[insert tire smoke joke here]
Continuing the thread drift .......automatic transmissions have come a long way but even back in the stone age there were a few that stood out from the rest.It was Hydramatic's engineers, but GM spec'd a price point and 75,000 mile life expectancy. God bless them, they fed LOTS of mechanic's kids and are still doing it today. I've done a lot of cash-on-the-side bench jobs, poor people helping poor people have transportation.
Now this is drift that isn’t drift. A car that creates a vacuum in a thread about alox. They both suck.Jim Hall and his Can-Am series Chaparral.
At the time, I heard that Chevy could not figure out his transmission modifications.
Later in the car's evolution, Hall mounted a snowmobile engine, at the rear of the car, that drove two fans that were used in conjunction with sliding shirts to create a vacuum or sucker effect. The car was promptly banned.
