I agree, I'm going back to the track next week but the first time testing it I dropped 2/10th's on my 60ft in horrible weather with issues with my car. That's going from a 2200 rpm converter to a 3500rpm street converter.

I have no doubts in normal 70degree weather the car will pull 3/10th's better on the 60ft alone with the improved converter. That's good for over 1/2 a second in the 1/4.
