    hmmm. I guess mine was fubar, because it made some horrendous noise on almost every 1>2 wot shift, and sometimes for no reason whatsoever, lol. It was like the tranny mount was not even there or something that would sound like that. It was bad enough that I took it off after about a month and put the stocker back on.

    Thanks. I had a Spohn chassis mounted version. I guess I could try a Spohn tranny mounted adjustable one. That one wouldn't make any noise since there aren't any pivot points like on the chassis mounted ones.

    The gears are for the roll racing, the torque arm was meant for better traction off the line, someone else with the gears I have in mind on another thread mentioned wheel hopping off the line that is why I was thinking a torque arm was in order..
    Another thing would some koni's in the back help?
