I haven't found anybody that can build a fully roller c-4 cheaper than me...I use 8+7 regular thick clutches & thick steels' not the little thin ones like tci uses...That warps every time the transmission farts....Been doing it ever since c-4s were around...Will be running 1 behind the 96 mustang i will be testing in april...438 stroker / 15:1 compression.....2 stage fogger....C-4'S Rule...I have plenty of used c-4 parts also cheap...I use PA's Valve Body's....The best known to man....

He must be really good then to be that busy and im sure there was a reason he was a dick but you didn't care to notice. When it was done , how did your transmission work?

My doctor is a dick actually he is a fucking asshole and it took forever for him to schedule me a surgury but when he was done I worked just great, so I got over the asshole part.

Thanks for the words of wisdom....you're right, I didn't care to notice. He said four weeks, I called at the beginning of week five and was told it was going to take another couple of weeks......and he was a dick when I asked why. My bad.

Pretty simple. He quoted me a price and time frame. When he knew he couldn't live up to the time frame, he could have called me and told me he was behind and all would have been fine, but Joel decided that he wasn't obligated to any customer service outside of building a trans..

Like I said, great trans but he was a dick to deal with.

By the way, thanks for the analogy, I'll bet you come up with those little gems all the time. Impressive!

On the subject of building C4's - does anyone have any part numbers for the thrust bearings? I'm trying to build a backup trans and am having trouble finding the original application for the bearings that are in mine.
