Any buddy here use or have seen there stuff? They have a electronic device called "stop it". It supposed to remove and electronic spikes after your trans brake releases.......

Computech says to use a diode between them.....

Although I've never used them myself, I have seen their alternator and water pump setups used before.  The guys that ran them said they were pretty good.............But that's all I know..........

A diode (installed backwards) across any coil will short out the reverse spike generated when the power is removed from the coil. This is common in industrial electrical systems. The Shogun device probably has the diode, an MOV (metal oxide varistor) and maybe a capacitor. All in all about $1 worth of electronic parts all for the low price of $50.

This diode should be overkill for this.  Install it with the white stripe on the + connection to the solenoid and the other lead to ground. There should be no current thru it when the solenoid is powered since this is reverse polarity for the diode. It only shorts out the reverse voltage spike when the solenoid de-energizes.

I've never bothered since I don't think this is a problem normally.

I put a shogun stop it on my new car last year, thinking if there was something to help a little I'd try it.  I clean my dragster a lot and it was out in the open and I was sure would get water sprayed towards it with the power washer. I called and asked if it was weather tight before buying it they said yes, 1/2 way through the year I started to fight a reaction time problem checked all wires changes transbrake sol. and no luck so I un hooked it and when I was taking it out I turned it upside down and it was full of water. I spoke with a few other racers that said it did nothing to help them or hurt them and agreed it was not worth the money for it.

 Hope this helps
