If you're a technical novice seeking to learn more about high-performance parts, the folks at Hughes Performance have created an excellent multi-part series discussing the ins-and-outs of the torque converter, and its technology.






Part 5 -

In this weeks episode, we're discussing stall speed and what that means exactly! We hope this video will dispel many myths and confusion surrounding stall speed and torque converter function.

Part 4 -

In this episode of our ongoing Torque Converter 101 series, we go a bit more in-depth in our discussion of torque converter stator design, construction, function, and operating theory.

Part 3 - In this episode, we take a closer look at the various one way clutch options, design, construction, and function that are commonly used in torque converter stators, and how vortex flow within the converter affects one way clutch and stator operation.


Part 2 - In this episode, we’re discussing lock-up torque converters relative to original OEM design and function, as well as how the aftermarket has adapted and improved upon this OEM technology. We will be taking a deeper dive into drag racing-specific torque converters in a future episode, as the technology, function, and operation is a bit different as compared to OEM technology and function.

PART 1 - In this first episode, we go over the basics of a torque converter, how they are built, the parts inside a torque converter, and general overview of how a torque converter works.
