Cool! I look forward to the second episode. I love the modified stuff, but the side cut in the decklid...ugh. You would think they could have routed air differently without cutting the outside, maybe up through by the decklid strut areas or other area.

Funny, I was about to comment that I liked it. For once an air intake that doesn't upset the lines of the car too much Big Grin

Would be interesting to see what transaxle they used, doesn't look like a ZF

Could be I only see the one or two photos. Maybe seeing more of it on TV the decklid cut will grow on me.
They aired the second part of the show last night on Discovery....they really did a good job showing off the Pantera. They ended up going to a track and did some limited track time and raced the car against Joey Legano who was driving (a Fast Five coupe), although there was some light rain so they did have to temper how hard he drove the car....but it looked like Kurt Busch was still pushing pretty hard on a damp track. I'd love to see them do another session in the dry. They did a pretty nice job with the show. Watch it if you can. The Pantera is awesome.

520 ft-lb torque limit.


Torque rating for 24 hour endurance events is 700Nm (520ft.lb). This is not a failure rating but an indication of life expectancy in long events with 100% reliability.

It means the same to me. The Pantera ZF is around 550 which many are exceeding now with little immediate issues.

It is intended as a guide to consider much like the maximum recommended rpm of an engine is.

Interpretation is left up to the user.

Few people have problems jumping off of a tall building. It is the landing that is the problem.

Caution should prevail. Big Grin

Thank You!


I let machinists split the hairs. They have the equipment and knowledge to do it right? Smiler
From the Hollinger website:
spur gear 6-speed which usually means no synchros, starts at $30K-up (in Aussie dollars?), weighs 20% more than a 6-speed ZF, either sequential or h-pattern shift and swappable gear ratios. The last IMHO is the only real advantage, and that only if you're racing, on someone else's money.
Not to split hairs, that's Marlin's thing, but I think the 6 spd ZF technically is an RBT?

Frankly, why even do a ring and pinion in your ZF? Those are $3000. Sell your ZF. Then buy the RBT from Loyd at RBT?

You can spec any ratios that you want to. With a 6 speed, you do not need to change out the 4.22.

You could have 5th and 6th as both overdrive.

Doug, Do you know how much the RBT 6-speed costs? I would venture to guess that if one sold his ZF-2 and added the $3,000 as you stated above. I doubt the sum would even come close to the cost of an RBT 6-Speed.
Doug so your saying the following:

$8,000 sell zf-2
$3,000 Ring and Pinion
$3,000 Labor for R&P

$14,000 Total

Can the RBT 6 speed be purchased for approximately this cost?

What attracts me to the Hollinger is the sequential clutch less shifting. The RBT-6 isn't a real advantage for me.
