    Yeah I know....it has been two months since the event in October from E-Town, but I have been all over the world for work and just too busy to get to these. They aren't the best, but it was all the time I had to edit. The brain wanted to do more, but the clock did not cooperate. It was also difficult to get footage as I was trying to run SFWD. I had some clutch issues so I had to pull my tranny in between qualifying and I broke my throttle body shaft after qualifying round one. Oh well that's racing. Also, my camera died so I didn't get Tony's final run in here.....sue me. :p

    Watch them in high quality for better video y0.

    We had just over an hour to get the tranny out of the car, spool out, replace with a quaife, clean out, reassemble and reinstall. We had to switch axles too since the other ones were setup for the spool. He broke or twisted the axles on every pass. Broke both of them on the 1st qualifying pass. On the third, twisted them and we had our only back up set. Second round, we had a set on loan from CFT I think. Twisted those and had to get another set for the final round. His car just kills parts hooking up that good. Car went in the 5s in the 1/8 mile. Crazy.

    15k at stake....we had a few extra tranny parts on hand to say the least. Gotta start somewhere....do the rebuild yourself if you don't want to ship it to me. www.helminc.com and buy the service manual. Everything you need step by step is in there.

    He'll most likely either use a bigger sized imact, and if you stripped it out, either either use a easy out, or just drill it off. and if it comes down the very last resort, cutting torch and be verrrrrrrry careful. If you have the tools, and the knowledge, you can do almost anything you want...


    but in the case of this high money racing... money counts too... and experience.. lots of experience..

    Outlaw street, yeah I think he's the first(8.99 I believe).

    As far as Pro goes, I believe they're well around the low 7s.
