Slowing down Transbrake

(1/2) > >>

I run classes were your not allowed a delay box.
I already have an older slower brake in the car but its still not slow enough.
Long through buttons help some but not enough and dont fit well in the cockpit.
I was wondering if you have tried or heard of leaving out reverse springs?
I know there is an odd number of springs.
Do you think it would create a problem cocking the reverse piston in the bore?

Taller front tires may help

I thought of that too, but there's not a lot of options for a FED, especially if you want to maintain "the look". Also lower air pressure can make a difference, even a 5 psi reduction, assuming you're not pulling the wheels up out of the beams.

Not sure what springs you have now, but putting weaker springs in will slow it down, I have several customers using stock springs. Also you can orfice the feed hole in the case. Most are drilled at 5/16" you can go as small as 7/32".
