    Life beyond synchros...

    Regardless of torque capacity, does one really want to limit their shift speed?

    The bigger the turbo, the more important this topic becomes.

    You should buy a samsonas.

    If you placed a 50% deposit up front, how long would you be willing to wait for one?

    I've been informed it's 9 to 12 months...from someone who currently uses one. (An owner/vendor)

    You should have placed the order 9-12 months ago.

    In that price range, I might look at the Tremec T56 Magnum. I like the top loader shifter since it won’t lose the geometry due to flex of motor and trans mounts under load/windup.

    Are you referencing the ZF cased gear set, or the 5 speed Sequential?

    I was looking at the Sequential, which comes in at $11k.


    More recently I've been talking to GForce and Liberty about drag specific gearboxes....

    For drag specific use the Ford C4 or the Chevy 3 speed others are working on adapting.

    I would guess the drag racing season is shorter on PEI than in NH. If you have to do all the safety stuff we have to do here, the car you don’t drive very much now will become a car you barely ever drive.

    Thanks to a gluttonous global economy over many decades, and a complete disregard for environmental consequences, PEI might have it's summer drag racing season expanded from 4 to 6 months! Woo hoo!

    The TH400 is still under consideration, but I am more focused on how fun the car is to drive, vs how outright quick it is. I still want to take it on road courses, and then there's my unfulfilled ambition from the black car of doing Targa NFLD.

    Shift speed.

    I'm looking to go to a dog box, with non-H pattern shifting.

    After a few revisions, this is the gearing that I'll be using:

    3.391
    2.186
    1.670
    1.295
    1.000

    Diff is 3.62
