If that tremec freshening holds up to your horsepower and DR's... your transmission guy needs to go to the top of the list of "Go To" professionals

I agree with that statement... It lights, he said the inside of the 6060 is pretty tough with a few parts...

Keep in mind that I broke the mainshaft in Pumpkin's tranny, with only 400hp at the rear wheels.

Yup, I can only imagine a defect in the forging would cause that though... Though I may be wrong...

We put a really ridiculously built TKO600 in the Firebird and I still worry about it. The 6060 is a great transmission. Drive it with no worries and if it does scatter, there are alternatives. The trials and tribulations of 'goin big...

Thanks for that Bruce,

I'm close to the point of worry free driving, no, this doesn't mean there won't be items broken, but like you said, it's part of the cost of going big...

MTCWBY had a great statement to me, he said the crazy people build the big cars and drive them so others can dream, and have something to talk about when something breaks....

I'm just trying to get to the point where I feel confident launching it and driving it like she wants to be...

Good news today, a friend and volunteer employee at Coreys shop and I were discussing my attempt for the 200+ standing mile run....

He has some "race" P-zeros that he can't use on his Corvette road race car... These are pure race tires, not street hibrids.. They are prety much unlimited on speed, and they are 305 18's. he is going to bring them and some wheels to test fit to my car.....he told me I was welcome to use them and that were super sticky but the sidewalls are too tall for his vette...

one problem taken care of...

Corey also mentioned some tricks for the mile run...

An alternate fuel tank... And a syringe.... 150 cc I think... Well, something about a shot and some high octane stuff... He's thinking somewhere in the 1150 to 1200 rwhp range....this will include a boost increase...we'll probably be around 18 lbs of boost... I can't wait.... We are looking at a spring run for now. As it stands my schedule won't allow for a fall run in October... and provided my schedule allows for a trip to the Fest III, I'll probably be on drag slicks rather than drag radials...

Well, Brandi is back... Still looking at a bug or two, but she seems to be shifting really smoothly... Time will tell at this point...
