Post th350 FWD clutch cushion plate

hi rodders question has anyone intentionally left out the cushion plate in the forward clutch pack in a th350 ? I just had to try it,gee now doing so i can chirp the tires immediatly when the gear selector is put in the drive position with the brakes on.I ran it that way for about 5 months and then i later did a parcel tear down and reinstalledthe cushon plate.[note;i would not recommend this idea] mark p.s, < 50/50 warranty whichever occurs first 50 feet or 50 seconds>

I am new on working on trannys so my terminology is a little weak. But, I have been told that if you remove every other spring in the forward clutch thingie that it will make it shift really hard. Any one ever tried or heard of this?

No it'll make it even rougher when you first put it in drive. Forward clutch is not a shifting clutch so it doesn't effect shifts. Only the direct and intermediate clutches are shifting clutches on a th350. I personally don't remove springs. Removing springs may cause delayed down shifts and clutch burn up due to slow release.
