Re: 9500 Mile update

Just curious but does high rep power coincide with attacking other posters or am I misinterpreting things here?

Re: 2014 JGC Transmission Survey

I understand it is skewed. I expect the real number to be closer to 10 to 20% as I have said in previous posts. That would still be ridiculously high for tranny problems imo.

Re: 2014 JGC Transmission Survey
