Default Blown Tranny....

Well... I'm really starting to disbelieve the BFT crap... Sheared the 2 speed shaft clear in half... The 2 speed clutch, one way bearing and gears went along with it, today...

AE has given soo many excuses for blown trannies, i dont know what or who they will blame next. I know some guys on monster****rum.com had modified a savage gear to work in that tranny. However, the shaft you broke, i dont know how to remedy that. I've heard of SEVERAL other people with that problem. Good luck, and i hope you get it fixed.

I know why the shaft is blowing... It has a shoulder cut into it for the 2 speed clutch assembly, right before it goes back up to the size for the rest of the shaft there's a tiny groove in it... That groove gives a crack the perfect starting place... Kind of like the Savage dog bones, there's that little point where they shear perfectly... I swear they do it to screw us...
