The Good, Bad and Ugly Transmission


Recommended Posts

G-force, Jerrico, Jasper, or race prepped Tex T-101 would be my guess.  Jerrico would be my choice with mid valley engineering shifter.  Use some of the spare points for a trans swap I guess

I doubt it, they have already been down that road of racing transmissions years ago with Blitzvinning. My guess is a regular old Muncie or T10.

Lets be clear that "stock" in this situation does not mean that every part in or on it is the part that came from the factory.

 

There is a picture of the trans from the camaro floating around.  

 

It is VERY nice indeed.  At the very least, it has been meticulously rebuilt to a very high degree.

With the resources that team has. I would be surprised if it wasn’t rebuilt to an extremely high degree. 
They know how to build a quality race car

That's why I have always been surprised by the reliability issues they seem to be plagued with. While generally fast, they do drop out of a lot of races.

 

Curious what the issue was at the Glen.

They paid no swap points, so assuming they were running a fuel cell over 22 gallons, it should have been a Borg Warner. 74 or earlier had a Muncie trans, but a smaller fuel tank. I don't recall ever counting fuel jugs going in, but based on how far they went making that power while being carbed...
