Super T10

Post by jamesmacv8 » Fri May 04, 2018 1:29 pm

Hi

Just looking at transmission options and like the look of Super T10 4-speed for simplicity / originality. Are there any major issues with using this transmission in a Hawk chassis?

Hi James, I can't comment on if it will fit or not. I would say that using the car was more important to me than getting a 4 speed box. Having a 5 th gear really helps the car on our roads, maybe not so much on the track! The V8 in the car has so much torque that by the time you at motorway speeds I would say 5 th gear is essential if you are to travel any sort of distance. I used a tremec T5 .. John

+1 for the 5-speed box if you intend to travel any sort of distances, but fit a 4-speed knob if appearances bother you... :wink:
