TCI reverse manual tbrake vb issue Empty TCI reverse manual tbrake vb issue

Post  HorsinAround November 12th 2021, 4:24 pm

I built a full roller C6 beefed up to handle alot more power. I then installed a used but cleaned TCI reverse manual vb with a brake. When I went to the track and tested it last week, it would apply the brake at idle, but would jump 2-4 ft if I brought the rpm up to where I want to launch. Does anyone have an idea what the cause could be?

My primary trans has a Broader Performance tbrake vb and I haven't had any issues with it.

Thanks
Alan

Those TCI valvebodies are just trouble . Frank has a fix for them which may help your issue?

That is the plan. This trans is coming back out and the other one is going back in. Then the tci vb will become batting practice..

I know its an old post but when using a TCI VB you must plug the servo drain for it to work properly. Broader VB's this is not required. Not promoting TCI here.
I had a TCI build that I replaced the VB with a Broader piece but didnt open the servo drain. It shifted super hard and blew the servo o-ring. Once the drain was opened all went well.

TCI=Total Crap Inside
