I have seen several cars with both, I am just curious which one seems faster to you guys.

Go with the powerglide.

Any certain reason?

I've seen both at my track also. The Glides
are supposed to be about 30 lbs. lighter
and supposed to hold up better. I don't
know if the weight is that critical in this
class. I've seen guys have the same success
with the Turbo 350's running them in second
gear. As Glides get harder to find, I think
more people will end up going to the 350's
in the future.

I used to use glides but went through too many and now I use standards and I love it more because it doesn't seem to slip.
Thanks John

If you dont have to use the convertor go with the Glide. Otherwise go with a good standard.
