    the car will hold up to a sh.18 or vx.18....the sh will be more powerfull....however I dont think the car would hold up to a os tz .18....but then again not many will

    Ya there is a grub screw on the tranny that you tighten, and it makes it shift later, or not at all. Its the one thats off center.
