Only time I've scraped bottom was after a little wheel stand.
Cracked the TH350 bell houseing so I've changed to a Powerglide with a tranny break....think I'll see the 9's ?
Hmm. Well the trans brake will give faster launches, but that long first gear might be slower than the 350. So you'll just have to test it out.
