Default TH350C anyone?

So I was just doing some interweb browsing and seen the lockup option on the turbo 350's. Is this a pratical option for a drag car? My cars running a 400 right now and I really miss t/c lockup, but I really can't do w/o a brake. Anyone ever used one?

I tried it some years back. When it would lock up it would break the stator support. It might last one run then break on the second run. Broke several of them before giving up on it.

Idk about the 350's but somebody is making lockupp glides now I think. It seems like I heard A lot of classes have banned them for some reason though.

Thanks for the replies, I figured they must be weak or have a huge flaw or people would b running them. I haven't seen the pg with a tcc, I'm not sure I make enough power for a pg

Are you wanting to lock the converter at the track under WOT or just have it for around town?
