Re: SST Silver Sport Transmissions - from the ashes of Keisler?
Jeff, I like the price but its Mikes money, I am just a tool being used to improve a very cool Nomad. I have a lot going on right now at the shop. I want Mike to enjoy the car for a few weeks so he can tell me what the car is doing. His likes and dislikes. Muncies are not butter smooth. Tremecs are. But the car has a real M22 and a 12 bolt. Lots of cool things going on up front underneath. It has hydroboost, frigen cold ac, and 4 wheels disc. For a 57, it handles very well.
May is just too soon. Mike has a new injection setup to play with and the car only has a tad over 600 miles since the car was finished in its first form.
My goals , for Mike, would be swap the clutch, stab a trans, change the yoke, and have Mike drive this thing daily for a few months, in a few months. Not interested in trans tunnel mods for a T56, a T5 is all we need. The Nomad wears original floors, rockers, trunk floor. Not really a car you cut.
I have a 14 ZL1 with a 6 speed. I can remember using 6th gear but a handful of times, and this 57 is a lot lighter than a tech packed Camaro.
One thing we both agree on, the clutch in the car sucks. You are either on the pedal, or not.
Couple of junkers and a few clunkers.
