Bill, are you and Dan going to do the work on the trans? If it'* complicated, wouldn't it be cheaper instead of driving out there to buy a ticket for one of the Intense guys to come out for two days and fix it? He could fly in in the morning, diagnose, Intense overnights the parts for the next day, next day he installs and then back on the plane.

I got a phone call today from Bill, "So when are you doing your next magnet order?" lol

Damn Bill, that'* quite a load of metal in there. I'm glad your motor is still working. I'm not alone when I say I don't want to hear of another motor going south. But I'm really sorry to hear about the trans! That'* totally unexpected. I'm sure INTENSE will take good care of you. But it certainly must be a PITA having issues come in the way of enjoying the Gen V.

I'm curious to know what exactly happened in that tranny so soon.

Did anyone pick up on the fact that it appears the kr might have been found? The KR was driving me nuts.

Chris..nothing too technical is going to happen. Simply remove trans and go from there.

Again, to reiterate... I have the utmost respect and appreciation for the Intense crew and their work ethic. Not one doubt about Tim'* trans building abilities or that this was put together properly.

Lots of you wonder how I haven't lost my cool with this situation from the first motor going south. It'* very simple.. things happen and typically..they happen to me. No one died..a mechanical item broke.

Paul..if I had another trans in my possesion, it would already be most of the way back in.

Anyone that has visited, knows better than to mention something that they need to get done.

Bill, yes I realized this may have been your KR. If a tranny swap is all you need to have no KR, I guess it'* not too bad....right? lol

Best of luck getting it taken care of asap.

And you think ZZP hasn't had a few transmissions go BOOM? Low miles, too.

ZZP isn't the pill you need to cure INTENSE, and INTENSE isn't the pill you need to cure ZZP.

INTENSE will take very good care of billboost. No problem at all. He WENT to INTENSE instead of ZZP because of the poor support he was getting from ZZP. He made his choice based on his own experiences.

Back to your regularly scheduled programming now.

I agree with you on that Bill. Looks like that 2% throttle KR maybe be figured out very soon. Atleast with the car out of your hair you'll be able to relax a little. I'll have a stiff drink for you again tonight
