I hope I am not too hard on my equipment. I have a couple of extra a-arms, tranny and rear end. With the car being an ex-lawn ornimant I was looking for anything that I may have overlooked. I have done ball joints, tie rods,..basically rebuilt the front and rear ends. I have not gone into the tranny...I need to learn what really happens in there and how to fix it, I am just going to hope it holds together...it seems fine, shifts nice and does not jump out of gear. My first consern is I don't want to stuff it due to a $100 part failure that I should have replaced anyway. After I mature as a driver...and the car matures as a race car then I will look at setup and all...unless it handles like a pig out of the shoot.
