Any suggestions for setting up a Muncie? Remove any gears, or?? It is a wide range. (Two grooves on the shaft) Also, any update on the IMCA manual transmission rules? I belive there was a Federal lawsuit filed in North Dakota and don't know if there has been any resolution. Anyone know? Anybody?

Well as for your transmission question I don't have any advice....I assume your referring to Mr Brookings. He won the lawsuit against WISSOTA. The agreement is that his transmissions were reinstated as legal this season thus allowing a Bert type trans for next season. I don't know how the IMCA case is going if it hasn't already gone, but the WISSOTA case could get him a retrial?

Thanks KK17. I know the Berts etc are kinda pricey but it seems to me it evens out when you don't have to change trans 2 or 3 times a season. Think I'll keep my Muncie in stock condition, that way I can always use it in other applications.

I run a Muncie with third and reverse lightened. Run it in fourth (stock gear) and a 7.00 rear end gear...rev's really quick (with a triple disk) and I would definitely recommend running it that way!

Berts are nice if you have the horsepower to drive them, and the track that can take the horsepower

I will stick with the ol 3 speed saginaw for now. works like a dream, with the 5" clutch.

Can't afford the big horsepower!
