When I first took this car out the trans would shift way too early,so I tightened up the cable on the carb,just got back from a road test.
Car is extremely fast now!!
My question is am I gonna hurt this trans?
Its shifting right at 4000 rpms right now,like BANG,really hard.
So what is the correct method for adjusting the TV cable and can I leave it like it is
Thanks in advance
