i run a 5sp stick in mine
i've ran a stick in mine for 15 years,FE power though,and once i went through the learning curve which took a couple of years ,i have been happy with racing it .i upgraded parts as they broke.i have a HRM center section w/billet caps,strange 35 spline spool,moser 35 spline axles,big web housing with back brace ,daytona pinion support ,street richmond 4.56 gear(lasts about 60 passes),1330 joints and yokes ,but will up grade to 1350 before the 385 goes in .25 years old nash 4+1 trans that has only broke one time.i would guess it has about 1000 passes on it .my car is a 69 fb with 10.5W x 31 and has run 1.39 in 60 ft. it weighs 3220 with me in it .my advice ,if your going to run stick buy quality parts ,shifter (no $100 specials),clutch from a maker that caters to super stockers,racing trans ,jerico,g force,liberty,and of course safty stuff ,flywheel,scattersheild,driveshaft loop.PRO's unlimited stall speed(very adjustable),great gear selection(keep motor in narrow power band )more time at max HP.alter ET by shift points,in house maintence,.just my thoughts . ron
