DI transmission talk

David is located about 10 miles from my house so it's makes sense to go with one of his transmissions but id like to get some feedback from people who have experience with his drivetrain.

I really like the BTS for the "lifetime" warranty but $450 to get a tranny there and back would suck incase something goes wrong.. Prob won't but just in case. Anybody have any other reasons I should go with DI besides the fact that they are very close?

David is a good guy that will stand behind what he does and tells you. Done lots of business with him over the years and he's never done me wrong.

Talking Re: DI transmission talk

Mr Lott is a cool dude, . I had a problem with a Regulator, and he went out of his way to get me the part I needed. I would say he stands behind his transmissions just as well as Brian does.

Re: DI transmission talk

Anyone can build a damn good transmission, but the warranty is what makes it worth any cost incurred in the initial investment. Find out what the warranty is going to be before spending any money anywhere. Because with 500hp, you're going to eventually find a need for a good warranty.

Re: DI transmission talk

BTS requests that you pay shipping If something breaks but the repair is free. I'm with junkie warranty is everything to me. I need tranny that will hold 500hp now and 600 later. This thing will see heavy abuse on and off the track. I just want to make sure David's is suited for high HP instead Of heavy towing as I tow nothing. David and Brian's Trannys are the exact same price so it's going to come down to warranty for me. We all know where BTS stands so unless DI can match that, well...

I'm gonna poke my head in this weekend and see what mr. Lott says about it
