The whipple won I made 4 1/8 mile passes and on the 5th it let go blew fluid everywhere and quit pulling. My triple axle rated for 15000 pounds also broke 6 studs and my wheel and tire went into the great unknown on the way home. On a side note though those 4 passes were frekin awesome and it spun 1/2 of the track. I think when I get a new trans and get it too a good track it will do very well:bigtu

7.37 spinning like mad, hot and humid as all get out and horrible track conditions. My track in my home town is an old air strip and rough as crap! I just wanted to do some testing before I go the 2 hours away to a good hooking track

Guess BTS trans are not bullet proof! I hope the pay the shipping both ways on the warranty of the trans.
Brian is only 3 hours from me and if I know him like I think I do he will take care of it no problem. Now if I can just get him to take it out and put it back in lol

Figured FLHP proved this to everyone with how many tranny's he went through with his 3.4.
OMG no kidding.

Last pass ate a local built one.

Brian is the man. He had some new tricks to try and just finished another one for the silver truck. He stood behind the 2 we hurt and was excited to give it another try

The new BTS is sitting at the shop ready to go in.

The last pass did the same thing. Filled all the webbing and coated the underside of the truck. That was with a 3.75 upper and 6# lower. We saw 25 psi on the gauge.
