If you have dyno numbers, where do you put the stall speed relative to the torque peak? Thanks for your help

Frank Lupo from Dynamic converters told me 200 rpm over the max torque.

Well, it depends on if you want to go fast or be consistent.

To go fast, fax your dyno sheets to the converter company. French Grimes, though not a drag guy, give good advice on this, shift points and trap rpm. http://speedtalk.com/shows/032_french_grimes.html

To be consistent, you'll need something over the torque peak - depending on your shift and trap rpm, maybe way over. That's the trend.

stall speed

for a 3 speed, a touch above peak tq, for a 2 speed, 500-700 rpm over peak tq is a starting point.
