Banks Brake is tops in safety, because it produces higher, more sustained braking power than other exhaust brakes. Only Banks Brake contains electronic features that improve operation and drivability. Its computerized brake control (CBC) module automatically senses throttle position, controls brake engagement and cuts out annoying brake noises. The fast warm-up function prolongs brake durability. Automated brake disengagement at low speed smoothes stop-and-go driving. The pressure actuator is coated with a high-tech material to withstand the harshest environment. Built for years of trouble-free service, Banks Brake never needs adjustment.
