    Well I was on my way back to school today, when I guess my tranny, a 700r4, decided it had other plans and proceeded to release it's contents upon the highway. Luckily I was able to get it into a Park-n-Ride lot where it sits now as I type.

    P.S. Any of you guys know a good tranny shop in the Denver area?

    Theres a guy in my town that has a C4 transmission for a mailbox. This would be a good way to "immortalize" it if you dont get it repaired (it sounded like you were really attached to it) [​IMG]
