The SMR COMPETITION ELIMINATOR
- An SMR exclusive, PRECISION LAZER CUT, STAINLESS STEEL SEPARATOR PLATE.
This feature permits high apply pressures without the crossflows and warpage that can occur with standard steel plates;
-ANTI-DRAINBACK VALVING which prevents fluid aeration, resulting
in greater clutch capacity, improved converter apply and hold, increased cooling and lubrication, more consistant e.t. performance
and greater reliability;
-FLUID CHECK IN PARK eliminates the dangerous act of checking
the fluid level in Neutral;
-FULL TIME LUBRICATION provides fluid circulation in all
positions to decrease wear and provide improved cooling;
-INCREASED CONVERTER APPLY PRESSURE provide greater cooling
of high clutches and greater fluid torque transfer, reducing converter slippage generating less heat and improved performance;
-LOW GEAR COAST SPRAG SAFETY feature only allows downshift
to 1st at a stopped or no load situation. This is to protect the roller clutch from possible severe damage. Shifting to low
at a higher speed will result in a neutrallized coasting.;
-FULL OPERATING LINE PRESSURE eliminates
the need for throttle linkage
-THE REVERSE PATTERN (P-R-N-1-2-3) INTERCHANGES THE DRIVE
AND LOW (3rd and 1st) positions so you are always shifting away from Neutral and pulling back with the natural force of acceleration.
This model is best suited to Competition Applications but can also be used on very high performance
street applications where performance and reliability is required. Street operation does require full shifting and careful
use of 1st gear.
LOW BAND APPLY OPTION: When
using the Competition Eliminator Valvebody for street applications, the optional low band apply feature,
allows the driver to down shift into low without coming to a near stop and remains in low gear (without
the freewheel 1st gear sprag protection of our standard C/E Reverse pattern valvebody) until another gear is selected.
The low band apply feature prevents damage to the sprag in street use where spinning on gravel then
hitting asphalt under acceleration or lifting in 1st gear then rapidly accelerating again without upshifting may occur in
However, due to the inherent shift sequence involved with having the low band applied in 1st gear and
needing to release this band and simultaniously apply the intermediate band to obtain 2nd gear, the 1-2 shift
with this valvebody option (and all other brands of low band apply valvebodies), is not as
quick or clean as our standard Competition Eliminator valvebody. Therefore, the low band apply option
is NOT RECOMMENDED for COMPETITION applications.
