Redneck Performance...anyone have any experience with them??

I'm looking to buy a new race trans for my Nova and have done some looking...TCI, Coan, Hughes....came across Redneck Performance on Ebay.... Price looks good...warranty...feedback is good... but I was wondering about any long term use....

If u have used their trannys, I would love to here what you think about it....

I'm a believer in you get what you pay for... but these guys sound pretty good....

Thanks
Nasty

No personal experience, but there has been some talk about them on the T-bucket forum I follow. The few folks that were familiar with them had only positive things to day. One guy's brother-in-law bought a tranny and converter from them and was very satisfied. Two other guys bought converters from them but their buckets aren't running yet so they couldn't comment on performance.

What is the price difference between the name brands and the rednecks? I would pay more and feel better knowing I had a hughes tranny with a probably better warranty and easier to deal with if something goes awry.

price

One thing to always remember in this hobby,,,there is never a free lunch... Granted there are companys that charge a few ( or manny) dollars more,but the compitition is great and if you were way over priced on something you would be out of business soon...
If you are saving $500.00 on the same transmission there is a reason for it...

I have had transmissions in my shop built by some the the low buck guys and you can tell right away why they are so cheep...

Just an observation from a business owner who deals all the time with price shoppers....

Maybe you should contact them and have them explane why there transmissions are so much cheeper.... i am sure there answer will make the choice for you much easyer.....

as I said in the initial post I'm a firm believer in "you get what you pay for" ... that said "you also pay for the name" ... so I try and buy the best that I can afford...

the redneck comes with a 6 month warranty.... the coan was a 90 day warranty

just thought I would see what people thought of them... I'm just running a bracket car and having a hard time telling myself...(and the wife) that I need to drop 2 grand on a tranny....but, I don't want to stop at local shop that doesn't build race transmissions regularly and end up with one with a kit and a couple extra clutches in it...

No experience with Redneck either, but wanted to make sure you understand something pretty important here. Once you said racing, your warranty and gaurantee is a non issue as far as deciding on which tranny/converter company you go with. No warranty, no gaurantee on anything if it is being raced. That said, I agree with previous post on making decision based on best quality parts you can afford. I am very happy with my purchases from ATI transmissions, out of Baltimore MD. They are a full service shop, are experienced in race & street applications with a very knowledgible staff.

I just bought a 3500 stall converter for my blown small bloc. I have not used it yet. The outside looks great. You can look down inside and it all looks new. A few other guys on the NTBA site have used them and are happy with what they got.

redneck transmissions

I have had a redneck th350 with a brake and 4800 stall in my S-10 bracket truck for over a year. no problems whatsoever. runs 6.90s in the 8th all day long. Just run bigger cooler lines than the little 1/4 inch stock steel lines to a good cooler,as the brake produces alot of heat.

In Texas IMO the trans to get is Phenoix Transmissions, not the cheapest by a long shot but they have been around for a long time. I know of at least a dozen rodders who have their transmissions. If your close enough you can see your trans dyno'd.

Redneck Performance Experience

Recap of Transmission purchased on eBay from RP $1,500 with shipping
FORD C4 TRANSMISSION (LOADED)- C-4 REV MAN TRANSBRAKE

I bought this transmission because I had bought a torque converter previously and had good results.

RP did not usually answer the phone when I called.
RP phone call backs were hours or a day later. Usually late afternoon.
RP closes their entire office for a week.
RP's website is has missing pictures on their web site.
The Registrant Contact for the website URL is Alan Hartmann whose email is ahartman@artcarr.com

1. The transmission that I purchased was leaking excessively after I drove it. Thereafter, it would leak once it got warmed up and I determined it was leaking from inside the bell housing.

2. As suggested by RP, I pulled the transmission and they sent me a new pump and gasket that I replaced.

3. After installing the transmission again it did not leak But, it does NOT go forward or backwards when shifted. It does go in and out of park.

4. As suggested by RP, I put washers on 1/4 inch washers on the torque convertor which was very difficult since the torque is threaded and does not have studs.

5. This washers did not make the transmission work.

6. I asked for a refund but I would have to pay shipping back and only had a 10 days to return.
