It turns out automatics can only take so much power. Started slipping last fall. Added some more performance parts, then completely blew up at the autocross. You can see puffs of smoke from under the car on the last few turns.

Don't worry, adding a 3rd pedal
Some good will always come with breaking things; you get to replace them with better parts


So the lesson here boys and girls, don't bother tracking/racing your volvo with an automatic if you don't have a tranny cooler.

Re: The demise of my tranny (Wagoneer)

About time you torched your tranny. A manual conversion is needed for sure!
