http://www.performanceautowerks.com/catalog/product_info.php/werksracing-f35-stage-transmissions-p-2057I have the same concern. It seems one of the most common failures on these transmissions is 3rd gear. I know fuel curves can be adjusted as mitigation. I found a website of a company a while back that custom builds these transmissions and also sells upgraded parts; they actually had pictures of a transmission apart and were pointing out all of the weak spots internally. Can’t remember the company’s name though.
Jesus I don’t know what picture you’re looking at...That Wang looks fantastic! Real carbon fiber?
That’s basically my thought. It’s kinda like the difference between drag and roll racing. Drop the hammer from a standstill and I bet it blows, hopefully it won’t one you’re moving.The biggest enemy to the transmission is torque, not horsepower. That torque can either be developed in the form of weight, or very sticky tires. I’m running a V-6 sandrail with a modified 091 VW bus transmission that is barely rated for the torque output of my engine. The tires spin nicely out here in the desert. I refuse to take it to the dunes, because as soon as I hook up hard using paddle tires in the sand, that transmission will probably come apart.
This is the Saab turbo. It’s really a practice run to make sure everything works and get it tuned on lower boost, this engine will remain stock except for injectors. The other engine is getting pistons and valves/valve springs for the Garrett turbo.Did you already put the pistons in? Are you planning on upgrading the valve springs?
