Meet The Road Ripper

Got a load? Take a number: 1000, 2000 or 3000. Each packs a bigger bang than factory stock. Each packs heavy-duty parts for max durability. And each will destroy the road - whether driven for speed or towing tons. The very durable Road Ripper™ line of transmissions. Things are bound to get ugly.

The Road Ripper 1000

It packs more muscle than factory stock and knows how to flex it. But be warned: it doesn't tread lightly. On the open road, it hauls @$$. On power jobs, it kicks @$$. This is big-boy territory now. The line has been drawn. The very durable Road Ripper™ 1000.

Built for:

  • Towing up to an extra 4,000 lbs. (two tons)
  • Engines with added horsepower of up to 100
  • Hot rods or muscle cars with street tires
  • Drivers wanting more than shift kits
  • Drivers wanting better transmissions

Designed with:

  • New parts for super durability
  • High pressure for tight-grip, no-slug shifts
  • High-flow lube circuit that beats heavy-duty heat
  • Density increase in clutch pack for no slippage
  • Ability to boost the charge circuit to handle higher torque loads
  • High-throttle power retainment

Road Ripper 1000: What's it all about?

This is the first step to improving your factory-stock transmission. We start by increasing pressure in the transmission for firmer applications of clutches and bands, which provides for a more positive shift. Then we address the pressure after the application of clutches and bands so there is less chance of slipping the clutches. After improving the pressure, we add more clutch plates to the clutch packs. This is a great unit when you're looking for more than what the factory offers.

Some of the Specifics:

  • New parts for super durability
  • High pressure for tight-grip, no-slug shifts
  • High-flow lube circuit that beats heavy-duty heat
  • Density increase in clutch pack for no slippage
  • Ability to boost the charge circuit to handle higher torque loads
  • High-throttle power retainment

  • Engines with added horsepower of 100 to 225
  • Diesel engines that have been chipped for more power
  • Street racers

Designed with:

  • Heavy-duty parts for super durability
  • Resized servo and levers for seamless grab
  • Higher pressure for tight-grip, no-slug shifts
  • High-flow lube circuit that beats heavy-duty heat
  • Bands and clutches that handle high energy
  • Super density in clutch pack for no slippage
  • Ability to boost the charge circuit to handle higher torque loads

Road Ripper 2000: What's it all about?

This beefed-up transmission really meets the mark of hard-working vehicles that need way more than what the factory offers. We start by really increasing the pressure in the transmission. This gives firmer application for all of the high-energy clutches and bands we install, like red, blue or even Raybestos™ Z-Pak™ clutches and Pro Series™ bands (depending on what the vehicle will be used for). Then we address the servos and accumulators to match up with the shifts you like. Adding to durability, we replace all rollers and sprags with the maximum-level available element. We address the converter to handle the higher load and improve its durability and efficiency. This is a very tough, hard-working unit.

Some of the Specifics:

  • Complete valve body and separator plate modifications for durability and improvement of shifts.
  • Increase base line pressure which gives you better linear line pressure during shifts.
  • Improve throttle pressure circuit for a faster and more responsive line pressure boost.
  • Resized servo and levers for maximum holding of any bands.
  • Use of high-energy clutches and Pro Series™ bands.
  • Increase of clutch packs by as much as 30 percent for greater holding power.
  • Improves the lube circuit which feeds all of the bushings, washers and geartrain in the transmission to keep them lubricated.
  • All sprags and rollers are replaced with the best available for increased capacity.
  • Only the highest-flow pumps available are used.
  • We furnace-braze converters and add new bearings throughout for durability.

The Road Ripper 3000

This is the motherload of all Road Rippers™! Once this performance transmission opens a can of whup@$$, all hell breaks loose. It handles monster loads and leaves roads begging for mercy. Only the hardcore need apply. Serious racers can kick its @$$ 24/7. It'll only ask for more. Road Ripper™ 3000-very durable, very hard working and very kick @$$.

Built for:

  • Frequent towing of 10,000 lbs. or more on a fifth wheel (trailer)
  • Engines with added horsepower of 250 or more
  • Drag cars running a quarter mile in 10-12 seconds

Designed with:

  • Hardcore, heavy-duty tempered parts
  • Fortified case rigidity for strength
  • Larger servos and levers for maximum seamless grab
  • Highest possible pressure for tight-grip, no-slug shifts
  • High-flow lube circuit, sump and pump beats heavy-duty heat
  • Ability to boost the charge circuit to handle higher torque loads
  • Peak density in clutch pack for no slippage
  • Heavy-duty bands and clutches that handle high energy
  • (Road Ripper™ 3000 requires an external cooler which we can supply for an additional cost.)

Road Ripper 3000: What's it all about?

Road Ripper 3000 is for the serious full-time racer and for the reprogrammed, stump-pulling, overloaded vehicle. This is a beefed-up transmission that can handle the extra horsepower and torque with a geartrain built to the highest capacity available. Hardened shafts, where available, are used to take on those extreme-working vehicles that like to break things. In this unit, we increase the pressures more in the transmission. We use high-energy clutches and bands like red, blue or even Raybestos Z-Pak™ clutches and Pro Series™ bands. We address servos and accumulators in this unit to match up with the shifts you like. We replace all rollers and sprags with the maximum element available and increase the sump capacity for additional cooling. Converters are custom built to handle all of your applications. (Converters with a higher stall rate are available at an additional cost.) This is a very tough, very hard-working unit.

Some of the Specifics:

  • Use of the highest-flow pumps that are available.
  • Complete valve body separator plate modifications for durability and improving shifts.
  • Installation of a heavy-duty planetary gear.
  • Increase in the base line pressure which also provides a better linear line pressure increase for higher shift quality.
  • Hardened shafts where available.
  • Improvement of the throttle pressure circuit for a faster and more responsive line pressure boost.
  • Increased case rigidity to help prevent the case from cracking.
  • Resized servo and levers for maximum holding of any bands.
  • Increased sump capacity for additional cooling.
  • Use of high-energy clutches and professional series bands in the transmission.
  • An increase of the clutch packs by as much as 38 percent for more holding power.
  • Custom-built converters to handle specific applications.
  • Improves the lube circuit which feeds all the bushings, washers and geartrain in the transmission to keep them lubricated.
  • Improves the torque converter charge circuit which will ensure that the converter stays fully charged with fluid so you don't lose power during heavy demands or a wide-open throttle.
  • All sprags and rollers are replaced with the maximum element available for increased capacity.
