Building the engine plate and determining the setback really requires the whole driveline. Our trans of choice for Max Effort is Rockland Standard Gear’s (RSG) road race–prepped T56, called the Tranzilla. RSG specializes in building bulletproof racing transmissions for professional teams competing in the Grand-Am Cup endurance series, the Speed World Challenge, and SCCA T1 and T2 classes, so we really couldn’t ask for a more perfectly prepped six-speed for a track car. We went with the close-ratio option: 2.29, 1.60, 1.21, 1.00, .85, and .76. We’ll delve a little deeper into the specs on this bad boy later.
