I have a pretty fresh C6 with a Broader T/B and if I stage with some rpm against the foot brake and go on the trans brake there is a very little delay before it locks up, What can cause this? Thanks, Pat.....

That's a good question Frank, I haven't actually checked this setup. But I had a similar issue with a jpt v/b and it was low at around 150psi. So I would have to check this deal. How do I adjust the line psi? Different spring or shim it?

The solenoid seems to snap hard and quick.

It's just a split second before it locks up, but if I were to stage last on a pro tree I could have a problem. If I come in with some rpm say 2500 or what ever and hit the button and let off the foot brake at the same time it may roll the beams before it locks up.

Why would you foot brake it to 2500 and them engage the brake? Isn't that backwards? I would think all the internals would be in a bind at 2500 stall ?

I don't really 2500 was just an example, but we race in the dirt with paddle tires with scoops on them and sometimes lined up in a hole, so there is no such thing as staging at say idle our at least not all the time. Regardless there is a little delay which I would rather not have if it can be corrected.
