-OUR MOST POPULAR CONVERTER SERIES-
APPLICATIONS UP TO 600 H.P.
These Race Built converters provide superb performance, reliability and efficiency in most
Street, Street/Strip, High Performance and Bracket Racing applications.
IN RACING APPLICATIONS, the unique design of this converter line, provides the
flash stall most suited to the torqueband of the specific engine,*
[The flash stall is the r.p.m. point that is obtained under
the full throttle launch off the starting line after the brakes have been fully released] WITH
MINIMUM SLIPPAGE throughout the power range. By reducing slippage after the launch, more of the torque
can be utilized to power the vehicle resulting in more miles per hour without r.p.m. increase, reduced
heat and engine wear.
* At flash stall, the converter multiplies the torque being produced by the engine at
that specific r.p.m. by up to 2.5 times, to the drivetrain. The further into the powerband of the engine, that flash
stall occurs, the higher the torque number that you multiply, resulting in much more power to the rear tires to accelerate
the vehicle. Ideally, a flash stall at the peak torque rpm of your engine will produce the best race perforrmance.
FOR STREET APPLICATIONS, the unique design also makes
these converters an excellant choice for any vehicles with aftermarket camshafts and/or performance improving upgrades
used on the street. Our 10 3/4" ProSportsman,is a very streetable converter, without the normal throttle r.p.m.
flair up and the need to rev the engine to get it moving, encountered with other brands of converters.
Even when used with overdrive, steep rear gear ratios (eg: 3.23:1), our 10 3/4" unit
operates like a stock converter, under normal driving conditions both around town and on the open highway.
When used with engines with increased duration, higher lift camshafts, this, converter
will absorb the lope and surging at idle when sitting a traffic light or in traffic in gear, to prevent stalling
and engine load-up, making such modified engines much more streetable.
However, just like under race conditions, when the accelerator
is floored from a standing start, the converter flashes to its' designed r.p.m., pauses at this r.p.m. point while multiplying torque to the driveline (by up to 2.5 times what the engine produces)
until the driveline reaches this speed and then the rpm increases as it would with a stock converter.
