Trimatics

What's the general consensus on trimatics? Are they any good? What's the best way to set them up to sit behind a warm 308.

I'm looking at buying an HQ monaro that's got one in it. I was after a T400, but looks as monaro's with this tranny as original aren't that common (happy to be corrected on this).

Personally i like the trimatic. They sap little power and can be beefed up to be quite strong. The is a place in the east somewhere that specialises in doing race trimatics. I have forgot their name, someone else might be able to give the name. Rat

trimatics can easily be built to handle over 300hp and as rat says they are good as they 'sap' little power and weigh much less, in the states the trimatic was reffered to as the T175.
a T400 is quite a heavy duty box, thus it uses up heaps of power, and if your going over 300hp+ then you should still consider the T350 first for anywhere up to 6-700hp.

I have used tri's for years behind performance motors,if you put it in a heavy car 3rd gear really needs addressing-can flair badly.
A bloke I know ran real low 10's(a high 9 once) with a tri in a torana at Ravenswood.
They don't use anywhere the horsepower a 350/400 does.
I'm running one in a healthy stroked 308 tunna towing car trailers etc.
They need BIG OIL COOLERS also
