Default Is it just me?....

Or is it fun to occasionally get on the Transbrake for no reason. Got off work earlier and thought "other than for reverse I've only got on the brake once since the conversion"....fine time for another "test". Yes, I'm acting like a kid with a new toy....but I don't care. Didn't think this would fit anywhere but here lol.

Kind of anticlimactic. Thought I'd see a launch in there. Hopefully you have some sort of oil gauge connected?

No need for crazy expensive clutches that will hold. And aside from the Transbrake it's the coolest feeling to shift, and there's ZERO respool. Just this past weekend ET wise, the car was as fast at 11psi....as it was with 20-21 psi with the six speed. Just in general the car is faster.

Huh...everything im reading on it says they lock it in first and reverse at the same time. Push buttion and go. So its...not really shifting? Or do you have to do that for every gear? Additionally im reading that if it ever does crap out you best have a fat wallet. But its apparently better than line locking for dragging.

I was just about to say its like just installing a two step... pop pop BANG BANG. Now if he had a two step linked up to his transbrake he would be doing something. Leave off the brake on 15 lbs and let that car eat.

Transbrake locks low and reverse. And it's only for the launch, other than that you don't touch it, unless you want a destroyed transmission and possible totalled car. And yes, you still have to shift the car.
