Oh alright well that's a very good reason.. we are also trying to make the Genesis Coupe as reliable as possible.
As of right now the plan is to get a new trans put in. We used the OEM trans last season without any issues, but this season we will be making more power/tq

Oh nice that's pretty cool, you have to get some good pictures of the Genesis Coupe :) lol. Be sure to stop by our pit area! I'll be at a few of the races, but we will have guys from ARK at every event.
