    haha you and i both. we broke the ring and pinion friday in the race car so we've been at the shop ditching the drop out 12 bolt center section for a true 9" center section. should have some time tonight and thursday morning to work on my car. it starts and runs fine i just need a free night to finish all the nitrous panel install and the purge line. basicly a ton of wire to run and a line to glue in

    not really sure if they were street gears or pro gears. if they were street gears they are a harder material and they just crack when hit with that kind of power. if it was a pro gear it was just over powered. they were 12 bolt gears

    Do I hear gears shattering and cursing due to a T5 in one form or another grenading from the shock of a high RPM launch with a hard engagement clutch?

    No go... Got about half way about 10 miles of straight white knuckle driving. I pulled into a Pizza Hut and waited for it to dry up. Just to much rain in the quick shower we had. Wasn't worth wrecking the car to make a pass when it's 90+ out

    It's been raining all week pretty much and all weekend also in the forecast... So time to do more work. Finally dropped the tank to put the SVT focus pump in it. Turns out it had a 190lph walbro already (gss242)
