    tranny brake delay safety switch

    few years ago i saw a device that gets wired to the tranny brake button and when you release the button it will not allow the button to trigger the tranny brake for 60 seconds(safety device so you cant hit it by mistake a second time) does anyone know where i can get one. hope they are still available thanks chevy art

    tranny brake safety switch

    no, definitely not. its some sort of electric device that makes you wait for 60 seconds until you can use the tranny brake again, or you caN OVERIDE IT MANUALLY IF YOU WANT TO USE IT SOONER. JUST A DEVICE SO YOU CANT HIT THE TRANY BRAKE BUTTON A SECOND TIME WHILE YTHE CAR IS IN MOTION. THANKS ART

    Sounds like he's a no box guy. That's why he's looking for this.

    If that's the case, you have to be careful. The rules at a lot of tracks say the wire from the button to the brake has to be one piece with no splices.
