you should be careful about posts that involve street racing.If perhaps your question was more like,I have a powerful sbc in a mini truck that I drive daily,what would be reliable under adverse conditions,IE: high way driving and regular track days at the local track?
Then we could ask about the type of racing and how competitive are you in your class? How much HP does your engine have?How mant gears do you need and do you need an over drive?

That would be correct.
Please read the guidlines.
We do not condone street racing.Performance is cool. Racing belongs at the strip. L

I much prefer a stickshift; say a TK0. If you're going automatic, I like the 200-4r for most applications under 500ft lbs. More than that, go 4L60e, More than say 700ft lbs, 4L80e or TH400 with a Gear Vendors

But we dont know what youre up to, perhaps a Road Ranger 10 speed?

I agree with the other guys about street or road racing. I've seen the results of these types of racing. Death, paralyzation, loss of limbs etc. Be safe, only race at the strips.

It would take some beefing up for a 4L60E/700R4 to handle 500 ft/lb or more.They do good to handle the 380 or so they are rated for stock.Anything over 400 ft/lb would be better suited to the 4L80E or 400.The 4L60E takes alotta work to hold up to that kinda power.
