One important upgrade, It appears that it has the black rubber balls. They need to be replaced with the white nylon type balls. This is most important !!!!

PM me a address and I will send them to you.

It will still work better than any thing bought elsewhere but bear in mind, But you need to know that there is a turbo version that has the low band clamped on all the way through low gear.

Two prototypes were tested in turbo cars with data loggers at the end of this season to see if there was any ill effects such as band overlap, and there was none.

Also, with the low band clamped on, the low sprag is protected against any damage if you encounter tire shake.

But the best part, Trans brake setup is instant. just breath on the switch and I repeat, "It Is Instant." This is great for spooling and staging at the same time.

Got your PM and the shuttle balls are going out next week. Here are some pictures of the new "B Type" valve body.

Steve from a quick look its looking like you finally started feeding the high gear thru the reverse passage.Now the 2 things I had over on you with an iron casting(no band on in lo and use of the stock 3rd gear passage)cannot be used for a comparison of the 2 anymore.There is nothing left for me to complain about.Youve beat me but the sequel will be a billet version as well.Remeber,its guys like you that inspire guys like me.Thanks.Putting my personal feelings aside,I give you alot of respect in the design department,you are a true legend in the field.

Chris, I havn't seen those 200r4 parts I inquired about last week. Let me know if you shipped them I am scared that UPS lost them.

S. Griner, Thats an Awsome looking valve body. We have installed a few for customers and there top notch all the way. Also, kudos for the great customer service here. I always think it's neat to see your old products surface after 20 years still in one piece.
