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

    Wow, been a busy past 2 years since last post...

    Since last post, the trans that went in in 2016 lasted thru SDAC-26, Mopar Nats, HRDW 2016, SDAC-27, Mopar Nats, HRDW 2017, SDAC-28 and various other track outings and driving whenever I had a chance... only opened once early 2017 to change the pads and look for 3rd gear issues. Other than that it has been fine. It was in the car until last weekend. Taking it out the exterior of the case looks OK, no visible cracks. I think the key to this is on 24.5" tires combined with no 2-step and soooooooooooft launches.

    So why did it come out? Well, the latest badass trans is going in... some interesting revisions... update and pics coming soon

    Sounds Interesting...….

    "No 24.5" tires"? So what are you launching on these days? 22-23's?

    Cool. Are you attending the Mopar Nats this year? Diane & I will be there. I'll be in my truck though, the Daytona is up in the air still At least we'll have air conditioning on the drive down.

    LOL I kant type or speel! I meant "on 24.5" ties" and dyslexia prevailed... edited my post. Been 24.5" for a while and without the 2-step the cases seem to have held together.

    Yes, the plan is to be there with the Z as long as it goes back together again and runs *fingers crossed*

    Car ran OK, taking it easy on new trans and trying to set the low boost lower, went 11.13@ 131mph on 20-21psi. Last pass, driver error combined with easy shifting trans... 1-2-1 shift luckily I got it out of first quickly but the engine was over 10k (memory tach only goes to 10k) and it was knocking after the run. After messaging DJ who had that happen on the last pass he made in his Shadow, turns out the knocking was from the flywheel getting knocked loose or broke or clutch broke, its not all the way apart yet. new clutch on the way

    No time for full update yet but here is a sneak peek of new gearset I gut from Brad Parent (Junior92) and he got faceplated at Liberty's I hope its OK Plan is to test it out to see if its worth making more.

    Glad to hear it's just a clutch!

    Are your 24.5's Mickeys or M&H's?

    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 time for a sequential addition to make sure you never do it again.

    SON OF A....#@$%@#$%

    Well, I'm glad someone finally got this done to one of our trannies! I've been wanting to do it for a long time, but no vendors seemed interested (dunno how Liberty was persuaded, honestly), so I was going to try to do it myself whenever I got the equipment.

    How much did that cost? Indications they are willing to reproduce it?

    I’m guessing there is some crazy shear “jerk” and that plus RPM and vibration shakes them loose?

    I will run whatever you want to send me LOL

    Gears and trans parts were made a while ago for Brad, I just picked it up this year. How was Liberty persuaded? Lots of cash LOL! They went about it a little bit differently than I would have and made modifications to the case. I think there might be a better way where are you could use different slider design and not have to modify the case or add in different stops. The way this one was done you’d have to send your trans to them or make templates off mine.

    Yes they are willing to reproduce it if this thing lives in my car will try to set up a group buy start saving now lol

    For some reason I feel this may have been directed at me! Haha!

    It's funny because the first thing I said in a text after he told me about the misshap was.

    "Maybe time to pay DJ to engineer us a sequential shifter!!😉 I think he had one kind of designed before he decided to go rwd. I could help out with the machining."

    Not terribly happy about their method of creation, especially since JT had a sickness for killing cases. Would be nice to drop in parts and go.

    I did tell JT and Lengel I don't even care if they like it, I am already IN.

    Kevin (DodgeZ) did this once in his SRT, except went from 5th to 2nd What happened on it is the holes in the flexplate egged out (modular clutch). Ended up replacing it with a non-modular clutch kit.

    Assuming JT's isn't modular, I would definitely replace the flywheel bolts.

    Awesome! I was confused at first, looking for reverse because I'm so used to the 520/555 configuration.

    So the linkage would just consist of an arm that attaches to the dowel sticking out the side (facing us in the screenshot)?
