We have teamed up with Hughes to offer our customers their exceedingly strong & durable transmissions component. We will work together with you and Hughes to put together the most appropriate transmission for your application or new ACE Racing Engine!
The Street & Strip
The street/strip transmission contains racing components which increase strength, reliability, and torque capacity. All street/strip transmissions also feature their manual/automatic valve body which allows you to select precise manual shifting or full automatic.
The Superglide Case
This is the state-of-the-art transmission assembly. Forged from aluminum this much improved case assembly is far superior to the original equipment casting and is pre-SFI approved eliminating the need for any external shields. The Superglide is equipped with a band adjustment nut for quick low band changes at the racetrack, quick disconnect cooler lines, and an inner case liner for extra strength and durability. The Superglide case should be used on any Powerglide transmission where the engine is exceeding 750HP. The case assemblies can be ordered for any car regardless of manufacture and will greatly enhance the lifetime of your racecar’s transmission.
The Hughes Superglide Competition Transmission delivers unsurpassed strength and reliability under the most severe conditions. Highly recommended for Drag Racing!
Installation — All linkage, vacuum lines and kickdown mechanisms must be connected and properly adjusted for any automatic transmission to operate correctly. We recommend the use of a Hughes Performance trans. cooler and deep aluminum oil pan, which has 2 to 4 quarts of extra fluid capacity, with any severe-duty, street/strip transmission.
By using the finest parts available and a wide variety of combinations, Hughes can build a converter for your high performance application. These units are tested and proven by their race team, “Hughes Motorsports”, and we at “ACE Racing Engines” have their 3000hp+ rated transmission with GearVendors pro mod overdrive unit, billet bolt together Pro SSX converter and dual series dump valve kit on our 3000hp ’66 Nova drag car!
Hughes Torque Converters and Gear Vendors Overdrive are also available.
