well i was 400 miles from home hanging out with one of my good buddys and we were out crusing in the truck i had just gotten the 4x4 fixed and we were doing a few bosted launches and racking some ricers :peelout well we were on our way back to his apartment and i decided to try out the adraline feature for the 0-60 time. spooled up to about 25 psi and let her rip well it hooked up and went like a bat out of hell and around 50 mph i hear a loud bang and then grinding first thing im thinking is oh crap i jsut blew up my clutch becasue it was free reving tryed to shift and i stll had 4th gear and could move still and realised i had either stripped the teeth off of 3rd or just shattered the gear :thud: im not shure if the trans is still under warrenty but im hopeing it is.. sigh its only money right?
