I changed from a glide to a 3 spd and was amazed with the diff. same everything else but the car is significantly faster. but also driving styles have to be modified, automatics are easier to drive for sure and more controlable.

I agree with Bob, I had the glide in the car about 6 years ago for a race to try it out, the car was untouchable on the 5/8 till the motor popped, the next season I put the 3 speed in here and also was great, next year in the new car im putting the glide back in it to try it again, why the glide is a heck of alot lighter than the 3 speed ans scattersheild so it should cut down about 100lbs or so.

I ditched my direct drive glide for a triple disc 3 speed and never looked back. My experience was that the 3 speed feels a ton better under acceleration and has more solid shifts. This was just my experience, I might have had a bad 'glide, but I'll never go bak to a slush box.
