Thanks Scott!!! I'll get there. Not really into top numbers but its getting to be a lot of fun!!!! Might need to try your 37s if that's possible. After 150ish that's it..... This could get out of control and be to much fun!!!

You can shift whenever you want!! We have over 200,000.00 of R and D in theses babies and we are ready to release the first 8 units. They can take the abuse of what me and my 46 Skater can give them. Ive tried trannies in the past and they did not hold up. That's why we developed our own. Works great for parking and keeping your RPMs up in idle zones.The first four customers will receive free install and a 1 year parts and labor warranty. 316-648-2414 to order. ask for JIM LEE.
