Do those jeeps have manual transmissions? It sounded like it in the video.

I think the far one was a stick, but the close one was an auto

both jeeps are manual.


Yellow jeep = TJEli.

4.0,NV3550,231, to 4.88 gears with 35" Toyo MTs. His jeep is pretty heavy. Full doors, tons of armor, full cage, full interior, and custom stereo. I was really surprised at his time.

The white jeep = Dirk + Double Duty.

4.0,NV3550, Atlas 4.3,5.38 gears to 40" MT/Rs. Dirk ran down the track with his ARB locked up. Dirks jeep is a confirmed 5005 lbs. I'm sure the only reason his times were slower is cause he can't drive.

I have a hard time with the leg wobbles. Couple times I've been going up a steep incline or something and my leg starts to shake. Then I can't hold the clutch in!

I am going to run the auto to help suck up some of the bump when wheelin. The torque converter allows you more play room than a 5 speed and you don't have to have as much gearing for the same size tire. For the way I wheel I feel I will have more control over my tires with the auto.

I don't think those are bad times at all, considering that is not what they where built for. I am impressed!
