Pretty good deal. It would work. Might require regearing though.

It would work but both Brian (Fusion) and Karl Scanlan both mentioned the weak case on mendi"s. If you compare it to the Weddle, http://ranchotransaxles.com/weddle-transaxles.html it's a big difference in strength. They both recommended different builders but agreed on the case. I like the HV1. I'm going to talk to Folts when I get a Chance to see what price I can get.
Once I decide and purchase the trans, I will be looking for a back-up like that one. I wouldn't really care if the gearing is off a bit. As long as it would work.

Whatever backup you have will need the same mounting points as your primary trans. Or maybe you can build some adapters to get it to fit. Otherwise it would be useless. I'd say go with the HV-1 and trans cooler and call it a day. Pull the trigger and you can have it done by the next race.

The HV-1 is what I'm looking at. I just need to get down there and talk to someone. I want to know what other cases or trannys use the same mounts. The cooler is a smart idea. The car had a trans gauge in it when I bought it but no cooler.

Plus with an external cooler and filter, you can change out the fluid way easier and increase capacity. Win/win.

I have a better idea, Sell your buggie and buy this http://www.race-dezert.com/cgi-bin/trader/atl.cgi?ct=5&md=second&id=9648 then come race BITD, we could use the competition. 8100 is one of the top classes when it comes to pay back.

I think he should keep the buggy and use it as the prerunner for the Fabtech truck. FTW!

I'm thinking next race vehicle will be a truck, I like sitting up higher. That's a good deal. Timing is a little off for me :(
