5spd FAIL. Broke it on my third pass at LVD this weekend...so it's done for the year. I won't know for sure until I pull the trans...but I think it's stuck in 3rd and/or 4th gears. Probably a shift fork.
Ran [email protected] first run with an easy launch. Second run I launched a little higher with a 2.21 60' and a [email protected]@92.3 with 4th gear problems. Last run it went [email protected] limping it off the track. The place was packed so I didnt get as many runs as I wanted, but I liked the clutch. The new braided slave line make it much better to beat on. The MPH was a little lower than I expected, but my 60's were getting better...and it probably would have done a 14.2 without trans trouble...maybe even better.
Anything is possible, i've seen a shift fork break before and several diff's shear the pin and shatter the case.
Every trans has it's limits, especially when you consider most HM282's have 100K+ miles on them... then we get our hands on them and beat them up with bigger engines and higher than rated shift points.
Nice times best i've ran with mine was a [email protected] but i did have a bad wheelbearing and the strip thats a few miles away isn't great either.I hoped to get a few runs in after my build but i need to break-in my new clutchmaster clutch so i don't think it will happen.But nice job eric
Turns out it was the 5th gear snap ring on the input shaft. 5th gear slid down the shaft and gave 4th too much room and the blocker ring came out of index. It got stuck in 4th and bound up tight. Easy fix though! Pressed 5th gear back where it should be and a new snap ring and shift rail cover will be here from VPI and I can reassemble.
