Here we go again.......after finally getting the engine dialed in enough ( un tuned still ) to not self destruct, which by the way the previous engine issues were from the machinist NOT degreeing in the Cam Again transmission upgrades were needed as the current engine snapped a treated input shaft. 300M input shaft, 2750 Stall custom converter, 1" GMR chain & gears currently. Made it through 2 seasons without breaking anything........except melted rubber
.
Were off to breaking axles been looking for that trans fluid leak for a while.

Axles, you are the weakest link, goodbye.

Unfortunately as one thing is upgraded, the next weakest will break... the trick is building something where the weakest link is in an easy location to repair it when it breaks. Axles are a lot easier than input shafts at least

The real trick is finding stuff that doesn't break!

That's a catch too though - if you DO build it with stuff that won't break ever, and the engine doesn't care, you end up making more changes to give more power, and you end up back at square one with more random stuff breaking. Trouble is, if you've built everything else out of the strongest materials feasible, it ends up being things you wouldn't consider that break. Ends of crankshafts n' such.

Well you should build some really nice axles to handle those new upgrades on that tranny. Then you should make some more and offer them with your other parts, so I canhave some really nice axles for my car Just some pictures of your car at the dells run, Beautiful car!
