Hey Deuce, I like that picture of a wadded up moving blanket you used as a trans tunnel...Now that's being resourceful

2 inches is too much. No pedal room. Maybe at the top it would be ok, but at the sides it would cause problems.

I build them with no less than 1/2" clearance from any point on the trans or associated parts. Nothing ever rattles with 1/2" clearance, as far as I know.( hit a bump that will shake the body and motor on their mounts enough to move them 1/2" and the sound of the trans hitting the floor is much quieter than the sound of your head hitting the roof )

Try laying some 1/4 or 5/16 ID rubber hose over the trans, tape it down, then let the tunnel rest on it while you fit it to the floor.

Later, mikey
my signature lines...not really directed at anyone in particular..

BE different....ACT normal.

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example
