Hello

I have been think about redoing my transmission setup. Currently i run powerglide behind my screw blown hemi.

Would it be feasble to run a driect drive setup like the Fuel cars run? I only run 1/8 mile. Has anyone ever tried it?

I have a buddy that does this every now and then if he wants to index race but he say's it's hard on the trans and builds alot more heat. He built a trans cooler for the pits like some of the turbo guys use.

Sorry for not being being clear.

But i didn't mean using a powerglide for it, meant switching to a clucth and just using a reverser like the fuel cars and deleting the transmission completly.
