    Re: BadAss SRT-Z - 2.4L / A568 - Update!!!

    Yes. The idea was to use stock cables with the cross over possibly being used as a reverse lockout but I hadn't got that far before crossing to the dark side. I'm not sure if it would be needed or...

    Sucks on the 1-2-1 but it will be interesting if all your flywheel bolts are loose too. I still don't really know how that happened from an instant climb in RPM.

    Now that you're faceplated it's...

    If someone models the case I can do some FEA. I have too many of my own things to pull it all off. ;)

    That being said, there are some good free tools that anyone can use to get things done.

    Re: BadAss SRT-Z - 2.4L / A568 - Update!!!

    The backwards rotation should put that area into compression. Compression doesn't generally produce fatigue cracking but as you said it does still remove stress that doesn't need to be there. Without...

    Looking at your pics earlier I was wondering if the stress riser is at the base of the threaded hole for the selector bolt. The ones you just posted suggest this even more. Do you have an old broken...

    No I didn't try it Randy, it's a little bit too hillbilly for me. I prefer a more engineered and intentional purpose built approach.

    Get a universal clutch switch for an aftermarket cruise control and set it for the top of the clutch travel. That's how I have mine setup. I use a ball chain attached to a limit switch. By adjusting...

    Re: BadAss SRT-Z - 2.4L / A568 - Update!!!

    No need for moly as it would most likely turn into a deflection issue and not a yielding issue as soon as you went carbon steel. Mild without the pockets would probably do just fine.

    Re: BadAss SRT-Z - 2.4L / A568 - Update!!!

    MY theory on the matter is that with high torque input there is obviously some relatively high spreading forces which put bearing load on the sleeve. With the helical set this also brings decently...

    I'm with you Vigo that the gear set in the A568 is very strong and as a whole off the factory floor probably stronger then the T850. Heck I made mine weaker and it still took a beating. The apeal in...

    Re: BadAss SRT-Z - 2.4L / A568 - Update!!!

    Exactly, it seems the Honda case doesn't respond well to gear separating forces which are lessened with a helical cut gear set. I can find Liberty, G-force and PPG gear failures, all of which are...

    From my research many of the Liberty/Honda failures could be attributed to the case. Obviously not all of them but like most internet stories there isn't much in the way of failure analysis...
