The β€˜72 Javelin w/ a 401 and 727 auto keeps getting picked, but the guy with the fastest stock car has a β€˜71 Javelin w/ a 401 and a Borg Warner M12. 

No AMC’er wants to admit that the BW M12 auto is actually a pretty good tranny, lol.

The Borg-Warner M-12 has a more efficient gear train than most automatics.  The biggest problem is the cast iron center support will break under high horsepower and the bands need to be adjusted every 12k miles on the early ones.   The later FMX versions holdup much better.
 
Most people don't know they were used in Fords (starting in 1951), Studes, AMC's, Jags and several
European cars for several decades.

My AMX at the Pure Stock Drags. He didn't get all the facts quite right in the video, but it turned out pretty good! I was paired up with the GTO on Saturday for the best out of 3 shootout. Super nice guy, and he took it well πŸ˜‹

Nice work Joe!

Great hanging out with you over both days.

The 65 GTO (beautiful car) ran good too and Bruce the owner really is a class act.


You were clicking through the gears like Ronnie Sox on steroids Thumbs Up
