Default While i am here I figured I would ask this as well.

Just curious Rosameelpito, you were here pretty regular posting on Mark Huelscamp, so you know the value of the forum.

Why didnt you post to see if anyone had any info on Sloan's transmissions before you sent major coin their way-Especially after getting burned as you claimed on your other deal.

Might be moot but it has me curious.

I'm not taking sides but i think the first mistake made was having Abruzzi send the trans back to Sloan instead of sending it back to Sloan himself.

i called sloans before i bought trans, i talked to other members on racingjunk before i bought trans , i researched internet on their transmissions and i guess there are 6 and 7 second guys using their transmissions ....and then i bought trans ,,i did all the research a person can make ....the only thing i did not do is post a question on the forum about sloans ,,, at this point all i can do it tell my experience with sloans trans. -- it doesnt matter if i sent trans to abruzzi at firs [ my mistake ] i had it shipped to sloans after that ,,, so it doesnt matter if i would have sent it australia ,,and it finaly made it to sloans ,,the fact is that they did nothing to fix the problem --twice

also i went to their website , and looked at their parts , experience, etc. i bought what was suppose to be a good trans from a reputable business, i did not buy a trans from a scammer , like you know who ... but for something positive ,,i finaly found a shop here in albuquerque new mexico that will do ,,,motors, trans, chassis, etc. they are racers and their prices are fair ....so from 6 monts ago , i have only been doing business with them ,,and jegs.com this guys in albuquerque are good and honest ,,they have a 57 chevy that just went 6.57 at 219 mph in the quater mile ,,so they do know what they are doing [ i saw that pass] i dont have to do business with scammers anymore ......thanks everybody for all the info. and comments

FYI. Several of my friends are running Alan Pope transmissions. He's building PG's that are holding up to blower motors making 2,500+ hp.
I have a BTE, but will be sending mine to Alan to freshen it up this winter.
Check out his web site and you'll see the yellow S10 called After Hours 1300+ hp, The red Jeep, called Possessed 1300hp+. Both of these trucks are National points champs and both running his transmissions along with many other mud racers.
