We are going to try our luck with a soft hit (CCX stator) in the new converter to see if it will not smack the tire so hard on the starting line and maybe get rid of that initial spin.

Yes it did. I guess the combination of the 13 gear and a transmission mod that I wasn't ready for. It was like it had a Jake Brake when I lifted! Never touched the brake.

Code:

  My run                     His run
   DI                          DI
 5.48                         5.61
 .501     Reaction            .522
 1.200  60 Ft                1.221
 3.507   330ft               3.606
 5.129  594ft                5.251
 5.529  1/8 ET               5.633
 112.27 1/8 MPH              117.80

                                  WIN

             .0058

Lemmie know how this works out as I've been thinking the same thing.  I know a lot of dragster guys run "soft hit" converters also.

Are you pulling any timing out at the hit?

No
Just run it static at 27 degrees.

You do run a digital 7 box though, right?  And if so, why not?

I have talked to a hand full of fast door car guys who have changed over to soft hit.
From the drivers seat:
Instead of feeling like getting hit with a boat paddle in the back it feels like a firm shove. Then after about 3 feet hang on.
More MPH with less rpm due to better coupling down track.

Because it's already a turd getting up to flash stall.

Maybe when we get the flash right we can try it.
