Just an engine reaching the rev-limiter and no tranny! I had reverse which was about worthless as two tits on a nun trying to put it on a trailer in heavy winds. OUwantsome and some cat with a big gold chain around his kneck and everyone else on the docs called us nuts to go trailer it.
I am driving up the river with Scott from Mercury Racing saying "nothing" and Keith from CK/Baker in the engine compartment crawling around screaming back to me that the tranny was never properly installed. What a f'king circus. I am not a happy man when it comes to blown tranny's and mis-rigged electrical systems. I feel your pain Stecz, and soon some other people will feel ours!!!
