Nice in-car video.
Do you put it in neutral after crossing the traps?

That's one bad ride for sure.
Kind of looks like your driving a caddy, nice clean straight pass.

So when are you going to tell people that you're really running a powerglide with overdrive.
Just messing with you, that's pretty impressive for a rock crushing c6.

Is there anything special that needs modified to the c-6 tranny to allow me to go to neutral after making a pass ? I've never attempted it, as I've always been leary thinking it would break something.

FWIW,.....I sold my old engine set-up and getting ready to start installing my new powerplant soon and I was just curious.
Oh,....BTW
I am running one of your V/B's
