Who has done a comparison between T350 and glide trans, with both leaving in Hi gear ? ET differences and longevity are a couple of my questions.

No rral world results aws asked for,just thoughts.
PG lighter,less rotatiing mass and should be quicker when using high gear only.

Both are 1:1 in high gear so as wide-open mentioned only real difference is weight and less rotating and drag. Plus a PG can be made to be a lot stronger for high hear only usage.

I would put money on the Powerglide over the TH350 all day to last longer.

10-4 Thanks. Was having a higear FB discussion and this came to mind, since I have a 350/converter sitting, I'm leaning glide anyway.

Foot, I don't know yet. I'm thinking about giving it a shot. I've never tried it personally. I kinda hope with 1750 lbs., a 488 gear, and this 23 tire on old SG car with no stagger, would be a decent candidate for that. Just had the thought bouncing around

I'm 2070 in my roadster, 14x32, 4.56 (now 4.88) only a 5.90 car and have left in high gear at different times. Cutting a light isn't a problem. Just added 300-500 rpm and after a few laps it's just like any other time. I did it the very last lap last year. The track went away so I dialed up and put 'er in high. .046 (hadn't done it in a while), went from 5.94s when the track was okay to what would have been mid 6.20something. I was pedaling it at the stripe.

Can't go deep round here. Plus in that lightweight car he won't need to.
