big steve is real sharp and knows his stuff
ken mine a 245 but she solid on the hit
Not sure how long Mike's car is but mine is 248 with shocks and proves you don't need to have a 270 inch carbon Spitzer to go fast. It will run well into the 5.9x range if I let it. Conventional head Chevy to. I believe both JR and Rusty Baxters cars are about the same length and just as fast
Thats because I stay at the Holiday inn Express and run a Abruzzi converter
If it hooks nice and you got more power and don't want to spend more cash, turn it up..
I thought you stated your were blowing the tires off...
You said u wanted to go as fast as possible which is now not the case. Make your mind up.
I have tried a lot of different converters in my TD deal - I think 9 different converters/setups. Maybe that's what Top38 is talking about needing to get involved
JR got me talking to Coan a few years ago and then I learned Eddie Select was a Coan dealer and got a Coan thru him. Haven't changed converters/stators since. Both are very knowledgeable.
Another plus for Coan/Eddie they are very astute in reading a Racepak graph.
I have had coan and fti build several and adjust several over the years . Furnished dyno sheets and the whole nine yards of data on the first builds . After sending back and having adjusted or buying another I never saw discernable difference in any changes . Both manufacturers were consistent but not fast as I thought they should be , not bad just matter of fact not as quick as they should be . My next ones will be bought somewhere else and I will see if there if they are any different .....lol.....
exactly what im talking about

I'd say most top tier builders can provide this although most have their specialty when it comes to engine combinations.
That being said, most racers and a lot of engine builders "can't" provide the correct power numbers. This most certainly effects how the converter works. For some reason, most think they have more power than they actually do.
You hit the nail on the head Scott.

The variables torque converter companies can't control are the input shaft, stator tube and line pressures in play.
Until optimum is discovered, it's an erratic claim to say x converter isn't fast in comparison to y converter.
If you know what you can get away with as far as line pressure goes, your leaps and bounds ahead on a baseline. The less, the better.
I know one that's pretty fast with way to much pressure. Work on that and it would be a little quicker faster.
There's also adjustment to be had in flow.

If it were me, I'd have two transmissions. One for the fast qualifying session, I'd freshen in between for the final rd. If it were heads up first to the finish line racing.
