Going to Top End dragways Saturday, had some problems with the tires rubbing on the coils in the rear. Got shorter springs and an alignment and we will see what happens.

With Diesel stuff we lock them up under power, I setup my truck to lock about half way through 2nd when WOT.. Diesel stuff has a tendency to push through the converter though... but slip is slip, it's power going into heat.

Just wondering if anyone offers built converters that can stand to be locked under high power??
No lock on the converter, it is custom made by Precison of New Hampton IA with no converter clutch. The trans I am running has no TCU so im not sure if you would even be able to lock the converter if it had one.
