The engine/trans in it is a later 225/904. We put a Hurst Promatic cable shifter in it.

Ok.thanks. Saw what happened to EVR at NOLA. Figured I would look and see what I have for spare parts. Such as trns, converter, flexplate, etc. Probably wouldn't bring them down, unless you think I should, but I'm close enough do do a quick parts run if necessary.

That's awesome Charlie! I am considering throwing a spare engine/trans on the trailer... I have one out of an 85 D100. I saw a video of it running... engine and trans are separated and no converter, but should be decent spares if needed...

I would have concerns about a 7 1/4 on a road course. I have aa 3.91 SG I have been building. Still need to set the gear pattern. I'll see if I can get bthe time to get it done, in time for spare. That is the only BBP limited slip rear I have. Most of my rears are either SPB, open or spool.

We ran a 7-1/4" open diff for a couple races with no problem, but I suspect the Toadracer will be putting down faster lap times than we did back then...

Not at Sebring. It’s just a stock motor that’s been sitting for 8-9 years.

Charlie, any chance you can scour your 904 collection for some V8 clutch drums before Sebring? I'm still looking for a set to build up a proper race transmission.

Are you still using the early small input shaft, in the trans?

Yes, everything's original to 1964. As far as I know, the V8 drums are the only thing I'll be able to easily swap in.
