S10RACER.COM & V8S10.ORG - Central Florida MINI MEET

Postby Rickracer » Sat Apr 25, 2015 5:56 am

We will be having a V8 S10 mini meet at OSW (Orlando Speed World) on Sunday, May 3rd, 2015. Guys from this forum and S10Racer.com will be there. I'm bringing my twin turbo Vega as well. If you live in Florida, try to make it, even if you can't bring your truck, it will still be a good time, to hang out, bench race, and watch some of these trucks we love blasting down the strip. I'm SURE a good time will be had by all, :thumbup: :thumbup:

Most people have gone to facebook groups but this site has always been going no matter how slow it gets. Lots of people check the site and few still post

hope you are ok down there with the hurricane and all..
I do have a question.. since you are running the 700R4.. did you have to run a lock up switch?
if so how does that work? do you leave it on all the time or do you have to switch it on at hyway speed
thanks

Yeah flooding but the S10 is fine. Got some water in our place through a leaky window but it will be ok.


I am running a full manual valve body, when I had the trans built I told them I am keeping lock up in 4th gear. They told me which was positive and negative on the plug. So I bought a new pig tail and ran negative to ground and the positive is to a 12v source. Once I hit 45mph in 4th gear I flip the switch and the TC locks up. Turn the switch off and it unlocks.

I have a B&M Pro Ratchet shifter so I made a little bracket and attached it to the back of the shifter. My hand is always on it when cruising on case someone pulls out in front of me and I can flip it quick. You can wire a brake interruption switch through the circuit if you want to.
