Better strike me from the list Rob. Took the Rat to Paradise today and it looks like my transmission is toast. 1st to second shift is VERY long, lots of time in transition between gears and it got worse with each run. Shifts fine in normal driving but at wide open throttle it takes forever to go from one gear to the next with lots of slipping during the shift.

I’m sorry to hear that Brad. Is it still a push button or did you use a later transmission?

This real nice feller gave me what he said was a good PB if’n ya need it back. :wink:

It's a later model Rob. I knew this day would come for my $100.00 transmission, just came at bad time. Looks like good opportunity to learn to build a transmission.

Well, The race started at 9 and went late and then there was an oil down that closed the track down, and we did not get to run the finals. Hopefully we will get to run the final tomorrow. It’s late (almost 2am now) but here is what I remember:

Ryan and Lukus are in the finals.

Semi Finals
Ryan win vs Jeff
Lukus Bye

1/4 Finals
Jeff bye
Ryan win vs. Rick
Lukus win vs. Andrew

Round 1
Ryan win vs. Austin
Rick Bye
Andrew win vs. Isaiah
Jeff bye (jack Jr. Broke)
Lukus Bye (Jack III Broke)

Jeff “unofficially” set the AA Gas record with something around a 6.98. Such a cool dragster.

I’m sure someone else will have more details but thats all I got for tonight. :D

Check out the Mo-Kan race thread. Jeff’s HA/GR is there.

He’s our National points leader. :wink:
