I've noticed that fluid still gets to the rear as well, but I still haven't had an issue with starvation I did before blocking off the lower plates. Once I blocked off the plates the trans has pretty much been a non-issue compared to before. I haven't even drained the rear fluid. Maybe I'll go do that to see how much comes out to add to this thread as an update.
The only issue I have now is that I'm not 100% sure that the trans is going into first gear. Mine is in an FToy and is not ECU controlled. The previous owner setup some wiring with relays that allow it to run "right" and shift manually. I can lockup the TCC with a button too.
Anybody know the wiring for these?

Has anyone else entirely blocked those lower galleys and experienced this?
