Should be a good day out mate. Still wondering if I should run it down the track or not.

Race or not ,that's  up to you .  I know your engine is fine as is your diff ,and now you have the shelby traction bars fitted ,no axle hop .    The clutch I don't know but if its slipping don't bother . Gear box ? .

Yeh gear box is noisy now in all gears been getting worse. Sometimes under load when pushing the gear into 3rd it feels like the gear stick is pushing too far foward almost as if I have snaped it off.

Took the family out for this yesterday was a great show!
Saw some nice cars and quite a few stangs running down the quarter too!

Hey Glen - was that you in the Granny spec Red 66 with the black vinyl roof running 12's?

If it was that car looks like it is really well set up and runs very nice - sounded crisp! :burnout:

Yes it was but it wasn't going to well  (1) it was so hot. (2) the torque converter was playing up till it blew up and took the auto with it   :cry:  got stuck down the end of the track with no gears bugger its a long way from the Gold Coast .

Spewing sorry to hear about that I must have missed your last run - I saw you lined up against the XD that lifted the front wheels every time he launched, he bounced towards the wall and had to get out of it. By the time he gathered it up you had him at line!

Saw a corvette out the front when we left on the side of the road looked like he had broken an axle - so you got the car home in the end? 

And yeah - how hot was it :thud:

And my best run of the day starting at about the 27 second mark but watching the first bit is worthwhile

I was lucky I knew  someone that took his 67 camaro up on a car trailer so we put my car on the trailer and he drove the camaro home .    :bow: to him for his help .  And the box and converter are out and the converter is scrap metal . .

You will need more than a converter and box to even get close to the XD  :grin:
