loses 6 lbs of rotating weight and if you know how a C6 works it makes real sense , in 2nd it's held by the band and on the 2-3 shift it needs to go to engine speed from a dead stop , which ?will get to engine speed first an aluminum drum at 3 lb's or a stock drum at over 9 lb's !!

Be Frank with me.....
are you going to keep these in stock long term, or is this a one time manufacturing deal?

(ie I'd love to have one, but don't need one in the near future)

Thanks!

Well, lets say including initial tooling and startup these things cost Frank $500 each to make.
That is only really 40 of them.... I think it was a fair question.

I'll be stocking them

PS the 20K was to get this project going and nothing to do with the cost of the drums

Correct me if I am wrong Frank, but I believe the TCI has only 5-6 clutches which are NOT included for about $800.00 US yours has 7 clutches and comes loaded at $840.00 or $100.00 less than the TCI bare...Sounds like a bargain to me Rolling Eyes
