What's the proper way to do a burnout without hurting the converter sprag?

Alvin,
You just need to roll on the throttle and when the tires start to hook shut off.  Don't be a throttle jockey! Jumping on and off the throttle on the burn out or on the run hits the drive train very hard, this includes the transmission, torque converter and differential.

Mike ,

Do you have any idea where a guy could find an adapter plate or bell to put a SBC in front of a large bell ,pan fill C-4? This is not for drag racing but for an early Bronco so it need not be SFI certed .

Thanks ,

Spence Sharp

Spence,

We do have a small block Chevy to C-4 Bellhousing.  We would need to build you a C-4 to Chevy torque converter also.
