    I'm not super smart, so I could be totally wrong but I was afraid that it was the clutch starting to slip at high RPMs. The clutch was rated for 700tq and I made 485hp on 7psi (160hp over it's NA numbers) with no timing, and was running 18psi at the track with some timing sprinkled back in, so it should have been making some steam. The next level up for clutches is $1200, and this Powerglide was $1500. I'm poor, so I'm trying to go fast as cheaply as possible, and a $1200 wear part isn't budget friendly lol.

    If you come across a cobra in the wild, wipe it off and apologize.

    • Makes sense. Looking froward to seeing the results of the switch. Guess we are all going to have to wait until spring?
