It looks like they may have notified the top 3 that were selected. I am bummed that I was not picked, but still very excited for making the Dirty Dozen! If it doesn't work out this year, you can bet I will reapply for next years.

Shucks! Congrats on making the top dozen this year! That's really great, and nice to see flat fenders represented. You've built a very cool rig deserving of the recognition!

do you have a tranny temp gauge? I'm interested to see how your 4l60 likes those 40s aired down w/ the 4.88 gears, heat wise....

5.38s or 5.86/5.83 will help a bunch if heat becomes your enemy

Yes I have a digital gauge and there is no heat issues with the tranny, however, I am running a large tranny cooler and mounted my lines away from the exhaust.

This is the cooler that I am running same as the b&m without the name price; https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
