Why is it that all of a sudden SAS and Kyle are so hard on transmissions? I don't remember hearing of these problems in the old ARTS days? Whats causing them to fail at San Antonio? bouncing off the track? Not looking to stir it up, just curious about the past.

Believe me, we've kicked that around too. At first it was just SAS, but lately they have been failing at HMP and CTS also. I've heard several theories from the heat of the crossover headers, SAS being too rough, the F75 tire getting more grip. None of them seem like the smoking gun to me. Wish I knew.

 

It does seem like the ones holding up the best are the TCI aftermarket ones, but you have to pay a pretty penny for them.

If HMP would allow I would suggest bringing standard because I would like to see you run with us.

 

Thanks Gerald.

San Antonio was always hard on transmissions even back in the ARTS days. But trying to compare why is like trying to compare apples to oranges... SAS is bumpier you carry more speed which puts more stress on the chassis. More chassis flex = more problems with T350's cracking among other problems.

 

If we're going to ask for Standards at HMP why not Powerglides? Other than trying to keep to the original ARTS rules at HMP why not consider Powerglides as an option. Im kinda curious why the Powerglide has not been an option in the past...

Are these transmisions breaking cases? Do these trucks use a transmission mount on the tail housing?

Bruce, some break internally. Some have broken the cases. Ours were cases. Most of the trucks have a crossmember mount under the tranny but some have the rear mounts with the tranny hanging off the block.

Wonder if having midplates would fix some of the issues? I know on the 76 truck we bolt to the block and mount to the tail with a crossmember...

We have been running automatics in modifieds for years but must use a mid plate and no tail housing mount. There are also some brackets that you can buy or make that will support the transmission tail housing without being mounted to the cross member.

BRING IT !!! :o:P

Just Saying.... I don't think you will see any performance advantage and not saying I would change over if allowed @ HMP.
