Reluctor wheel bolted to input gear. 3.11 ratio GM Racing 1" chain and aermet input shaft in. Just have to get the channel plate and valve body cleaned up and the transmission will be back together.

Went to finish transmission today and found a problem. Noticed a roller missing from drivers side output bearing. Then I noticed this:



Cracked channel plate where the bearing presses in (bearing removed at this point). If you click the pic there is another photo in the gallery showing extent of the crack. Not sure if the crack caused the bearing failure or the failure caused the crack, but I assume they are related.

Good news is I found out where the roller I found in the pan came from. Waiting on replacement channel plate now. Dave at Triple Edge Performance is taking care of me once again, and trying to ship out a refurbished one tomorrow. I finished up the valve body, so it's ready to bolt together once I get the replacement. I am hoping to make a race on the 7th of June, getting short on time, still need to get this trans in and new drag radials on.

Still refuse to go bias ply eh? Sure seems alot cheaper than replacing transmissions every time you race.

I refuse to run bias ply, tried them one year. Drove terrible, and didn't get any better 60' than my street tires. As far as breaking, that goes with racing. I push my combination to be competitive in the classes I race in, sometimes too far, but I can live with that. I believe I have a combination now that will last, and will be ramping the boost in slower to help as well. If it breaks, so be it, this is what I drive/race for fun, I have other vehicles that I rely on for transportation.

Drove terrible? I guess if you are going to do autocross on the way to the track its bad but honestly I love the way bias ply rides aand reduces the twitchy steering at 150+mph.

It will almost always take some of the hit from your 60fts over a drag radial but its all in the name of input shafts.

Glad they work for you.

Planning on running yours this year at all? Noticed you didn't post any results last year after all your upgrades.

Personal preference???

Honestly I drive my car as much as I can, radials are much better driver tires. I want to be able to drive the car as hard as I want without having to worry about what's on the back. I also compete in a street car challenge that includes a cruise, 100' timed race, autocross and car show. All events must be done on the same rims and tires. Bias ply would not be competitive in that. I did not run front runners with the slicks, which may have helped the handling, but there is a reason cars don't come with bias ply tires anymore. I have tried a lot of things with this car, and this is what works for me.

I asked if you autocrossed it... All you had to say.

I also will say that the bias ply rears do NOT work without bias ply in the front, I made that mistake once.
