    Sooooo, the damn Greek Tragedy continues.

    Drive shaft #2 arrived yesterday, trans was bolted back in and ready to he tuned this morning.

    I playfully text "Are we making 1000 horsepower yet?"

    I get, "Life is not being kind, I'll call you in a bit with details"

    This can't be good. After talking to him, he sends me pics....

    I thought that was the external cooling setup?

    I've been looking at these pictures all day and I'm still boggled. I'm guessing the vibration was in the trans and not the driveshaft. Man that just sucks.

    I just landed in Boston.

    It's supposed to be a BST-1200HD8 that's supposed to hold 1200 horses.

    All I know for sure is that it let go during the dyno tuning this morning. Better there than on my way from VA to DFW for fact.

    Transmission builder is supposedly already starting on the replacement, and word was sent to GForce to get a new driveshaft on the way. A new and revised time frame isn't available, but it doesn't look like I'm going to make the dyno day in Dunn, NC.

    Sorry to hear Billy. Ask whether there is video of the incident. If so, get a copy.

    The lawyer is going to represent me in a breach of contract lawsuit.

    There have been 2 different promise dates, the most recent was September 12. I'm tired of waiting and I'm tired of excuses.

    He called me on the 15th of November to tell me the last parts were there (trans and Chromoly 2 piece driveshaft) and that all that was left was to install them and make a brace/bridge for the driveshaft.

    Last Monday I was told there were two people working on the brace. Today, my car is still not finished, the interior isn't in, and I was told that it would not be ready this week either.

    My patience is spent. This is a $36k+ build that is 4 months overdue. I can't ask for the car back because instead of building another engine and trans as I was told, he used mine to build, so I can't say "Put my stuff back in the car and I'll be there Friday to get it"

    As Dalton said, "Be nice until it's time to not be nice." That time has come.
