Hi,
I just bought a 1/6 scale Ford SOHC drag engine and would like to install it in a 1/8 scale 'Big T'. Should make a great looking dragster. But, where do I find an appropriate transmission? Or, could I modify a 'Big T' tranny to look like a transmission that would fit behind the SOHC? Any ideas and advice will be greatly appreciated.

The 1/6 motor is going to be WAY too big for the 1/8 Big T. Its about 30% bigger than it should be. No 1/6 scale trannies exist, you will have to build one from scratch.

Thanks Mike for your reply about the 1/6 motor and transmission. Yes, it will be too big for a 1/8 Big T but it may make a good cartoon car. We'll see if I ever get around to scratching a tranny for the motor.
