so your saying unless your a footbrake guy then you suck? Hell you should enter every protree and superpro electronics class and tree everyones ass then.

I'll venture a guess freelanders new lawndart has a tbrake...... and a delay box.




transbrakes are just a scam to get your money I guess.

Yep, it's all about the money.....delay box mfrs. , etc. do write checks to NHRA etc.

Relative to the delay box thing...they do make drivers more equal but, the guys that win the most with a box will win the most w/o the box.

I didn't say they don't work...... It's the driver that gets the reaction time and wins the race and in bracket racing having a faster car doesn't matter.
