Drag Race Powerglide Buildup DVD
This is a short clip from the disassembly chapter of the five hour long dvd
on Building a Drag Race Powerglide Transmission. The clip shows how to
identify the difference between the two standard PG first gear ratio's. The
complete copyrighted dvd video has all the details and upgrades needed to
build a trans brake PG tranny for a 600 HP engine using a stock donor
Powerglide. There's an added bonus disk which shows how the rebuild a
planetary using aftermarket straight cut racing gears and building a
transbrake using a stock donor valve body. If your interested in this dvd

DRW / Buick V6 Alky v3.2 20L video test
My first in-car video. Preliminary tuneup with a new combination. First
video since the change to the Borg Warner Airwerks S510/91mm turbo. Still chipping away at the initial spooling
problem. Slowly, but surely making progress, though.

the staging lanes for a little bit.

Trans-Brake lesson 101 - Stephan Racing
Rob Stephan shows us how well a trans-brake can benefit a turbocharged car at building Boost on the startline. The Holden VL Calais
RB30 turbo hasn't been out for quite
some time but has recently undergone the switch to a Powerglide
In drag racing, a transbrake is a mechanism that selectively places the
transmission in first and reverse gears simultaneously, effectively holding
the race car stationary as if the foot brake was applied. The transbrake is
activated by the driver by applying electrical current to a solenoid at the
transmission. With the transbrake engaged (transmission locked), the engine
throttle can be increased to any position (opening) in preparation for
launch without the race driver worrying about the car creeping forward.
Milliseconds before the green light illuminates on the Tree the transbrake
is released (by the driver releasing an electrical switch or by a delay box
"timing out" originally triggered by the driver releasing an electrical
switch) and the car launches forward, its engine already in the higher
power band and the transmission already in low gear.
