I know how you feel... sort of. I have had a few delays in my build too. I am determined I will be driving it to the Fest in August though! (Maybe I just jinxed myself.)
No jinxing spoken here... Your car will be ready soon...

Corey spoke with RSG this am... We also got some more information from RKT56 that they can get 9310 gears from their provider. 9310 Gears and shafts would really solidify this thing...

It's pretty amazing...

In addition to the trans, this is another piece I'm looking at... I will be getting an SFI approved bell housing and mid plate... From whomever I end up buying from...

Or you can join us in the 4L80 club, and at the track you'll never have to go to 4th gear!
I appreciate it Russ, but you know how hard headed I am about my trans...

T-, It's the original transmission that we have been in at least 4 times now... Originally we changed the blockers, sliders and synchros... we have progressed to this time we changed to a 9310 Output shaft with the support bearing, a new input shaft and quite a few other new parts...

With Corey talking to several vendors today,the consensus isthat wither the case or the bell housing is warped/bent etc...

I believe the BP has 9310 gears and is face plated... I've considered face plating the gears and seen several videos of it... but not the way I want to go right now...

If need be, we will contact them... Corey has a couple of good friends there...
