    Got my new custom built Turbo 350 transmission installed that has a transbrake . I'm still trying to find the best rpm to launch with the 2 step but launching at 3500 rpm feels awesome

    It feels like you were rear ended by a semi truck at 60mph when you let go of the button !!! . Still not used to having to activate the transbrake to get the Camaro to go into reverse though !!!

    Yep, they leave hard. Wait till you let that button go on a well prepped track! We need a pic of that red Camaro carrying the wheels past the 60! BTW, what diff are you running? lol

    Transbrakes are great until....you bust an axle, break the rear end, bust the yoke, break the driveshaft, you get the idea LOL.

    Wire the trans brake to the reverse light switch. It makes everything simpler. Only bad thing is that everyone will know you are on the brake when your backup lights are on.

    I have a tranny brake with the reverse manual valve body. The tranny guy told me the torque convertor is 3800 so that's what to bring it to. Yee Haa!

    Biondo racing transbrake button installed , this is their adjustable Harrington switch . Have it adjusted to the quickest release but it also can be adjusted to slow you down up to .03 Hundredths like a delay box
