Russ wanted his cruiser to have a little more 'git-up' off the line, so we installed a higher stall torque converter (2500 RPM), deeper rear axle gears (3.73:1), a limited slip Auburn differential and 31 spline axles (so he can boil both baloneys), and a double secret distributor recurve to get the engine revving faster.
