Of the many places in the world that you would expect to find world-class racecar engineers, Kalamazoo may not be at the top of your list. However, after this weekend, Professional Awesome thinks it should be. We met up with TRE’s Jon Ripple, an all-around cool dude and gearbox genius to pick up our newly refreshed and upgraded transmission and transfer case. As was the case with our last trip, Jon welcomed us into his shop and treated us to an incredibly in-depth discussion on the finer points of transmission technology and gave us a full walkthrough of our newly […]
