Hey guys, my names Mike. Im known on other forums as F8L GT. I have a 2002 Mustang GT that has been set up for the strip. Still running the stock long block N/A. Been working the last 2 years on a face plated trans that I have fabricated all the parts for. Where most stick their money into more power, I spent my money on suspension and rear end. Quickest the car has gone in the 1/4 so far is a 12.55 @ 107. I have had a quicker 1/8th mile that would lead to about a 12.3-12.4 but I cant back that up until I can actually get this trans worked out and make good passes with the car.

Welcome, I have no idea what the hell you're talking about with this trans business. Get some photos up for the curious (me!).

ill post up a link to my photobucket and you can browse the album. Basically you are removing all the synchronizers and replacing them with dog rings that will allow you to WOT shift at any RPM.

Sounds like you'll be getting pretty good at rev matching on down shifts.

Welcome.

Alright I see what you did. How does that not end up just destroying the gears?

By being quick and firm with your stick Wink theres no taking your time to shift. When its time to shift you have to slam it into gear. I have already broken 2 aluminum shift handles and now Im running a Pro 5.0 steel handle
