Why choose a bolt together torque converter?
One of the most commonly blamed component in a racing car for failure or inconsistency is probably the torque converter. We can't see inside it to diagnose or analyze without cutting it open, the design is very complex, and to reassemble a specialized welder and balancing machine is needed. Compare this to taking the bowls off a carburetor - 4 screws, or removing a valve cover - 4 to 6 nuts.
Therefore, the tendency to point fingers at a torque converter being the source of your race car's problems isn't illogical. But a bolt together torque converter can eliminate this guesswork.
- Smoked your transmission at the track? NO PROBLEM!
- Having trouble getting down a marginal track? NO PROBLEM!
A bolt together torque converter allows the user to open, inspect, service before next round, and in most cases adjust the stall speed of the unit. You can use the converter as a tuning tool, put in a hard hit stator on a good track or change to a soft hit stator on a marginal track.
Smart manufacturer utilizes CNC-machined component parts that allow for interchangeable pieces for service and adjustment in the field. And while the upfront cost of these units is higher than a traditional weld up torque converter, the reduced cost of annual service will be realized in a season or two.
