Race at SGMP this month.

Got a smoking deal on this from JEGS, I think there's one left, if I were smart I'd get it while the getting is good.

Creme de la creme.

I got the sbf bell coming from SUMMIT and a Sonnax ratio servo.

Most the rest of the soft parts from TSR, I like their shift levers, everything they sell actually, they wrote the book.

TSI ringless input, 7 bolt pump and 1.69 kryo gearset.

Should be a nice piece, JW fast brake.

JW fast, hope it's not too fast for the .400 Pro Tree SGMP!

In case everyone hasn't seen these new billet steel powerglide pressure plates.

TSR makes them, if you break the oem which happens quite often, these are the fix.

I can't say. Less than most, more than a few, I'm sure.

I put em every one I can whenever they're available, it's a good idea.

No Sir, mostly REID.

The Ford REID bell showed up today but not the Sonnax ratio Servo.

When it shows up we'll have a look at it.

So you run around 1.000 delay, letting go on the top Super Pro racing correct?

Before I changed valve bodies from bracket brake to a Pro Tree brake, I ran 1.050 delay.

That told me I could be .050 green on a .400 Pro Tree, with the bracket brake.

After I changed to the JW Pro Tree brake, I could be double 00 .400 Pro Tree. I did some other stuff in the transmission too though.

It's worth 4-5 hundredths, put some big M/T radials on it to make up for the other 5 hundredths you need

I was helping a guy with a heads up car I had done the trans, it had an intermittent sticking pressure regulator valve, trans would lose pressure. So I had him put a trans pressure gauge on the dash, he could keep an eye on.

So he's at a race at Bradenton, wakes up in the morning after qualifying the night before, starts car... no trans pressure. He calls me on the phone with the news. I asked which vendors were on the property, he says JW and one other. I suggested go get a JW valvebody.

He went from .030 mid hi .020 lights with another brand Pro Tree brake to 00's with the JW valvebody he installed at Bradenton.

JW is fastest period, easy on the tire too (relatively speaking).
