The tranny looks awesome. Great work on the clutch can and the blanket and belts are top notch. The electrical tape is a great tip that I will borrow from you.

Your clutch can came out great, much better the second time with the rounded edge. Looks like you are coming right a long with using your lathe. I may have missed it, did you decide to hollow it our as well? The Air shifter pods look great on the tranny.
Keep them updates coming.. Makes me want to get cracking on mine again!

That whole tranny is first rate Joe. All of the different materials you used really come to life.

Thx. Guys , this build is turning out way better then I expected.

Bart, I didn't hollow out the bell, I need a new chuck my old one doesn't hold tight enough . I did put it on my drill press and drill holes in it to lighten it up a bit.


Shifters are done , I will have some pictures tonight of it all in the chassis.

Something I failed to comment on that someone else mentioned is the different materials you used for the blanket straps that really set them off and add a whole 'nother level of realism to your trans, Joe. I'm looking forward to your updated pics... :)

Thx. Scott and Leonard.

After pulling out what's left of my hair i have the trans installed, unfortunately i had to take my gas pedal back out because i could not get the clutch can past it. It's all good now and reinstalled, I couldn't make the connectors like the 1:1 uses so i just used some brass nuts. I could have made the reverse shifter a little closer to the drivers side, where it's at now you could never reach it from the seat. I turned the push buttons down on the lathe and hit them with some 1000 grit so they look like brused aluminum. You can't see it but i had to put the clutch can decal on the drivers side, all in all i'm very happy with the way it turned out. Once i find some 1/16th buckles that i think will look good i will do the seat, going to work on the rear end next and try and get the tubs installed. My goal is to be able to show it at NNL east 2013.

Used Ted's modeling black rubber line

RB motion nuts and stainless rod

Scale hardware brass nuts.

Also had Jim machine me up some Lamb calipers for the rear. He even put the name on them. :D

That transmission looks fantastic, Joe! This build is coming along very nicely... I'm sure it'll be excellent when finished, the chassis is looking so good already!

Thx. Dave.


Need some help guys, Had a setback and hope it's not going to turn into a major one. i had my wheel tubs stored in an air tight container and the edges of the carbon decal in some spots are turning white, looks like maybe the clear is still eating at them? Is it possible being in an air tight container did this?. The carbon decals on the chassis are fine so far and there were all done with in weeks of each other except the chassis was never stored in a container. I used scale motor sports decals and model masters laquer clear. Now, how do i strip these to redecal them, can i use the purple pond? if so will that mess up my glue joints? or do i just sand them down best i can and try redecaling them? Make news tubs really isn't an option i want to use as these fit to good.

it is very possible Joe, there is no where for the fumes to escape as the paint is still curing, I would throw them in warm water and hope it loosened them up, its not going to hurt anything to try that

Never thought of the water Bill, I did let the paint itself cure for 2 weeks before I decaled them, I think I let them sit a week after clear then they went in the container. I was guessing it was still fuming also
