http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - The transformation of Project Splitter begins with a quick mini-tub job to gain clearance for the larger rear tires, followed by a major overhaul of the front suspension. Splitter now sits on Global West tubular upper and lower control arms, QA1 coil-over shocks and springs, Baer brakes, CCW Wheels, and Toyo Tires.

1971 Olds "S71" Chassis Clean-Up V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - After the chassis was media blasted, the guys took the welders, grinders, and sanders to the frame to clean-up what the factory left behind. They welded up unfinished factory seams, ground off excess welding slag and started measuring to add additional steel to "box" the original frame for strength. They also try out the new HTP micro belt sander to clean tight areas.

Gear Vendors Overdrives SEMA 2008 V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Gear Vendors has been displaying their bolt-on overdrive units at the SEMA show since 1981, and Rick Johnson brings us up to speed on the latest from Gear Vendors. They have units that fit just about every application imaginable, and they handle over 1000 horsepower with ease. Add to that the 28% increase in fuel economy (or higher!) and you have a great mod for your muscle car or tow vehicle. We tested one in project Splitter and were really impressed with the performance.





1968 Charger with Gearvendors
Just driving around in the 68 Charger using the gear vendors overdrive. Nothing to overly exciting. Just something to watch when winter cabin car fever starts kicking in. :) For whatever reason it sounds like the microphone on the iphone was distorting at the cursing rpm range. Pity. I really wish I could capture the low rumbling.

Rare OverDrive Unit found for the '37 School Bus
A friend of ours had this right down the street from us, and gave us a real good deal on it.. He bought it brand new in 1982, put it on his truck, drove it for about 40 miles, and sold the truck.. He took the overdrive unit out though before selling the truck, intending on using it in another truck later on, but never did.. We bought it from him still new in the box, with all the manuals and paper work.. It's a "Double Torque 2XT" , and was made by Power Torque Industries, Inc. Company, in Arlington, Texas.. It was made to bolt onto this SM465 G.M. four speed truck transmission that we are using.. We understand this company sold out to "Advanced Adaptors" and they continued building this same unit with very little changes.. They are now called the "Ranger Torque Splitter". . They no longer have the Eaton electric solenoid though, as the earlier units did, and have gone to strickly manual shift.. Although we have the electric solenoid, we decided to manual shift ours also.. These units are basically like having an additional transmission, one in front of the other.. Instead of the standard 4 forward speed and reverse, we now have the option of having 8 forward speeds, and 2 speed reverse.. According to the manual, this unit is actually better than a standard 5 speed transmission in fuel economy.. You only get a 17 % increase in economy with the 5 speed, and a 33 % with this unit.. "A typical 4-speed driven at 55 MPH in 4th gear would have an engine RPM of 2450. That same transmission with the 2XT added, driven at 55 MPH in 8th gear would have an engine RPM of 1830, a drop of 33 % in engine RPM.. Another good thing about this unit, over the "Gear Vendors" overdrive unit, is that It is a better design being mounted on the engine, instead of the rear of the transmission, as it never sees the multiplied torque, like the Gear Vendors units, which see 6 to 7 times the torque. We were glad to get this over drive unit, as with our 410 rear end gear ratio, it was going to be bad on gas.
