How long can i rev the motor on this RPM limiter on the line(2-3 secs???)Before the light goes green.In other words when shoul i plant it(maybe as late as possible to save trans life).Or should i run a lower rpm pill for my launch on the 4500 converter.Any advise will be much appreciated.

Buy a starting line enhancer !! Best money you'll ever spend when being a fast car

What do you mean the fluid is no being pumped?
Wouldn't it have to be to hold in gear? :?:

As long as the converter/flexplate is spinning,the front pump is spinning.If the motor is on,the fluid is pumping.

Fluid is locked in the valve body and what is in the converter stays and nothing is traveling through the cooling lines. Sorry if I made it unclear.

As pictures shown about is what it is

It hooks up to your throttle pedal or up at the end of the cable on the carb. You let go of the transbrake button and it automatically brings it to full throttle when you have it set to come on is upto you. Depending on the type the pedal could go to the floor with force from it or it could just fall to the floor with no pressure.

Hammertime forgot to add that it's controlled through your delay box, most have an SLE function with adjustable time for the throttle to go WOT before brake release. I have run mine at .8 and at 1 sec. before release. You light the second bulb on the mat and the box does the rest - slicker'n snot! 8) JB

Hey Jim, when you going to bring that new car out? Your old car just kept on winning after you sold it. All that time I thought it was you that was so good. Hummm maybe it was the car.
Not Really, it was good to see you out helping the guys this weekend.
take care,
