I was goin to an open track event... 10miles from the destination... i decided to drop gear and stretch it's legs.... then a loud thud, white smoke, clung clung clung.... i pulled over into a coincidently Mitsu dealer right off the fwy... they lifted and took a look.. the TC completely broke into pieces... then i call a bed truck and towed it 100+ miles home... :( what a day...

Wow ....

You know George, with this happening before leaving for the mothership ... I'll be glad to take that car off your hands for say.... $1000? I mean, you just don't need the extra stress of dealing with this before your trip home. Consider it a favor.... yeah, that's it :D.

Damn G, that sux :( Was that your original tranny/xfer case?? If so at least you got some miles out of it. I'll bet those fools at the Mitsu dealtership we're pretty impressed w/the Beast. You should have given them an earfull for making such a pos tranny/x-fer case :mad: I mean shit, that thing does look like a yolk should be pouring right out of it anytime :eek: That's pretty insane!

The transfer case was original... got 108K miles out of it... the tranny was a 2nd under warrantee.. 25 spline... got a good 95K out of it... still in tip top shape cepe the crack case now. tho I dont do hard launches and 1/4mile races, it did went thru some hard test tune and track driving... so... all in all, i wasnt that upset that it went on me

it's a 1st gen.. so only 5 gears :D was going about 100mph in 5th... drop it in 4th... boost immediately kicked it... pull hard and strong... thinkin i was good to go on the track for the weekend... did that a few times.. then the last time... BANG!! man.. the things that goes thru ur mind when u hear that kind of noise and the sudden loss of power... many of u know what im talkin about.. hehe.. :D

no, im not goin to sell it for $1000... i rather push it off the cliff and watch it burn... a more worth while entertainment~ :D

That sucks, I had the main transmission shaft snap in my 512TR halfway to Watkins Glen from CT. Luckily I had the other trans from the 512TR race car at home so my mechanic just swapped transmissions when I got home. The shaft looked like a swizzle stick :)
The week before I was at Lime Rock doing 70 mph burnouts at the top of the hill, it was fun but I'm not doing anymore of those, too expensive
