Can we(I) ask a couple questions? What number were you on the list? And if you have a tracking number, I a assuming to already paid? How long ago did you pay your deposit?

The answers may give us who are still waiting a clue as to the process.

Sorry, off the radar for a few days...I'm not on too much anymore, personal reasons.
I was indeed #48, and I completed my down payment earlier this year,
paid in full a couple of weeks ago.There were some slider issues that I had to wait to get resolved, and I was OK with that.All reports I have heard say this is the one you want.
I am no engineer, but the BEST 18 spline boxes I have had (many many 4 speed 440 cars)all rattled even with new bearings, and are a bit noisy at highway speed.They shift pretty good, but still clash if I yank 'em too fast.
The rollerized/tapered timken bearing stuff in the 855,the aluminum cases, the o-ring seals, the revised shifter arrangement all sound VERY promising.
Hope this is informative.

So...you're #48 and you still don't have a trans.

Sheesh.

Hello Everyone,
Let me try to address some issues I saw questions on.

First,
Our website and Email server was down for an entire week for a server migration that was supposed to take an hour. I'm not a techie so I didn't have control over that. Regarding the list. There is no possible way to go in the exact order of the list. Due to variations in configurations, it isn't possible. PLEASE keep that in mind.

Second,
If anyone has questions, call or email me to conform place on the list. I have always allowed this.

Third,
The last year of life has been without a doubt the most challenging on every front for me. This is why I have not been on this board in a long time. Quite honestly, other things have taken priority over this board. Some of you cannot accept that and this shows by some comments that are made on this board. I do not take them personally so, I have no ill will, but just please in the future, before you spout off the snide comments without considering things, just take a deep breath and think about whats going on.

Fourth,
Regarding the pop out condition, some early units had a problem. The method of testing used at that time, did not catch it. The sliders were redesigned to take care of this problem. We have had favorable results. This is why the testing procedure was completely changed and at this point, every unit is test run in a car to confirm proper function.

I want NOTHING more than to have a ton of happy customers so, believe me, We are doing our best to make sure that things get out of here as quickly as possible. We are finally making some headway. If anyone has an early unit this is having problems, let me know so that we can get any issues taken care of.

Jamie

Jamie

I want to step up and speak to what I personally know about all this.
FACT:
The Passon website and server were messed up awhile back.Jamie and I used other channels to keep in touch,there was no real 'blackout'and as always, he kept me in the loop.He was transparent with me from day one that the list number jumped all over based on which box was in production and which parts were in supply to build what unit.
FACT:
Jamie has ALWAYS responded to my PMs e-mails or FB messages.
FACT:
Although I do not know about other things our friend might be dealing with, it is no secret the 855 saga has been ridiculously stressful, time and dollar consuming, and Jamie is still trying hard to ramp up to full production, and get the boxes to the buyers and would be buyers.Part of this is things like the slider issue (solved) which he did NOT want to end up in our cars.Taking the time and trouble to install and run every unit in a vehicle demonstrates to me how serious this person is about giving me the absolute best unit humanly possible.
FACT: I will say that Jamie is 100% a man of his word, and went above and beyond to get me my 855 in a timely manner and I will have zero reservations buying from him in the future.

BTW MY 855 is here...My God this thing is beautiful.The machining is super clean, the shifter and all associated hardware is well built and solid...If she runs as good as she looks (and I have no doubt) I will have some great stories to tell.

As much as I am a proponent of 6 speeds...

I still think that it is awesome that you are making a transmission here in the USA. I am always trying to find Made in USA parts, tools etc. & its downright impossible sometimes to find quality stuff. Heck my Tremec trans is Hecho en Mexico!

I have some idea of how hard it is to produce plastic `Cuda spoilers, but absolutely no idea of how difficult it is to bring a 5 speed trans into production, so my hats off to you sir!

When your A-866 six-speed eventually comes out I will probably be trying to talk everyone into installing the new Tremec T57 7-speed trans, so go figure? haha!

Good luck with the transmission and I hope you sell a ton of them!

I think that would be post #2058649 for those like myself who have a different post count per page in their "My stuff/Edit preferences. For example I'm on page 31 now.

Thanks for the photos. It's good to see another unit in the hands of a customer. That means I'm one shorter on the list :-)
Keep us informed on your progress.

It is good to see another actual unit has been produced. Maybe now, after five years, things have worked out to where he can start trickeling them out more steadily. Let us know how it works for you.
