I was just wondering why you'd run the 1/4 at the track with a busted shifter.....no hating...just curious.

i dont really care why you ran with a busted shifter... i probably would to, if its broke, why not break it some more. but im curious why you got 18.8 at 19.8... 19.8? even if you managed to get the car into 2nd gear you could at least get up to like 50...

before you replaced the broke shift base, did you strengthen up the new one at all? I had mine break also so I looked at where it broke and added epoxy to those areas...
