Just found out there is an EVO X entered. I believe this is SST too. Can't wait to see how it did.

Could be interesting. It also could be disastrous for that transmission. I wonder what they have done to it.

I rather them use the SST to test it out as much as possible. Let these companies put the tranny through hell and see what happens.

If by "much better" you mean that the SST can't handle high horsepower, doesn't launch as hard, is heavier, and has more power loss, then you are absolutely right, it's "better". On a serious note, SST is a nice transmission but to say its "much better" is straight bullshit. Learn your facts.

They should have definitely used a 5 speed GSR to kick some ass out there.

Hi guys...

I don't post much, so please let me know if I'm breaking any rules here ; )

I was at the Nurburgring last month, as our team was running in the VLN, a 4 hour endurance race in which over 120 cars were competing. I was very pleased to see this EVO, in full racing spec.

I do confirm that it did have an SST transmission. Overall the car ran fine, and as far as I knew, had no major complications (our pit was only 2 doors away from theirs ; )

Just thought I'd offer this info and pics...hope you enjoy them.

Bob

What is the mod list on this car? Anything done with the SST? All SST owners should keep their fingers crossed, especially the driver. Good luck! SST is finally heading towards being a full-on racer!

Im not sure about the full list of mods, but what I do know is that the race car is a collaboration between TIC Racing and Getrag, who modified the SST transmission on this Evo.

Here is a press release that talks about it.

Happy reading ; )
