dont tell anyone this but i want an 85 lx fox body for the longest time but of corse it would be powered by a chevy motor :shhh: :shhh: :shhh::shh: :shh:Well what can I say. I am not brand loyal by any means. I have had them all and had several of each. LOL Had to beat a little fox body for price and preformance.
OK I won't tell anyone. I will make sure I don't tell my buddy that has a 92 LX that has an LSX in that you are going to take his idea.dont tell anyone this but i want an 85 lx fox body for the longest time but of corse it would be powered by a chevy motor :shhh: :shhh: :shhh::shh: :shh:
I've been told by several trans builders this is a very bad idea. Can't tell you specifically why but I'm sure someone here knows the technical reason.I put the car in neutral when I go through the lights.
lots of places make a valve body that freewheels in 1&2, and i believe this corrects the exploding problem. only engine-brakes in third, and when you let off the gas in 1 or 2 it coasts. I run TCI's version in a reverse pattern, with a hurst pistol grip quarter stick. I had a quicksilver i really liked for street driving, but I'm very pleased with my quarter stick. I like the lockout features, but i think they could be a PITA if i drove it everywhere.I believe the internidiate drum will spin at 2.5 times as the direct drum. So in 3rd gear at a 1:1 ratio and your spinning 6000 RPM's the intermidiate drum will shoot up to 12,000 RPM's and kaboom!
I have done it for as long as I've had an automatic, but after hearing about this and doing some research, it looks like I will be changing that.I used to, for years I would kick into neutral with no ill affects. Then I saw and heard of the mayhem and decided I didn't want to become a victim. :no:
