looks like just a solenoid inline with the conv feed.

The high performance and racing torque converters being produced today have to provide both a sufficient stall RPM and at the same time maintain a reasonably good coupling efficiency. In many<o:p></o:p> situations the need to also change the stall rpm becomes necessary. Up until now, that required some tedious work and time for sending the converter back to the manufacturer. That?s because all the mechanical components in the converter are set up to operate at one stall rpm and one coupling efficiency for each combination. In order to make any change, these components have to either be modified or replaced. Variable Stall Control uses a different approach to make the converter more adaptable and durable. This flexibility makes life easier for the racer and converter manufacturer. <o:p></o:p>
Variable Stall Control (VSC) is actually built into the valve body of the transmission. This innovation will completely change the approach to building racing torque converters in the future; primarily because it reduces the compromise in trying to achieve both a high stall rpm and a high coupling efficiency at the same time. It?s so unique and works so good, that it's being patented. <o:p></o:p>

Since its inception, the automatic transmission has relied upon the torque converter as the means to couple an engine's power as well as multiply its torque. In operation, the torque multiplication occurs during the ?stall phase?; when a vehicle is being launched. As a vehicle starts to move, the stall phase diminishes and the ?coupling phase? begins. The VSC is a new perfected method to optimize both a torque converter?s stall rpm and coupling efficiency. This translates into a better (60) foot and elapsed times, as well as optimum mile-per-hour, and over-all performance in terms of converter life.<o:p></o:p>
