Yes trucks are lighter in the rear but if you know how to drive them & work the motor & gears you shouldnt have a problem driving. I have spent countless hours behind the wheel on dirt at high speed in both 2& 4 wheel trucks.

TRB, I could do without the trip to college. If you paid to set it up I would be glad to give it a whirl.

How could an auto trans shift, either up or down, with a manual valve body? It is basically a manual trans with a fluid coupling.

Our competition valve body for maximum performance and quick elapsed times in a racing application. By controlling the valve body only through manual means we can produce quicker shift timing and are able to run higher line pressures than possible with an automatic shift transmission. Higher line pressure makes it harder for clutches to slip under high loads. Remember, with a full manual you will have to make every shift, for these units do not shift on their own. A great choice for bracket cars, monster trucks, and virtually any off-road competition vehicle where a Trans-Brake is either not legal or not desired.
After rereading my other post, what i said could be very easily misunderstood. I meant a full manual valve bodied automatic transmission.
