ive read somewhere u can build a 200 4r to handle more power than a 700 r4.i could be wrong,but actually im doin a build similar and i pulled out the metric trans for the 400 i got lying around

I've got a 200 4R in my 1979 Elky, it's been in there since 2001, it's built with all the Grand National parts, double ring servo,etc. I don't have much HP just a 350 with trickflow heads, headers, and a 750 carb, 373 gears. It been down the 1/8 at .846, and driving it to and from the track, or anywhere else i want to go. I'm not saying it's stronger than a 700 R4, but it's lighter for sure and it works for me. I do have the manuel lockup switch for the converter, although it goes into overdrive without activating the switch.

Yep, and it's purty too :) I've owned it since 1987, rolled out of the paint booth, Dec. 24,1988, ground up restro. Still looks the same, with same paint, the grille needs replacing because it's plastic and the crome has faded, also the grille badge. I'll never sell it, i'll die with it. Plus it's twin's to my race car, but a couple seconds slower.

Heck Charles that car relites almost anywhere i go, 2 weeks ago i rolled in .020 in the box and leaving on the last yellow which i seen clearly, and had a .487 red and was on the trailer early. It seems like a roll of the dice almost on every pass, because i just can't get up to use the delay box on the top bulb, i don't know why must be old age or something.
