Joined the broken mt82 club today! yay!

Well guys, opening day at the track didn't go as i planned lol. The car ran extremely well. My final race though i went to grab 3rd and kaboom, broke that gear. I was able to get it home (20 minutes) because that was seemingly the only broken gear. Overall the transmission wasn't horrible to me, i've put it through 2 full seasons of track time w/ more passes than i'd wanna count, but it finally gave up. Mods are paxton 3.6, gt350im, LTH and 93 octane. Exedy Hyper clutch..it's a lil hard on the mt82 i think lol. Time to start crunching the numbers on a swap!

Welcome to the club fellow Iowan. I went through two before doing a TR6060 swap. Love it!
What did it run?

Lol thanks for the warm welcome. There were no times. I was at a crazy little track where its just a patch of concrete in the middle of corn. Never prepped, no times. Just grudge racing. Anyway I'm kinda tempted to piece together a 6r80 swap.. but I'm going to call Ben calimer Monday to check options.

Just curious.. I am going to be running a similar setup soon. How much are you pushing? O/R LTH?

yea, catless LTH. I made 661/530 but we let off at like 6800/6900'ish. Was gun shy after getting it all put together I guess. The wheels are in motion for a 6r80 swap for me, I'm going to take that route I think.
