The simple answer is that you can only lock them with cars that don't make a lot of power, and even then you'd have to watch for slip. Not a very simple answer.

I think when I do h/c I will switch to triple disk.

OK,
Thats what I was thinking. My converter is out and at PI getting reflashed and I was wondering if I should just replace it with a triple and sell my current converter. What is the advantage of being able to lock it? I have 3.70 gears and can hold fourth through the 1/4.

Your MPH might increase, and maybe, your ET as well. I think that depends on how effficient the converter is for a given combo. The trade-off in the past was the converter that would 60 it's balls off would be loose on the big end.

If I went say 11.99@112, maybe if I locked it up it would go 113mph. I know in the past I had a H/C 4th gen combo that went 11.7@112 and it went 114mph with me manually locking it up. I personally don't care right now because this converter is pretty efficient and I like that it 60'd a 1.66 spinning, tells me a low 1.6 is possible, maybe even a high 1.5.

My best 60' so far is 1.78 I'm hoping to get in the low 1.6 when I get it back together. Going from 3000 to 3600 rated stall speed.

Last minute deal, but I'm going up to GLD today (7.12.13) sounds like 2 C6 friends are going, one has cam, converter, exhaust and dr's, other is airbox, mufflers and maybe dr's?

Tim you running an EFI index or something like that?

I talked to Jim and am going to dig into my tune right now. Just going to make one change.

Yes john-running EFI index
Was running right where I wanted till last two runs pulling timing-cant figure out why-one today. Track prep great.
Gonna run first round against legendary Al Corda.
Impossible, even IF it was running right.
I need him to red light.

May run B2 tommorrow and or True Street-since I'm here, or pack it up (kid got sick yesterday from the heat).

regardless-couldnt pass up a close race location -more dial in for LSX.
Tim
Yup, the site was down for almost 2 days. looks like it got attacked. But all should be good as of now.

haha i am a phone guru. Are you trying to upload from an App?
