I could find out for you if you want to send it to Hawaii. Nice power! How's it drive?

I think your motor will last if you keep it on E85. Tranny, depending on how much heat you put it through. I always use Redline shockproof and knock on wood have never shredded any gear. I think a tranny cooler should be installed if you track it often.

I'm using Redline MT90 , and I do have a tranny cooler. Twenty min sessions and cool downs. I change the tranny fluid and Liqui Moly 5w40 engine oil every 500 min of track time or so.
It drives fantastic! Im up with the big boys now on the track , even on the straights.
Built motor and E153 is in the wing for now

Honestly, I would pickup up one of Blackwatch's C60 trans with his modified gear set. The gear ratios that you get with his setup will only help your car go faster. Switching to a E153 hurts the gear ratios thus keeps the motor out of the correct RPM band.
