I wouldn't say this was small compared to the Indiana meet! Looks fun.

Yeah well he called and I reminded him he is also supposed to be sending $700 for the steel tubing for the roll cage in the orange 240 I found him for his rally-car project, and that he owes me arond $600 on various other thinggs and most important that he needs a trans in the 240 cause it has nothing so the smrat course would be: the easiest and the cheapest and thats another stock box...and save any T5 for the rally car...
Then later, when rally car runs and is back in Tejas, THEN think about a T5 for the wag-goon..

So he's still in need of a cheap solution..

Oh and a manual and some simple hand tools.

who knows how long that trans might last as when i changed the fluid on it here it was more of a pink milkshake color and looked to be very watery. I did not drain or do the OD filter as I did not have one here and it was the day before he was getting here to drive it back. So it made it from Seattle to here with that fluid in the trans.

Unable to dig until next week. Flying to CA tomorrow, back Sun., just in time for F1 to really mess up Austin's airport...

Kyote changed it again last weekend. Didn't look too good then either.
