're struck by a vehicle after pulling over to the side of the road or highway. On average, these "struck-by" crashes kill one tow-truck driver every six days; 23 highway workers and one law-enforcement officer every month; and five firefighters every year. Tragically, stranded motorists are also struck and killed.

Can I be cited for failing to comply with the Move Over law?
Yes, and the issue is so serious that fines are doubled. Violators are fined 2 x $150 for the first violation (a minor misdemeanor), 2 x $250 for the same violation within a year of the first, and 2 x $500 for more than two violations in a year.

What types of roadways does the law apply to?
Ohio’s Move Over law applies to all interstates and state highways. It can be enforced by any law-enforcement officer, including state highway patrol officers, local police, and county sheriff's deputies.
