Frank,

Please , me intimidated by you? Nope. You are a one transmission guy. That is wonderful. I am not going anywhere soon, although I hope to retire when I hit the big 6-0 in 2.4 yrs.

Dont confuse my work load with your one trans build. I build a full line of transmissions that work on streets, off road racing and even trans in machines that launch gliders. Why any person would want to ride in an airplane with no engine is beyond me personally.

Lets see; Load release springs work well on daily street vehicles when the spring cages are re-worked slightly. My 4l60 trans have gone 100's of thousands of miles.

i dont like kolene steels in race units. Virtually every builder I know do not use them in a trans to be drag raced. Who knew so many guys with big reps were wrong?

I will take a few photos of the aluminum piston in the molded steel piston. You must be afraid to get the parts in front of you and learn something on how to modify them.

Sorry I was unclear on the video of the engine. I work with high horsepower door cars now. No body's 4L60E (the one trans you build good) will hold that power.

No need for me to whine to moderators, I am a mod... remember? These folks talk all the time Frank. Your thread on faulty transmission cooler design got plenty of laughs in the moderator forum and I did not even bring up that thread. LOL , The member's comment on making hot water by bending up some copper pipe like a tube n fin cooler was real funny.

Membership has also sent me links to various web forums with folks complaints about you and your slow service. I disregard that since in any business there are upset customers

IMO your best bet is to forget about the fin and tube "heater" theory and stick to something you know. There's no need to repeat a test if the test is seen to be flawed from the get-go.

"if it's been proven..." is the operative phrase here...

I'd suggest we not get sidetracked, anyway. THIS thread is about TH700R4's and the torque they'll handle.

We don't condone street racing here, and those who do, and those who promote it, aren't welcome, take the hint, pull up your big boy pants and grow up. You're a real piece of work!

Ok, since I started this thread on how much torque can a 700R4 take....and since the whole smear has gone into the toilet....and since Mr. 4L60e himself who is obviously a legend in his own mind has taken it over for commercial purposes.....and since I /we don't condone street racing....can we send this to the dump at my request....please.

Maybe just locking it might be the better solution- no need to throw away the good info contained in this thread.

Now thats not nice of u to talk trash about me when u dont even no me. Especially when ur wrong. That street race we had a permit for. There was a cop, fire engine, and ambulance there. So sorry u that was not an illegal street race. And if it was illegal i dont think the road wood be prepped 50 feet out and i wouldnt be lifting the wheels on the street. Youtube impalexss and u will see nothing but track videos. I wouldnt have posted an illegal street race video when no forums like street racing. So i think ur a little salty

For the time, this thread is locked. After a discussion in the moderator forum, it will be re-opened after a clean up I imagine

I was reading thru this thread and thought Frank was winning the arguement (I've never been inside a 700, have worked on a few 350s, 400s, PGs, and 200R4s but am NOT an expert). Then it dawned on me that Frank is the 'magic' tranny cooler guy from that other thread. I DO know a bit about heat exchangers having worked as an engineer in heat transfer for over 35 years and he is definitely clueless in that area. Have to believe that same expertise carries over into his tranny bloviating.
