    Wow boys...settle down now, no need to quibble over a few hundred rpms

    Lets all kiss and make up.

    Unfortunately the internet doesnt allow us to hear tone and context, so I can understand how someone could easily misconstrue this entire conversation. Lets remember that for the future guys.

    As for Jims products, AND his customer service, and his overall attitude, THEY ALL ROCK Ive known Jim for a while, and all I can say is that though you may have taken him seriously, I know for a fact hed NEVER say those words in complete sincerity. Jim NEVER has a bad word to say about anyone, and I have never HEARD an explitive out of his mouth....FYI, Jim, Chris and Al are all friends, and knew how to take that from him.

    I know return you to your regularly scheduled program.

    I don't appreciate that, and i wouldn't EVER say anything of the sort to you, Jim, or anyone else on the Bulletin Board.

    If you don't like the topic or the course of the discussion, don't read it. It didn't directly involve you. You chose to be a part of it, and you chose to be disrespectful.

    I am disappointed in you, who usually seems to have the calmest of personalities.

    Take this for what it is worth. I have in the past referred people to your business. I no longer will, based on your attitude towards those of us who were having a civil discussion, albeit contrary, it was civil until your statement.

    Good Day.

    It was a joke ! Jeez take pill , As for me being a part of this conversation , I am because i made a relative point according to his application . Maybe , everytime this Auto vs stick conversation arrive ,we could all start under the Heading of " OK , just for the sake of argument " . Bickering is for Kids So relax and have some fun !

    HMMM, it still doesn't say that it DOES NOT work for Autos, as you originally stated. It says with an auto they will be higher, so it does work. SH!T, what happens, you go over 40, and you can't read?? Last I looked you still had a 1:1 in your auto tranny. It still works for an estimate, which is what Chris and I have been screaming all along. It will just be higher, doesn't say how much higher, but higher. So if YOUR torque converter is slipping more than Chris', then it will be higher than the chart.

    I could still fight the ticket in CA and win. Most people are uninformed and therefore just pay the ticket.

    Estimate!!!!! That's all! Crimeny, all this casue you think you have to be right, and be 100% correct. Estimate!!!! That's all he needs to get him near where he should be. Estimate!!!!!!

    I'm done. Post what you want in response, but I'M DONE. TonkaDave, use a calculator to get an estimate. Then decide where you want to be.

    Ok, check this out from Drivetrain Direct:

    Drivetrain Direct.com
    It is in the paragraph under the scale. Last sentence.

    There is proof that it will work for Autos.

    No, cops can't, that is one that you can fight and win every time, because of the reason I posted!! It is part of the discussion. It shows a tolerance.
    Note that the scale above is based on 65 MPH and a 1 to 1 gear ratio with a manual transmission in 4th gear. With an automatic transmission your rpms will be higher due to slippage in the transmission and the torque converter.

    Where does it say it works for autos??????

    It says exactly what I have been arguing.

    With an automatic transmission your rpms will be higher due to slippage in the transmission and the torque converter.


    Don't come to Ca. They do give tickets for 5 over.

    My 3 speed at 70 with 35's and 4.10's turns 3000. The calculator says I turn 2700. My speedo is dead on. That's your proof.....

    We know the ratio is 1-1. Never argued that point. I also said my speedo was dead on, unless my gps is off. I said that it didn't work for autos because it wasn't accurate. Like I said before the difference can be more than one tire size. That's a lot. That's not ballpark. And yes, cops can give you a ticket for going 5 over, but that is part of our discussion.
