Anything new on the status of Legend and LGT700

Has anyone heard anything lately on the goings on with Legend and the LGT 700? Tranny is next on my list and this one certainly interests me but nervous about taking the plunge and waiting what seems like a VERY long time for a VERY expensive transmission with a company that seems a bit shaky.

Last time I talked to Jody, he said it's a 2 year wait

That is what I thought. That is unreasonable in my opinion and eliminates them for me.

Re: Anything new on the status of Legend and LGT700

I called Jody twice earlier this week (Tues & Thurs) and left a message, and haven't heard back. I also sent Legend an email through their site about it on Thursday morning and have not gotten a reply.

I feel all arrows are pointing me in a different direction.

Re: Anything new on the status of Legend and LGT700

As much as a like that trans it makes me remember the teething problems of earlier super transmissions. All the preorder fiasco and the loss of deposits by many. If you can get on a list without putting $'s down you should get on that list, If it requires a financial out lay I would definitely look into another option. 2 years is a long time.

Could not agree more Al, just not willing to fork over nearly 2K in a deposit for somethin that might be done in two years.

The more I learn about the M23Z, the more it intrigues me, especially behind a big block.

Re: Anything new on the status of Legend and LGT700

Yea Clint it seems pretty interesting. Although I would probably have to run a 3.08 gear as my 3.31 just buzz a little more than I like on the highway. Something just don't seem right about 3.08 in a hot rod!! LOL


I just used an RPM calculator and going to a 3.08 only drops it to 2,729 from around 2,960 with the 3.31. Probably not worth the expense for 200rpm.

Re: Anything new on the status of Legend and LGT700

I just installed a new Legend into my 69. Jody does not charge anything up front. So getting on the waiting list costs nothing. I was on the list but found a private seller that had an unused legend and decided to buy it.

I am on Jody's list if a used one comes along, at least I am supposed to be.


Was is what you hoped it would be?

Be much easier and cheaper to just run a taller tire, Pat. What size is on the rear,now?
