anyhoo it also has 2 buttons on the steering wheel.

the big red one is for the transbrake.  

what in the WORLD could that other button be for???

if it was a tap button.... where should it be wired to???

ps. the line-loc is on the shifter so that's not it.


Probably a "bump down" button for the K&R delay box. It is wired to an input on the box specifically for that.

I never used one. I never liked the idea of getting more than one chance to red-light. I guess I haven't been able to tell I was late soon enough to do anything about it.

IT's probably a tap up or tap down feature.  As far as where it's wired it depends on the box but if you have the manual it should discuss that.  It basically is a programable feature that adds or subtracts a programmed amount of time from or to your delay time.  If you think you were late on the tree and you have the other button setup as a tap down you can tickle the other button and take off some time.  How much depends on how you programmed it.

The Tap button may be for the new design delay box so if you think you cut a bad light you can cut a pre-programmed amount of time from your reaction time. A freind has his set to .010 so if he thinks he cut a fairly bad one he will hit it a time or two and has won rounds this way..

Could be a three step button!  That last digger I had had one on the steering wheel.

Ok Here's the link to that manual.

If it's wired to the "sub" terminal it's being used as a bump down.

I know how you feel Mel.

3 on steering (transbrake, burnout limiter, line lock)

I've got my logger set on manual as well ( missed setting it more runs than not.

since I moved the mastercylinder I've managed to hit the fuel pump switch several times and turn it off.

I see a major rewire job coming up... mind you it needs it, I've only ever seen the tacho once on a run... its way down low.. roll on the new shop..
