new era in exhaust braking. Introducing
an exhaust brake that's like nothing you've ever seen. SpeedBrake
cuts downhill speeds by nearly 80% without using the brake
pedal. Saves your wheel brakes, keeping them cool and ready
for emergencies. Dramatically reduces brake wear. And saves
thousands in brake maintenance!
SpeedBrake is a revolutionary, patented all-electronic
braking system with downhill speed regulating capability, user-adjustable
setpoint speeds (25-75 mph) & built-in safety. It takes
exhaust braking to a whole new level by combining intelligent
manipulation of the variable geometry turbo's turbine vanes
with specific control of gear selection and torque converter
clutch application when engine braking is desired. SpeedBrake
has various operating modes and settings to optimize braking
function for individual preferences and conditions.
requires use of Banks Power iQ
testing, dramatically outperformed all competitive products
in basic braking function (and nobody but Banks has anything
like a Speed Control Mode!)
clean install; all-electronic design requires only a few
simple underhood connections; no modifications to the exhaust
system are needed
Status Indicator with on-screen alerts (excessive coolant
or trans temps, for example)
touch-screen control - Displays vehicle speed, current braking
effort (relating to vane position), trans temp, engine coolant
temp and much more
ON: Maximum braking; High, Med and Low strength settings
SPEED CONTROL: Maintains pre-selected target speed
effective braking than is possible with a simple valve assembly
with no handling fees or extra charges when you buy at Thoroughbred
of the all-electronic design.
is fast, clean and easy. No cutting. No welding. No wire tapping.
No wire splicing. Unlike conventional exhaust brakes, SpeedBrake
is plug-and-play! It interacts with the vehicle in a way that
no conventional exhaust brake ever has. It uses Banks PowerPDA®
to interface with the vehicle's ECU, intelligently controlling
the variable geometry turbo vanes, torque converter clutch
application and transmission gear selection to optimize braking
MODE: select the level of braking aggressiveness you want:
High, Medium, Low. "SPEED CONTROL" MODE: select
and maintain a specified downhill speed (25-75 mph). PowerPDA®
provides 2-way communication and displays vehicle parameters,
including vehicle speed, current braking effort relating to
vane position, trans temp and engine coolant temp. It also
has a system status indicator with on-screen alerts, and OBDII
scan tool capability. Amazing!
DOWNHILL CRUISE CONTROL
Imagine setting your "comfort zone" and cutting
downhill speed by nearly 80% without even touching the brake
pedal, keeping your brakes cool and ready for emergencies
should they arise. The SpeedBrake increases the stopping power
of your truck and extends the service life of your brakes,
and does so while maintaining your sanity.
EXHAUST BRAKES SUPPOSE TO SLOW YOU DOWN?
That's what we thought too, but the other products on the
market provide inadequate braking power and actually allow
your speed to increase as you plummet faster and faster downhill.
With the competition's poor performing product, you are forced
to use your truck's brakes and manually shift your transmission
in an effort to gain lost confidence.
YOUR FATHER'S BRAKE.
The SpeedBrake is an all-electronic mastermind of braking
technology. Plug-in connection makes for a clean, simple installation
without cutting or tapping into vital wire harnesses. There's
no crawling under the truck to cut up your exhaust system
and no mechanical "adjustments" necessary to insure
its function. SpeedBrake uses the trucks own components to
give you the safety you need when towing, so there's no added
mechanical parts to second guess.
With the SpeedBrake there's no competition and no compromise.
This smart device becomes an active component of your vehicle,
constantly monitoring and adjusting systems to achieve the
speed setting you command. With its patented technology the
SpeedBrake controls your transmission's shifting, locks and
unlocks the torque converter and infinitely varies the V.G.
turbo's vanes to hold your set speed and maximize stopping
performance to ensure that you have the safety and confidence
for the long haul. Watch it all happen as the Banks iQ keeps
you informed by displaying important parameters and on-screen
alerts you set. And... it's also an OBD-II scan tool. - Now
