That connector is a REALLY expensive military quality Amphenol connector, so it might not be a BS story. I wonder if up-armoring vehicles weighed them down to the point that a tricky transmission controller was required to get the vehicles to move at all (obviously, not HMMV's, etc, I was thinking about armored cars, etc).

I am worried about duxthe1's comments. I do know that newer MB computers pull back on the engine during shifts.

How 'bout a nice Turbo 400? You can't break one of those with a sledge hammer. Not exactly a paragon of efficiency, though...
