Is this of value to anyone?

Some time ago, probably in 2011 or 2012, I ordered a new Maxbrake controller. I did it because I thought the design made more sense than the standard electronic Controller. However I never got around to it, because my prodigy was doing everything I expected. I still have the Maxbrake which as near as I can tell is currectly out of production. I have decided that if I want to change to a advanced controller, I would want to try the DirectLink, because I'm a computer oriented guy.

Is this worth putting on the classifieds?

It is basically NIB. The box has only been opened for inspection. It came with cables and adapters to install on my 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel. I have no idea what other years/models it is compatible with.

Ken

Ken,

I'd almost buy it as a spare for my Maxbrake only because it's no longer made and I think it's a great controller.

Should sell easily and I think the adapters are common brass hydraulic parts and easily overcome if it doesn't match a different TV.

That didn't take long at all.

It's a darn good unit.

I own a maxbrake and it works great, head and shoulders over our old Prodigy. If I were Ken I would think twice about spending the money on a Directlink since he already owns the Maxbrake.

I've had a few people say they would buy it. (some via PM) Now the question is what is it worth. I do know not even know what I paid for it, and I can't find it on the internet any longer. Could someone tell me what the price was new? I don't want to auction it here . So I will come up with what I think is fair, and offer it to those who have expressed a desire, in order of their request.

Ken

What you say is probably true, but I don't feel like messing around with the brake hydraulics. The Directlink would be a quick swap back and forth with the prodigy. I am a belt and suspenders guy. I always like to have a back up.

The installation is not really difficult. Run one cable thru a firewall grommet. Bleeding is a minor only requiring having the transducer loose on it's fitting, easy pressure on brake pedal until fluid squirts out, tighten transducer. Clean up brake fluid then run engine apply strong pedal pressure checking for leak. Connect cables. Proceeded to calibration. Test drive and enjoy.

Hi Ken, the Maxbrake was about $300.00 of so new. I bought one about 5 years ago and it stoped working. I am looking to replace it.

Thanks

Thanks for all help. I decided on what I felt was a fair price. The first member that had contacted me this AM agreed that it was a fair price and its on it way to a new home. I wish I had enough for everyone who is looking. I had forgotten about this one, so maybe I'll find more of them. We're in the middle of a major house cleaning effort.

Thanks again,

Ken
