There are mobs that will build a high hp btr, but you'll pay for it, and you don't really hear about it much as it's a small market.
At the end of the day swapping trannies is going to cost you a fair bit. The gear vendors might well end up being the cheapest route at the end of the day. And I reckon you'd have no dramas selling it if you ever changed your mind.

Yeah, you are spot on Husky. There is no doubt that at this stage the GV is definately the easiest option by probably a long way to be honest. Yes it is expensive but as things add up with the AOD/AODE/4R70W it is not that much more expensive if any. Looks like I will need to modify the headers, or new headers, on the AOD option (not confirmed yet but certainly looks this way) plus other things.

Not an easy decision as the transmission is a huge characteristic of the final drive and feel of the car in my opinion, so I want to get it right.

While I don't think the BTR is the best option - I don't agree that it won't hold your engine. A slightly modded boss motor or some boost into an XR6T is already up there.

The boys swapping over to other boxes are playing with big power. These days 500HP is nothing.

Excellent. A big upgrade for sure.


I will someday think of something clever to say.

Very correct Hybrid, hot off the press is that Renault have just announced that there will be no more major engine upgrades till 2018. That pretty much writes off Red Bulls season. Daniel is doing so well this year with the car he has. If they had a decent engine they would be unstoppable and here we have Hamilton equalling Senna's 65 poles record last race. What a load of shit that Hamilton is spoken in the same space as Senna. Makes me sick just because he had a Mercedes dominant car for 4 years. He has won every race and every pole in a Mercedes powered car for both McLaren and Mercedes. Both in dominant eras.

I know you do not regard Hamilton and what you say is true but he must have some ability. He has had partners in the same car but still comes out on top as often as not.
Just saying is all. Stir the pot

Yeah, I know I am harsh on him but I am not the only one that is for sure. He is an arrogant, self indulgent, up himself man and the Hybrid rules that made Mercedes untouchable gave him the two of his three championships. I wouldn't call his partner Rosberg a great driver. If Vettel, Alonzo or Ricciardo was his teammate during those times then he more than likely would only have one championship which he won against Massa who was his partner at the time at McLaren, again not a world better. And during that time McLaren were stripped of their championship points for spying on Ferrari and were caught with Ferrari documents in their possession.

Can he drive Nassi, yes he can, of course he can, but he is nowhere in the league of Senna, Schumacher and the like and currently there would be 3 or 4 better drivers is lesser cars. Ask him though and he is the best ever. Ask his peers and you will get a different answer. My argument is with him the car maketh the man.

Nice summary Cage and I will be sure to tell Lewis NOT to ask you for a character reference.
Very Happy

I like the Sniff Petrol description of Hamilton:

"Social media maven and part time car racer"

Cool - that landed quickly. I assume you have the bearing kit as well.
Nice.
