I know of two of them that are being run here in OKC, one is in our pro-stock car, and the other it in a modified. As far as parts, I think that Larson Racing in Iowa deals with these types of trannys, I think that they are kinda pricey but i cant remember. We didnt have to get any parts for ours because ours came complete.

Reliable, yes, but not as relaible as a standard Muncie/tilton setup. Parts thru Wayne Larson racing or direct from ernie Slide in fargo ND, they are almost impossible to get a hold of though. Worth an honest 300 RPM from the muncie/tilton setup and static weigh is 32# less total, that is figuring the Ernie bellhousing vs. reg. Lakewood type housing also.

We have had no problems with our Falcon, the only thing we had to have done was the tailshaft cracked due to the pinion nut working loose and tossed the drive shaft out. Other than that we havent had it tore apart or anything going on 2 full seasons, just change the fluid after every two race nites.

Three years of 50 plus nights on my falcon. Never spent a dime on it. tear it apart every year and put it back together.
