Dyno pulls - Lee Sicilio's Hemi Daytona Landspeed car
Car holds a number of records in "Classic" category at Bonneville. Current
engine is a 498 CID Ray Barton Hemi with FAST XFI injection.
These are the last two pulls to verify AFR and ignition at 7000+rpm before
heading to Bonneville later this year, trying for a record in the
Although we were not logging horsepower on these loaded
pulls (not important) - the engine made 930 hp on Barton's Superflow engine
Special thanks to import tuner Steve Kan, who allowed us to use his
facility in Fort Worth!

Trans & Clutch 7 - AWD Fluids
EXPAND THE INFO SECTION. I made a video about changing gear oil in a
manual transaxle. People were grateful for it, but the AWD guys wanted a
video about how to do the transfer case and rear end service. Rightly so!
I just had a great opportunity to do this, so I did it.
There are people on-line who know their stuff, and at least twice as many
who don't. Someone who said "I like this gear oil because it works better
than anything else I've tried" might not have tried it all, might be
talking about a brand new transmission, or one that's on its last legs.
It's important to take their situation in context rather than any kind of
omnipotent wisdom. There are people who have done research, there are
those who have experience, and then there are those who have an opinion.
It's important to differentiate whose advice you should be following.
TeamRip Engineering has done more oil research, or at least provided more
public lab info than any other source in the DSM community about what a DSM
likes. Perhaps others have done that kind of work. Perhaps others have a
history of rebuilding gearboxes after the wrong oils were used. I tend to
listen to the transmission builders as they tend to give the best advice.
Below are the links to a few reputable DSM transmission builders.
Following that are some retail and speed shops that have good rapport with
the racing community. I've tried to be as comprehensive as possible with

Where to buy...
I discovered some oils are difficult to find vendors for. I was overjoyed
to find I can get any fluid I want from anywhere in the world on Amazon.
