Default broke automatic now.

I had the car out a few times already, today I had 1.5 to kill before soccer games. I laid into the car real hard( racing a rice rocket) hit second and broke the sprag.( I think). I only have 1st and 3rd, second does not hit hard, sometimes it feels like it is in neutral. I had a hd 34 element, guess I need the pro mod 36 element sprag. The fat girl must be making some bacon. Left marks as long as I am on the gas.
The bike pulled up next to me at the light and gave me a big thumbs up at least.

The more power the expensive chit you need. SMH

I've put this in a few builds that flipped the 34 element sprags, works real well, have one in my variable pitch 400 with brake. It prevents drum wobble which is a sprag killer.

I didn’t put the center support in mine, I believe (been in the car at least 9 years since freshened) I have a 34 element spray in mine, no issues yet. I black track all over the place w that thing. Lol. Gotta wonder why one holds up and the other doesn’t but your heavier than I am too. That may be the difference. Or maybe your making more HP?

lmao, The Pontiac torque is killer. I hope it's just the sprag. Tranny is out now, when Charlie comes over he is good with auto trannys, he is going to pull it apart for me.
I will keep everyone posted. Glad I got a bolt together converter!! there was some metal chunks in the pan!
