It's around 1800-2000 anything over 2000 and the tires start spinning and they won't stop until you let off the gas :willy:

Actually......you will NEVER reach the actual stall speed by holding the brake.

Torque converters are widely misunderstood and even harder to explain how they work and what they do. Most stock stalls are @ 1800 which is why the beginner converter (2800 stall with a 1.8 STR) is such a great gain. But if you really want to feel like you just got rear-ended at 150mph, get yourself a 4400 stall with a 3.0 STR (stall torque ratio). hehe, that sum-bish will show you what makes an automatic so great!

you prefer a vig over a yank thruster pro? for just starting out, sure go with the vig but if your really serious, like GTODEALER with his 15,000,000hp ride, then you want a yank, if not a Coan.

same problem I had with my 97 camaro, 98 camaro, 94 camaro, 95 vette, then I bought a cavalier to try and recoup the money I had lost racing.
