I RUN A STREET STOCK CLASS AND WE ARE REQUIRED TO RUN AUTO TRANNIES. I HAVE A 350 TURBO TRANNY WITH A SHIFT KIT INSTALLED. WAS WONDERING IF ANYBODY HAS ANY IDEAS OR THOUGHTS ON RUNNING VEGA TORQUE CONVERTER TO LOWER SPINNING WEIGHT. DOES IT WORK BETTER AND HELP COMING OUT OF CORNERS OR DOES IT JUST MAKE YOUR TRANNY RUN HOTTER WITH LITTLE RESULTS ON TRACK? THANKS--

lowering your rotation weight will help all over the place faster revs but if i was you i'd look into a dummy converter and manual valve body instead check out tci they have that setup think i might give it a try myself this year. a shift kit in a dirt car is pretty much a waste of money once you pull out on the track you shouldn't be shifting some guys swear by it but those are the guys that are roasting the tire off and missing shifts as i drive by um lol
