Field Test Dakar Torque Converter
A torque converter transfers engine power to the transmission. When unlocked, the torque converter constantly slips, resulting in friction and heat. The Beast 2019 used Swepco ATF, which burned and varnished daily, causing issues.
|Lubrication Point||Torque converter|
|Product Used||Eurol Specialty Racing ATF|
|Product Usage||Jefferies buggy, Coronel Beast 2020|
In the Beast 2020, the torque converter was filled with Eurol Specialty Racing ATF, which can handle much higher temperatures and dissolves oxidation products, thereby preventing varnishing. As a result, the torque converter performs as designed throughout the entire Dakar Rally.
Tim Coronel, owner and driver, Coronel Dakar Team: "Absolutely no issues with the torque converter. The ATF didn't even change color after an entire Dakar Rally, without an oil change."
