Re: 4 Speed or c-4?
Maybe I just wasn't smart enough to make the manual work. I fought it, and fought it, and then called in some buddies for reinforcements, and fought it some more...lol. I just couldn't make it work well. It seemed like every time I went to the track, I spent more time working on the clutch/ Z bar/ shifter, than I did making passes. This was my first year for the auto, and it came with a new set of problems, but once I got them worked out, I went faster, and don't work on my car at the track anymore.
I only ever broke one thing with the manual, and that was something I overlooked. I had everything built up decently, but I never thought about the spring perches. The third launch on slicks revealed what I overlooked, when it ripped both perches off and tore some stuff up. It would have happened with the clutch or converter.
Like I said, maybe I'm not smart enough for the clutch, but I smart enough to know that I couldn't make it work, so I made the switch.
