ok i know that most of you guys are chevy boys but i know there are a few ford guys in here..

question: what kind of automatics are you using and is there a trick converter since the rules say "stock type converter that is a minimum of 11 inches with drain plug"..

has anyone had the converter place build one special for them??

thanks in advance for all ya all's help

if you have to use a ford automatic, use a c-4. a c-6 is a horsepower thief, an FMX is an elephant and an AOD is a waiting DNF.

i've found the best ford tranny for racing is the SROD manual. it's like a top loader only it has an aluminum case and internal shift linkage.

If you have to run a ford auto trans, c4 is definitely the way to go.

C-4 for automatic but I'm running a late 70's 3 spd toploader w/aluminum tail housing the bad thing with an auto is no push if your starter fails. I had 2 direct drive starters fail but am using gear reduction off a newer truck with 300 six works good so far.
