For reverse put a bottom on or near the shifter and by-pass your delay box.
For the fastest button use one with a controlled throw.

Run a wire to one side of a btton to the wire going to transbrake terminal on the delay box, the other side of the button to 12v .. its direct this way to the solenoid. I suggest it on a push button but you can use it on a toggle .. but if you do leave that toggle on for a long time .. its going to burn up the wiring and solenoid on trans.

I drilled a hole in my over head box and wired a switch to the brake.
After the burnout, flip the switch and go, no having to hold a button.
My delay box uses a ground signal, so there is no interference with the safety circuit.

That's a nice box, and even though it's been out a while, I'm sure it'll have everything you need!!
