TREMEC Releases New TKX 5-Speed RWD Transmission- Available through McLeod Racing 

ANAHEIM, CA – TREMEC releases their new compact 5-speed transmission called the TKX. The TKX is perfect for a restoration or an upgrade for a classic muscle car, 1930s-era roadster coupe or any application where space is an issue. The compact design means little if any tunnel modifications in most applications.

The TKX took a forward-looking approach to finding the best and most efficient solution for a 5-speed RWD manual transmission. The end result is superior shift-ability with smooth shifts at high RPMS through the use of multi-cone synchronizers and hybrid synchronizer rings. At the same time, noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) performance is optimized with a gear layout to best control stress levels, while providing structural stiffness with a ribbed, 3-piece aluminum housing. Durability is further optimized with oversized gear widths, gaskets at all flanges, and caged needle bearings in all gear positions.

“We listened to our customers, combined their suggestions with our OEM technology and strengthened our aftermarket line up with the addition of the TKX,” says Mike Kidd, aftermarket business unit manager of TREMEC.

Pat Musi Racing Engines Open House Postponed

MOORESVILLE, NC — Taking an abundance of caution regarding COVID-19 exposure at its facility, Pat Musi Racing Engines has postponed its open house, which was originally scheduled to take place on Saturday, November 14.

The event, which will celebrate the company’s 50th year in business as well as another banner racing season, will be postponed to a later date. It was a disappointing decision for Pat Musi, but taking extra precautions and ensuring the safety of everyone during the ongoing public health crisis remained his first priority.

“It’s obviously frustrating to postpone this event. We had put a lot of time and effort into it, and we were really looking forward to interacting with all the fans and our partners,” Musi said. “But the health and safety of our team, as well as everyone who had planned on coming, takes precedence. It’s been a challenging year, but we’ll keep pushing forward and we look forward to having a great event in the near future.”

The open house will allow for fans to talk with Musi and his team, along with star driver Lizzy Musi, who will be on hand for autographs. Her Edelbrock-equipped “Aftershock” Camaro from the popular Street Outlaws television series and the Frank Brandao-owned Edelbrock/Lucas Oil “King Kong 7” 2018 Dodge Dart will both be on display as well during the celebratory open house.
