Where does the trans go? In the back seat of the Bonne?

The team at INTENSE is busy doing everything they can to have it ready and make things happen. I should know what happened soon enough. The first thoughts before it got opened were the torque converter may have gone bad and over time that material caused issues. However..it'* speculation.

The end result is that it'll be back soon and ready to head off to the track for Saturday. Gonneville and Petraman are holding out in Ohio until noon in hopes of having it in the back of the truck when they leave.

Thank you to everyone involved for your assistance, diligence and hard work.

BTW.. Gonneville is driving out in his fathers truck.

Leaf... read the last 10 pages of this post. The unusual already happened. That was followed by the statistically improbable and that was trumped recently by the nearly impossible.

Got the call.

Problem appeared with the LSD. Which..to my knowledge has never happened before. Most of that time I was running a reasonably stock motor with headers and a 3.4 pulley. Now that I have a cam and Gen V, I am still not putting down the power of many other people running this same LSD. It'* simply the way things can happen to me. That'* a big factor as to how and why I'm able to take it in stride. It happens... fix it and move on.

It looks like the trans will probably be done in time for Gonneville to pick it up and it should be here tomorrow evening. Through long hours and extra efforts, the INTENSE team will have me up and running for most of the NEBF meet.

This type of situation is where it'* good to know the company will stand behind it'* product and not only make things right, but go out of their way to make things go as smoothly as possible.

Thank you again, Todd, Tim and Scott. Can't say that enough

yep..my only concern is being in the truck in Manhattan. Being a truck driver..I'm sure he'll secure the load and no one will be able to lift it on their own. It'* the other drivers I worry about..lol

While that would make sense..I doubted it based on the reliability of the Gen 3 LSD overall. It has a great track record.
