    never heard of them.....is it an ebay convertor? Do you track the car? I'd be curious to see what gains you see from it.

    I'd be more interested in what it does to your 60' time and trap speeds.

    do you take your car to the track? Do you have a baseline to compare time slips with? I'd be really curious to see how this stall works out for you. I bought a fuddle when they first came out and have been fairly happy with mine. That being said I've always been curious just what a yank or vigilante would do over this fuddle in the time slip department.

    I'm with ya Orion. Never heard of Revmax. Curious which manufacture is behind that one.
    I'm also happy with my Fuddle. Customer service left a bit to be desired but the converter works nicely.

    I too would like to see some comparable track times with this Revmax. Any idea on STR?? Curious how efficient it will be.

    I looked into getting a revmax converter. A little info on them
    They have been around making converters for a few years. Just started advertising "race" converters. The tech support is very knowledgeable and friendly. For my application I choose a Yank but if I was just a street driver with little or no track times I would have given them a shot.


    I hope the best for you!

    So far the converter works good. It seems pretty tight although, Im no expert. You can feel the trans go into gear but once you start moving [normal street driving] you can only hear it shift and see the tach drop slightly, one or two hundred rpm mabey. It pulls the car well, [for street driving] at about fifteen to eighteen hundred. With no brake it frys the tires from a dead stop, shifts to second, and holds at thirty five hundred as it rolls out.
    I wont make it to the track this year even though the converter seems to work well. During the engine swap I pinched the wire harness on the passenger side that is now causing me some issues with voltage. The car will probably sit until a cam kit and intake manifold arrives to further utilize the thirty six hundred RevMax converter.


    By the way, mines is the cheepest one they sell.

    ......heard about them too. I have a friend with an LT1 with a 4000 stall. He loves it and can vouch for it's ruggedness.
