    He did have some trouble with the engine blowing, but it is all built now.

    He was having clutch problems so he installed the URD TwinDisc and that is the last I have heard from him.

    Jokes aside, that look properly sorted out. I would love to see more details.

    Ya there are some you tube videos of him running it down the drag strip. It was nasty fast. Looked like high 10s but big time traction issues.

    I have never heard of the stock trans blowing up.

    The problem has been the syncros that do not allow for fast shifting in this sport truck. If you drive it like a farm tractor it is fine.

    There have been some bent and broken shift forks, but the big issue is the damn syncros.

    Has anyone heard of one of these transmission blowing up from to much torque being put through it??

    Ya syncros are def the soft spot. I have heard of a few ppl that have lost a gear or two completely but not sure exactly what all that entails. My tranny likes to kick out of gear for 2nd only when I downshift. Otherwise it's just the syncros are shit makes it very difficult to get a quick strong gear change in higher rpms.
