Went out last night to my usual stomping grounds, on the way tranny starts zing, zing, zinging, wont grab. :eek: Head back home call tranny builder. Run through several tests to assess issue, 2-4 band gone. Tranny guys says WOW :eek: The Band used in your Transmission is the Best Band available for your HP/TQ application. However, we all know that parts manufactured all have their flaws. That is why they are Warranteed. Your build with bands,Torque Delivery Kit, Harden Low/Rev. Sprag Race, Torrington Bearing, Harden Input Drum all capable of handling up to 700 ft lbs of torque. We have a defective part here.


Upside - no cost to resolve. Stand up guy top shelf builder.
Down side - not sure if can bw fixed before cruise. Builder needs access to a hoist to re & re tranny, as all hoists booked next week. Regardless will be at cruise in some capacity.

I am not alone, rumour is another high performer Nova broke this week too :rolleyes:

Thank guys for offers for rides and cars.

This is just one of those weak link or defective part issues.Novasrus. Yes I have a tach and a shift light for rpm management :)

Good news is car goes to the shop Monday, and builder can have it all week to resolve.

Cheers
