Its in the takeoff that does the most harm... All of that torqe trying to spin the parts in the tranny from a standstill if a lot of force to be dealt with, especially when the trans is rated for 280-285ft lbs and we have seen many of these engines dyno 330ft lbs... I'd say thats some pretty serious force for a FWD trans...

I'd have to say that means Sol does not do these long burnouts, floor it from every single light.... Basicly he doesn't beat the holy batman out of the trans, but he likes to put the hammer down once in a while..

Do you think I would have all these mods to drive the speed limit?

Exactly. I don't do burnouts. I spin the tires from launching, but it'* not something I do all the time.

I'm scared to look at the bottom of my pan, the fluid colour seems to be currently okay though

I have done some burnouts... But I try not to do it very much either... Then again I do not have the mass force of an SC'd 3800 either...lol... But the pan and the fluid have come out with minor amounts of friction material... I still say for 142K that pretty good... Hope the trans will get me to 200,000....

Not really. I beat my car a LOT. I really don't want to, but the temptation is great. I go WOT a good 2-6 times daily. I rarely roast my tires though. They were expensive.

My current set of tires are Touring tires.... All of the others have been performance tires... I figured I would get a little more life out of the touring tires... Um its not happening... I'll go back to the performance tires when these are finally finished...

On Topic,

Most all of these FWD transmissions will have a minor amount of friction material in the bottom of the pan when you change the fluid, this is normal... Most will look quite good...

Fantastic, Have you ever performed a tranny service on your 4T65-E, if so how did the pan look?

Nope. I do believe the fluid is OEM too. When I bought the car at 107K the trans slipped a bit into OD. Now at 120K it never does. I will do a service with Nate (LakevilleSSEi). I'll see what metal the pan has to offer.

WOW I have had absoulutly no luck with my tranny. I've went though 2 trannys and still have the same problem. I start her up put her in drive but it won't engage unless it reaches operating temp or when I (I know its not the best) floor it until it clicks into 2nd gear and takes off. Its a 93 n/a bonnie with the non heavy duty tranny. Anybody feel free to help me solve this problem that'* plagued me for months.

Start a new thread on this problem... Explain all of the problems you have had, and everything you have done to correct for this problem... And we'll see what we can pic apart...
