What is a lock up converter,and how does it work.
Why can't you have a 3000rpm that you could lower the rpms for the street?
I've heard of electric lock up converters how do they work.

Thanks just trying to learn more.

instead of torque loss through the converter it locks front and rear halves to give you a 1:1 ratio of spin instead of the loss of a normal converter
