After its activated and pulses it stays on at 100%... that way if you do pedal,, it doesnt start over in the middle of the track...

So if i wired it like that to activate the controller,, it run what i have it set at,,,then burp threw the engine....

Setting is as follows
.4 tenths delay after launch
start at 50%
ramp to 100% in .5

Ok, thought about this a minute, I think this will work. Note, this changes the circuit so the throttle switch does NOT activate the relay anymore. The relay goes hot when the arming switch is turned on.

How do you have the transbrake relay wired in? If that relay is setup to interrupt the activate wire going into the progressive, this should work fine.

When Transbrake is activated it turns WOT switch off then
when released the WOT switch activates the solenoids and controller.

In this diagram u would have to press the WOT switch to get 12 to the controller
and have a button to ground it..

Might want to think about that a bit more. Yes, the WOT switch has to be depressed in order to trigger the progressive, but you don't want to trigger that when you're burping it. The controller will still ground the solenoids as it did before when it's activated. What this does is make the solenoids hot when you arm the system, and when you hit that burp button they will turn on - without activating the controller. Controller should work as before.

Your transbrake relay should work the same, it would interrupt the wire between the WOT switch and the Progressive.

Exactly like John said. Have the arming switch make the solenoids hot and the wot switch just turn the controller on. This is how mine is wired, although I don't engine purge. Just curious but why do you want to purge through the engine? I was under the assumption that it made the system hit harder, but you don't need that if you're using a progressive to kill power anyway.

You must have changed your post? Did you figure out the deal with the progressive starting while on the brake?

Looks good to me. Have you tested it yet?
