Anyone try one of these yet, they are cheaper and weigh close to the same.

Kevin Stoa runs one when he goes to the open shows and Steve Borts of Ames, Ia runs one in his late model... Both say its as good as anything else.

I thought the Falcon was an external clutch? Or do they also make an external clutch?

Its definitely an internal clutch unit... I have not seen an external clutch Falcon... Its possible that there IS one, but I doubt it.

We run a Falcon, beside Bert and Brinn trannys I would recommend them to anyone, light durable, low maintence, we just put 1quart of B&M trick shift in and go. Also it has that cool clutch squal!

I haven't measured it, but JR Motorsports in Ankeny, IA has one on their counter that could be the same length as the saginaw. I haven't asked, either.

I dont know the exact length, but we changed from a powerglide to the falcon, and we are still using the same length driveshaft. and 43# is just about right, we weighed ours with the stock GM bellhousing, and one quart of fluid, and it came to like 47# total, a ton lighter than the glide.

I know a few guys running falcons with no problems. I'm not sure were to get info on them, but I could probabaly get you some. If you need a price for one, I can get your zip code and tell you what it would cost to get one to your door. The Falcons mount up to a standard bell housing, but they offer a bell housing and reverse mount starter. let me know if I can help you guys. ltr spde.

They have been approved for 2003 as far as Mark knows. He was told that they were A-ok by the UMP tech man.

I hope that is true stick, cause i've been wanting to get a set. I know this summer at I-55 they said that they were not legal to use from here on out.
