Don't mean to but in on this Post but how do you check to see if your converter is slipping
Thanks Andy

Marco Abruzzi is building a fantastic converter at a very, very reasonable price.

[((rpm X tire diameter)/(rear end ratio x trans ratio x mph x 336))-1] x 100 or use the caculator on TCI's website......

Not typical of bracket racers but we have four Neal Chance converters. 2 bolt together and 2 welded. Marty has been a big help to us every time. They have always performed well and all are very consistent.

I see several big names
TSI ,TCI, ATI,BTE, Abruzzi, Coan, Chance, Continental, Hughes, PTC and one round blue one or maybe 2

but I didn't see anyone mention gaines from a previous converter. I also didn't see a major slant for one converter manufacture or another. I was hoping to see a lot more posts so readers can get a feeling for what everyone is running.

Other brands that I know drag racers are running but didn't see any posts for are Edge, JW, FTI, TCS and others.

Keep them coming guys. The more information that is on here the more helpful it will be to all.

Thanks.
