Default Stall Speed Autostick Trans

Does anyone know the stall speed of the TC on the Autostick Trans?

I don't think it will allow this shift to happen...

If you had a torque converter it has to stall somewhere or you won't go anywhere. I think it is probably pretty low though. 2000 RPM?

The stall speed of a converter is the speed at which it will no longer allow the engine to rev while holding the brake pedal. You will see that the stall speed is approximately 2300~2360 RPMS for our cruisers. Pretty normal for most cars.

Punch, check above. Stall speed is what speed your trans will allow the engine to rev to while holding your foot on the brake, or brake-torquing as many people call it. It has a lot to do with torque, too...if you modify your car to produce more torque, your stall speed will be higher.

Careful, though, holding the brake and the gas heats up the torque converter ad your trans fluid pretty quickly!

Punch - a higher stall converter lets one run the rpm's up before launch. The idea being that an "over-cammed" car for instance (by design, so a it's misnomer here) could launch at an rpm appropriate to it's powerband..

It will also destroy the converter...

I know, I had mine replaced...
