It's not a Ram Coupler, I helped develop it on the West Coast when they came out. They have to have the RPM matched to the drivetrain to fullly hooked up the coupler otherwise they grind.But they are low rotating weight.

Hey ...... Now I know who you are !!! It's cool to see you on here ! Wow , Antioch ...... seems like ages ago when we were racing there . I used to love that track !! Is Don still racing anywhere ?? I was at Antioch in late July , and raced Bart Reeds modified for him ,#12A , man has that place changed over the years !! Still had a good time though , won the heat ..... and got 4th in the main after being in every single caution . It was great to see everyone that I hadn't seen in so many years ! Send me an email sometime if you get a chance , and we can catch up on the good old day's ..LOL !

If I remember correctly it is a Crower Glide.
They are good as long as it is in good shape. You can adjust the engage rpm

Don't know what type Stock car your putting this in but if it happens to be an I-Stock car the triple disc. is not legal and by experience will be checked.
