I have a 10" 3500 stall on my C6 and was wondering when standing on the brake and slowly creeping up the rpm at what rpm should the car start to break loose? Should it go all the way to 3500 or only when you flash it?

That rating is the flash. It will vary some depending on how the converter is configured but you should get a bit over 2000 on the foot brake before the rear tires overrun the brakes. Also, if you load it up on the foot brake it probably won't flash to its max. They need a hard hit to flash on up. With a 3500 you need to foot brake it to maybe 1500 and then nail it hard.

Thanks, I'm getting around 2500 with the foot brake so I guess the converters working well. Its brand new but I haven't had a chance to get to the track yet and the car has slicks on it so its not on the road at this time.
