The problem with the converter slipping excessively isn't consistency, it's deceleration. The closer the engine is one to one with the driveshaft, the more efficiently/better the car decelerates, consistently. Especially spragless. According to the fundamentals it's not a subjective matter.

have you ever tried a different first gear?


No sir, trying to keep all three cars with the same ratios in trans, rear gear and all have same converter from Abruzzi to interchange parts when necessary.

Smart move. Simplify . Plus you can carry one spare of each and all 3 cars are covered. Firm believer in if you have a spare it helps reduce breakage of other. Really no effect except you don't feel it as bad when you just throw another one in.LOL
