Yeah, the only way to get a manual to live is to spend a lot of $$$$$$. You would need something like an Albins with a torsion bar input.
We tried Brian, but we we don't have the funds to make it happen! It's been a frustrating few years but we just want to have fun and get a checkered flag, so we caved and went the TH 400 route.

Yeah, we were starting to look into carbon/carbon clutch disks to find something with just enough grip while having just enough slip! They start at $5k a piece for a consumable part! Yep! Nope!🤣

Those TQ limiting clutches bring there own set of issues also. AGM had one on there class 1. Needed a special housing with 2 fans to keep it cool. The T bar input shat is way more effective. I also have made a T bar drive shaft, but it's a little late for that.....

Getting closer! Headed to Arizona a couple weeks ago and had REF Headers work their magic in a small space! Real stoked with the outcome and it was all built in a day!

nice, but the fun begins with isolating the toasty header heat😬💥
I agree, we plan to run a ducting hose from the front onto the header to help move the heat out of there. The only difference to our old headers as far as heat were the old ones were ceramic coated.

Installed the ArtCarr shifter for the slush box! Never thought I would see one of those in our truck! Decided to go minimalistic and not build a complete center console as this is a race truck and we don’t need any cup holders!😳🤣

Had to build a new carrier bearing mount for the new all metal carrier bearing. It also needed to clear the 18” @magnaflow muffler! We finished it last night (or so we thought) and bolted it in. Found that it flexed too much! Pulled it out and added a few pieces to take all the flex out of it!

Mounted up our new Haltech ic-7 dash! Should make keeping track of all our temperatures and pressures easy!
