What's the Stall converter for AU II automatic transmission


Just wondering what the stall converter level is on an AU II XR8 automatic transmission.

Reason is, I read how you get the fastest take off in the Wheels magazine and they say to load up the revs to the stall converter level and then release your brakes while still pushing the accelerator down.

Stall Converter = torque converter, they just have different stall speeds, iirc its about 1200rpm on a Falcon but this could be different between 6/V8 and/or XR/Forte etc.

Basically, just bury your left foot on the brake while in D and use right foot to raise revs, when the thing won't rev any higher, let go of the brake and hang on for the ride!

Note you don't want to be doing this all of the time as it heats the trans up.

Stall Speed changes from 2000 to 2400rpm (depending on conditions) for all V8's from EB-AUIII.
