Everyone is entitled to their opinion but, these people who don't think it's the coolest class one ever are wrong. Maybe it's because they grew up under power lines or they got dropped on their head when they were babies? I feel sorry for them. Iconically sorry even.it's a little bit of a bummer that in the end the convo here and online ended up being combative instead of celebratory.
The LVDC Valley Performance cars were one of the first class 1 cars with the 5 speed Albins over 15 yes ago and have been torque converters for near 15Sheila has a bulkhead front suspension. 3.5” in front and 4” in rear. Nobody was running a custom LS engine with DBW 12 years ago. Except for Shiela. Chris also helped Albins to develop their 5 speed to use a torque converter instead of a clutch assembly. Sheila has had that set up for over 12 years.
The 5mm bolts fell out of the air operated ram that shifts the trans, apparently the manufacturer doesnt believe in lock tight. They are fixing it now, she will be racing tomorrow.James Dean is putting the smackdown on Sheila currently. Sheila looked good at the start!
I’m curious. Do you have proof to support this claim? Sheila has also had an Albins since she was new, back in 2007. From my understanding, Albins didn’t have a torque converter 5 speed until Sheila’s Albins was modified to run a TC. I prepped her during her glory days, so I know her well.The LVDC Valley Performance cars were one of the first class 1 cars with the 5 speed Albins over 15 yes ago and have been torque converters for near 15
