    Fuddle 3000 3.73 gears here. Great combo. Lose traction from a 2nd gear stab at 30MPH (no kickdown to 1st). Kickdown to 1st and fooooooorget it...

    It stands for Stall Torque Ratio

    a torque converter multiplies the torque produced at the flywheel.

    someone correct me if i'm wrong but if you have a STR of 2 then the torque being applied to the transmission is 2X greater than the torque produced at the flywheel.

    That is my understanding

    This is significant for acceleration at lower speeds or a dead stop

    The higher the STR , the more likely you are going to fry the tires . LS1 has about 350 ft lbs torque x 2 =700 (1.7 =595) . This might help .

    Or rather, 350x2x3.06x3.23=6,850 ft/lbs of torque going to the rear wheels (for me, A4).

    An engine is nothing without gears behind it

    Are you in city traffic driving 30 miles to work , I would say no . If you drive to work on the interstate , I would say yes . If you only go out week ends and nights ,Yes . I think my converter is the best thing I ever did ,it is a little soft off idle compared to stock ,besides this I can't tell the difference . The lock up works great .I have an Edge Converter. 1-888-350-edge , I am not a salesman just a happy customer.
