Yeah, I didn't want to say anything, but most built transmissions cost double that.

That's what I was wondering as well. Being that cheap I'd be concerned about what kind of parts are inside.

I can't believe that touchless machine scratched your wheel... I guess we need to find a specific indivdual that knows how to use it. Eric was one kid I was impressed with there. When Don was manager he wouldn't let anyone touch mine... he came out and mounted them himself.

And Ughhhh on the curb... that sucks..:(

I think their machine is just a little different, and obviously doesn't work as well (or the guys aren't as good). I trust the Atascocita location, but since their machine was broken I had to go to the other one. I won't make that mistake again.

I found out today that my article will be in the December issue of Camaro Performers, which hits news stands around the end of October. I got to see a preview of some of the pics, and they're amazing. I spoke to the photographer and he's also going to make me a hard bound book with the pictures he took.

It looks like we'll be adding some meth as well.

So let's see how many things we'll have running through the car.

Gasoline (93 Octane)
Synthetic Oil
Transmission Fluid
Coolant
Brake Fluid
Race Gas (for nitrous)
Methanol
Nitrous

Did I miss anything?

Thanks! Man you wouldn't believe this crazy heat. My temp said 114 yesterday, and the Camaro is hating it. My Whipple won't stop whining (well I guess it does that anyway).

Wheels should be back today...hopefully good as new.

With as much as I've invested in the Camaro, I decided to retire it as a daily driver. The LSX will be done soon, so it will become my weekend toy. Here's what I picked up last night to use during the week.
