Just about every GT Mustang on the market has been tuned. And they get warranty work done all the time. I've had it done on previous cars. They can certainly try to void the powertrain warranty over a tune if they want to try to fuck you, but people can and have fought that.

I wonder what is weaker with the 10 speed over the 8.

My guy at the dealer said that the only reason Ford wants to send a new transmission is because they are new enough to the point that Ford wants the old transmission back so they can do analysis on why they're failing. He said if it were a manual, an engine, almost anything else, it would be no problem.

So that's just my shit luck. That's fine. I believe I worked out a deal to get it built/repaired for a *reasonable* price at Midnight. So I feel better about this now.

GM's involvement of course.

This thread just reinforces my desire to keep my car off the track until I feel like potentially spending the money on drive train component replacements. The last time my car was at the track, I snapped an axle...on stock power...with a sticky tire though.

The abuse I put my 3v through and it kept on truckin made me think I was good to go. I would launch that thing off the limiter on a 150 shot with a sticky ass tire and never broke anything on the drivetrain.

Sooooo lesson learned here is dont expose problems to the vultures on TCG.

In TCG land everyone has money dripping out of their asses and its only ok talk about when things are perfect.

Anything else is unacceptable.

Haha just a smidge faster than that. But I beat the ever living fuck out of that 3v. Probably only made mid 400s on the gun, but it was violent. This new car feels so gentile when it comes out

that was my problem going from the 14 with a converter and spray, the roush car felt like a turd, a hand full of parts and a retune helped alot but it just dosent leave the same as a 4k stall and a 150 shot

My dad told me this the day I turned 16. "If you can't afford to fix it AND have the car out of commission for weeks at a time, don't race it". Verbatim

It's not so much the affordability. I'm just less willing to part with the money as my priorities change over the years. This might be the last time I spend this kind of money on a car until any current or future kids are out of college.

Ford will likely deny the warranty if it comes in with the blower in it. Pulling the blower requires an enormous amount of work. I'm not sure if I'd actually put it back on if I take it off.

The part with fluid and filter is like $500. I'm going to have Midnight replace the part while they're in there building it. To me it's a better option than going back to stock for a new transmission and the car being down for a month.

Screw that I live by the motto "thy shall never have only 1 vehicle!"



But yes I agree we could afford more expensive cars but if they need work we'd be screwed.
