K&R delay box

Post  Moodyblues on January 27th 2017, 12:55 pm

Who uses the K&R plus delay box? How do you like its features?

I just installed in my car to shift on time instead of RPM. My car will run low 5's but there is no class for that around here (Southern TN). I dont care to much for bracket racing and not against it , I bracket raced for over 20 years. I plan on running the 5.70 heads up index and if I can get it slowed down maybe some 6.0 index.

Looking foward to the bash in June!

You may want to look into the restrictor plate deal also. They work awesome to easily dial a car down to a certain index. You can leave your shift point the same, car still leaves hard, you can slow a fast car way down if you need to.

I run a K&R ProCube...Love it.  Much simpler, quicker and easier to read and change dials (mine OR opponent's) than my old Dedenbear.  Simple is good, especially when you're rolling thru the waterbox.

A good friend (best footbrake racer I know) runs the plate system.  Uses it when he goes index racing...and loves it.  He's murder on the tree and his car ( 421" Windsor/Fox) stacks numbers, with or without the plates.

I'm a big fan of the K&R box. Kevin is a super nice guy and a racer. His customer service is second to none.

K&R here as well. Great piece of equipment. Mine has the Z-Force option. Like the idea, but haven't tried it enough to get any good at it.

Russ, FYI, if you want to index race they have a few down here. I-22 has started I 5.50 class that they ran several times last year.

That Z force is an interesting idea. How do you like it?

Thanks David. It's 176 miles one way from the house. Might consider sometime

Z Force box....just like David Cole, I like the idea but haven't tried it that much. I was using the same button that I use for normal release. Seemed to work ok but not that concesnt
Talked to Kevin and he said to mount it so you can pull it like a trigger.....will try it this way some time this year.

Ive got mine hooked up to shift on time(timer2). Can I run a trigger to a msd rpm module to shift on rpm too? I am not 100% sure what the trigger is used for.

If you don't have the Z Force box don't worry about any kind of trigger. Just use your button as always. You should call Kevin with any questions
Z Force gives you the option of setting the trans brake by pushing the button to set the trans brake and then pushing it again to release the trans brake or the normal way of setting and releasing.
Next time I try the Z Force I'm going to try something different, I going to set the trans brake with one button and release with the other hand and another button.
Hey I'm old and need all the help I can get.........

I made a trade with a local guy for the restrictor plate EZ plate system.

I've played with it a little bit. I'm thinking 1.7-1.8 seconds out. Maybe start at 1.5 or 1.6 to start with. I believe you will like that restrictor plate set-up.

Thanks. Getting headers finished up so I can go out and make some passes.

That's all we run in all of our cars is the K&R box. Most of us have the Zforce and push the trans brake instead of let go. Plus we all shift on time.
