Alright, my transmission rules are stated below. The car is about 3,000lbs and 400-500hp. The track is a high banked 1/4 mile...Very fast. What should I run for a tranny? Please take weight, cost and relability into account. Thanks in advance!

"Stock factory type transmissions only. Single disc factory type clutch only. No high-dollar clutches, or aluminum flywheels. 180 1/4" thick scatter shield (blow-proof) mandatory. Automatic transmissions must run a torque converter. No trick transmissions. All transmissions must have a working torque converter."

Ive ran a 3-speed Saginaw since 91 and have had no problems at all as a matter of fact its the same 3-speed from 91. I do have 2 others in the shop just incase. I run an additve in it to help it. This year im going to switch to a powerglide it will lighten the car up a bit. Eddie
