I found ours on ebay. The guy I bought it from was in a small city in Russia about 100 miles from the Mongolian border. It was a hell of a deal.

We've been using that trans and lsd in the the old car for some time now. It was totally game changing. There was a whole bunch of cars that out power us and used to just pass us with impunity. We get so much more traction out of the corners which means a huge head start, particularly out of really slow corners. We also loooove the lower final drive. We used to reasonably be able to drive the whole course at Sears Point in third, except exiting turn 11. Now we can make use of 2nd, 3rd, and 4th! That means we can keep the motor in the power band much better. I swear it was better than adding 20 hp.

Today Jason, Tedd, my wife and my son all pitched in and we painted the car black. This is in prep for our new theme, which shall remain a secret for now.



We painted using a 50/50 mix of rustoleum flat and rustoleum semi-gloss, with a little white in there to keep it from being completely black. We diluted it with about 1 part acetone to about 2-3 parts paint and rollered it on with foam rollers. The thinned rustoleum is supposed to flow enough that it smooths out pretty well. In full sun it dried so fast that it was leaving tracks from the roller. It's black but it ain't pretty. But we got it done in about 4 hours.
