Nice truck indeed, although I'm not surprised they had tranny issues with the tranny I heard they're running with that engine :eek: like a bulldog beating on a parakeet!

I talked with Dan at the race about the tranny issue. He runs about 300HP small block ford with a T5 trans. The trans should be able to hold up to the HP, built mustangs have more than that and 0 problems. There is something that is not lined up or this tranny is not at all able to handle any off road miles.

Each one has blown up different so it's hard to pin point what is causing them to shit the bed. Hell he even put a TKO trans in that truck and blew it up!!!!!!

Sorry bud but a mustang driven on the street is a lot different than a truck racing in the desert. You're comparing apples to oranges.

No shit, wow thanks for the info!



I was refering to the amount of HP and TQ not the vehicle it's in. Obviously there is a problem if it blows up after 6 miles.
