Man this this place is dead! Might as well close this place down! I remember back in 2002 this place had all kinds of conversations going on in the turbo section. Shame!

Nice race Jeff, cant wait to race you!

Got my junk back together tonight, ready for the track rental 10/16. If the weather holds up I post a time slip after.
Had a flywheel go bad, had to pull the tranny, get a ring gear on my aluminum flywheel. All good now.
Another member going to the rental too. Adam he has a 64 GTO.

Atco dragway, 10/16 S+K speed is holding the rental.

Default broke!!!!!!!!!

Sorry guys, nothing good to report. Went to the track and broke 1st pass.
Car spun 1st gear + tire shook, shifted 2nd it planted and pulled hard shifted 3rd and POP no 3rd, put it in 4th no 4th, coasted thru the traps and put it in 2nd. I had second and 1st gear. End of my day.
13.65 @89 mph just 1st and 2nd and coasting thru the finish line.

I am done with the stick shift, the automatic is going in over the winter. Unless you have big $$$$ sticks can not hold up in my tug boat.

Sorry to hear about they parts carnage. A good buddy of mine killed several 4 speeds until he went overkill in parts. Then he kept destroying clutches. He gave up and went to Auto. I know it takes fun out of street driving but it add fun in "lack transmission swaps in the garage".

Trans I want from Rossler is $5600. Sux that I don't have $5600. Not sure what I'll do next I just know that I can't afford it.

Default It's official

Well it is official, cut the old tunnel out, welded another in with no stick shift holes. Mounted the shifter. My custom console still fits (had to modify a little bit)
It's going to be automatic. I still don't know how I feel about it, but I know the car will be faster, and not break transmissions!

Looks good. What shifter is that? What kind of Auto are you going to? Adding a T-Brake?

That's a hurst shifter, going with a turbo 400, with a reverse valve body and a trans brake. It is a FTI unit with upgrades from CK.
