question about the MKVIII TC

I know it helps out in the quarter, but the only racing I do is at traffic lights. Does this TC help much for around town acceleration?

Helps just as much if not a little more. It really helps in traffic because it lets the engine spin up sooner and multiplys the torque a bit differently.

the mark8 TC will help in around town ONLY. when on the highway, it will be stalled or locked, just like the stock TC.

go out to your car, put the trans in 2nd, and mat the gas. notice that the tach shoots up to about 2 grand, then slows, and that is when the car accelerates? that is the TC stalling. the mark 8 unit won't stall until 2400 or 2500.
