Re: Honest Power figures

it appears that my auto casing is cracked all the way through, could this be due to the transbrake? or why else would it do it?
thanks

Re: Honest Power figures

Its a possibility Transbrakes put an awful lot of stress on the drivetrain, who built the trans. By the wau awsome times at calder. What size stall are you running on the converter?

Re: Honest Power figures

the auto has been repaired and we also put a race style pan, there alot thicker and dnt allow the auto to bend and flex as much, im using a 5500 stall. when i was racing it thats what i luanched the car at on the last pass

Re: Honest Power figures

thick cast/billet style sumps are the go they fill up the big hole that is an auto's biggest strength issue (casewise), must of had a small flaw in the case. Good to hear you got it fixed
