hey i got a 3 pump set up ..

and i was wondering about getting those detrol t handle slow downs ...are they worth it .. any one using them having any probs with them...

i got two old detrols on the rear and the round knob broke off one and the other one broke too ... the one on the front is another brand that came with my chrome showtime comp set up ... but it has a light stamped steel handle ..

i know they would look good in the trunk ...but looks aint always everything ..

Granted some are over kill... That one is a good slowdown.... a lot better than the cheap ones that leak like crazy from some other places that come standard in some kits ;)

I thought that my slowdowns were going to be a precise.... LoL I was wrong.. they are the colr band parker ones 1.2 inch... I can even open them more than 1/4 a turn or the car will come crashing down when I dump it...

even though i will get kicked in the face for being a dumb ass askin a dumb question.......here goes:
are you sure they are slowdowns and not needle valves? my slowdowns are verry accurate ( parker color bands ) but the needlvalves i barelly turn and its like being wide open. just askin. i have bought a total of 4 slowdowns off layitlow, and i have gottin 4 needle valves.

but being as its you were talkin to, i know that you know your shit, i had to ask.........
