Summer is over. My best to date this year, as stated was an 11.59.
I posted this info on another thread a while ago, answering what my 60' time was for this pass and it was a 1.63.
As some of you had pointed out, my motor must be doing some big end make up for my 60' time being what it is.
I currently have an Edge Racing torque converter set at 3000 stall. I am thinking my first over the winter mod to be raising the stall speed. I have contacted Andre at Edge and he told me it would be no problem to send my converter back and he can reset it to a higher stall for a very reasonable price.
I am using a Comp Cam 503 and I do have 4:10 gears. I am thinking in the area of 3500-3800 stall.
I am hoping this will improve my 60' times.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
Regards,
Matt.

Thanks for the input.
My tranny was rebuilt not too long ago. It was rebuilt with some decent parts, Beast sunshell casing, .500 boost valve, new clutch packs, Superior servos, lighter accumulator spring, etc.
The tranny seems to be doing its job. I agree with what you are saying. I am starting to think about 3800 stall to get my bottom end up.
I should also be thinking about my tires slipping on the rims. I had them balanced, but after a weekend competition, they are out of balance pretty good. I am sure the tires are slipping on the rims a little.
