Funny I believe my truck is an automatic and finished fifth in points and finished in the top three several times so keep your automatic its about getting your power to the ground and gearing so you guys can knock on automatic all you want I do believe another automatic in the class putting his truck out front several times.

Well i dont mean to be an ass but you bring a motor that small up to our class we will be wait out in front of you. We got a truck in our class thats 850 n he is very competitive. You need 850 or better to compete in our class.

i used to run a jegs xhd converter that stalled around 4200. i was 22 to 1 at the time. i bought tthomps old ptc converter thaf was set up for his motor at the time, and went to 25 to 1 and turned nearly tbe same rpm. it stalls at 2900 with my application. but it goes farther down the track. and contrary to some beliefs, it breaks parts now. lol
