Since I've got to replace my t-brake solenoid anyway, and install some protection in that circuit, I was also looking at some other things, and am curious if they are any good. What I'm looking at now is the Shogun Stop-it for the trans brake. Has anybody here used one of those? If so, was it worth it? If it did work, how much of a difference did it make for you?

Thanks in advance guys!

Mark

I have one of their "Lifetime Warrantee" water pumps. Didn't last more than a few races. The new replacement wouldn't even pump water.

$49.95 for 0.99 worth of electronic components. Sounds like a deal. Probably a diode, a capacitor and maybe an MOV. Won't do anything to help RT consistency IMO. Letting off the button consistently will do the most for your, mine and everybody elses consistency problems.

A bunch of marketing hype to take $$ from the non-technical racers who are more than willing to throw mega-bucks at their cars in the hopes of making them the next winner. If there was anything to it, they'd have some test data to PROVE the theory. Would be very easy to time the release of the TB solenoid and show how inconsistent is w/o their wonder-module, then time it with their product.

Some swear by the stop-it some swear at it ! I myself swear at it ! I had one on a car a few years ago and could not get the lights to be consistent. Pulled it off and it was full of water ( I wish my car weekly) and they are suppose to be weather tight and can not get water in them. I threw it in the trash and everything worked well after it. My current car, when I purchased it, it had one on it they guy said he never runs without one and has had no issues.
