I have never had the need to own one however, I have seen 4 or 5 vehicles go down the track with 'em and shifting was a worry free thing.

Hoping to try mine out in a few hours. I'm at Joliet for the NMRA/NMCA race. Very Happy

Went testing last weekend, but I had an electrical issue and it wasn't working. I got that fixed.

Test results are in,.........and all I can say is,.....my back had a slight kink in it before I let go of the button. It's gone now!! Laughing

I like it a lot better than the other one I had.

I got my best 60' time this weekend!!

Thanks for a good product Frank. cheers

Well this year we've be running my 1st prototype VB #1 built in 1991 that's been sitting in my trophy case for years, as I miss counted VB's that needed to be built and had to send out my favourate one from my own car !!!to fill the orders!!! People don't seem to understand the amount of work it takes to build these . To build one of one at a time it takes 44 -48 hours but when I build them I build them in 10 lots and with repetitive machining the time comes down to about 20 hours each and then you add 4 to 8 hours on testing and fineseing to make sure that they work as they should , Slack time from farming 16 hr days to building transbrake vb's and tranies working 18-20 hour day's

look ive ran a c6 since 1976 i think, I've tried them all trans-go ect, they all work,BUT ARE INCONSISTANT . FRANKS work the same over and over,AND BECAUSE OF THIS theres less wear,and trans last longer.



I maybe the only guy whos burned up 12 c6's in 9 passes, Iknow franks work's YES 3 in the burn out box. WITH BILL BORSOM BUILDING THE TRANS,AND FRANKS VALVE BODY I have no problems

Frank hand builds his and test them and has learned all the little tricks to make what they are most of the other are mass production built and the care is not give to them that the reason one works and one might not that the reason you have a waiting line for Franks or that is what I think the reason is.

I'll be finding out soon enough about TCI's trans and brake and if it doesn't work properly I will be going with one of Franks VB's this winter.

Also IIRC Frank figured out how to fix TCI's brake before TCI figured it out... Very Happy
Everyone wants them so you better raise the price on those VB's. You'll have that 712 paid for in no time. Razz
