Does anyone have any info on the Bat Brake ? Who makes it and where to buy ? I don't like the Stage Right type cause of the 1st to 2nd gear activation, but I thought the Bat Brake was more "typical" with a solenoid ? Any info would be appreciated !!
Thanks,
 
Thanks

Thanks to everyone for the info ! Any comments concerning either one (Bat Brake or Stage Right) would be appreciated ! What performance gains have you experienced and or parts breakage ?
Thanks again
 
One thing i can say from expieience is , Which ever transbrake you purchase,Both worked equally well for me, You will be putting in some sort of upgraded forward drum, If $ is an issue, Art Carr make a heat treated drum that runs around 150 or so, If you want to know how well they work get in touch with LV GN, He has been running 10s of a stage right with an art carr drum without breakage for a few years now.

Thanks for the info KLHAMMETT What ET and or MPH gain did you see with a brake ?
 
Hard to say,as i installed these with a new engine turbo combo at the same time. You will notice with a transbrake that you can run a tighter convertor on the street which i found nicer to drive.NY convertor would stall about 3000 on foot brake but 4000 on t-brake.You will need good suspension and tires to take full advantage though.
