Heres how to check your stall...
Put your foot on the brake, really hard...
Put the car in gear, and run the rpm up,
the tires will start to spin, or the engine
will die at the converters stall speed...

That blowed up real good...

That is not how you know stall speed. Stall speed is dependant on alot of things. It will be different behind a different motor, and the stall speed is actually the speed the converter will allow the motor to rev to before it engauges. The torque of the motor and the weight of the car are the determining factors. When I went from a 350 to a 400 sbc I gained about 300 rpm on my 10 inch street fighter.

You find the stall speed with a foot brake. A little more accurate way is to start at a slow roll and punch it. Watch the tach and it should bounce to a set rpm and hang there for just a second. If the car has any power however, it will probably spin and you will not know the stall speed. At the track on slicks you could find the stall speed acuurately.
