I'll ship it tomorrow through USPS and send an email with the tracking number. Thanks!

I do recommend the following drain bolt, maybe with a dab of loctite on the red screw that retains the magnet. I don't think the pan and bolt are lower than other parts of the car. If you'd scrape the trans oi pan, you'd be scraping the engine subframe and engine oil pan.


For a racing GT, I'd consider putting some steel plate under the car anyways and have it flow into a diffusor. You could really improve the GT's aero with some undercarriage improvements.

Sweet. That's exactly what we do on our endurance road racing Toyota MR2s.

Whelp, there seems to be growing interest in another run of these. I am working on updating pricing right now (have the seen the price of lumber lately??)
If anyone is interested in another round of Gen 3 pans shoot a message on here and i'll try to get a rough count before taking commitments!

I’ll back another round and get one for sure. Depends on the price if I’d get two.

Right now the form doesn’t work but I can commit to one for sure. Even if I don’t use it, I’ve sold two pans in the past. So, I’m not worried about backing it again.

Anyone going racing should have two of these pans. A complete spare transmission, ready to go could be a good investment.
