Car weighs 3290 im running 477BBC 725hp at 7000rpm 250shot of nos when the transbrake is released. Running PG 9in converter 4:56 gear 33.10.5 tires leaving at 3800rpm. Best 60ft 1.40 best 1/4 9.62. Would a 400 trans be a better choice? Monty says your the best so i thought id ask. THANKS Hutch,Gary

Gary, read this thread,

http://yellowbullet.com/v-web/bulletin/bb/viewtopic.php?t=2028

and you'll get the answer about the above question. But from what I've heard from Hutch and others, the question would be YES you'll be faster with the T400. I have a similar combo in my street car and I'm looking at changing to the T400 this winter as well. Hope this helps, John 8)

The car may be faster with a 3 speed but there is no guarantees in this game. If your planning to use just that much nitrous im quite sure a 3 speed would be a better choice. For that weight,ratio and amount of nitrous that you are using I think you may not see much better than a 1.25 to 1.30 @ 60 best. Not a real huge gain but its an improvement.

Hope this helps,Hutch

The 3 speed seemed to help durability with my nitrous motor. The engine didn't get loaded as hard on the launch and the gear shift with the T400 vs the glide. I burned fewer pistons with the T400.
