parts mike driveline brake/vss

http://www.partsmike.com/store/store...on=show_detail

Anybody on here tried one of these kits from Parts Mike? It combines a driveline brake with a VSS. It looks like the brake rotor has slots that the VSS sensor use to get the 40 ppr VSS signal that a lot of GM engines require.

I am going to be running a 5.3/TH350/Atlas and was sweating what to do about a VSS, and it would be nice to have the driveline brake too. I searched and couldn't find any posts related to it.

I know you don't absolutely have to have a VSS, but it seems like the majority of the people that comment on this topic say that it is better to have one as the engine can sometimes stall without it.

I would like to have some kind of parking brake as I hate to get out of the vehicle on a steep hill and rely completely on the parking pawl to hold the vehicle. I don't really like the rear calipers with built in e brakes as they seem to have some shortcomings too, so I was thinking about a driveline e brake, and if I get one it would seem like an elegant solution to the VSS to have them combined.

I would like to hear from anyone who actually has this brake to see how good of quality it is and whether or not they have had any problems.

I would think someone here would have tried it as it seems like a great idea in theory.

I'm running almost the same set as and you don't need the vss. When you have your pcm reprogrammed they can remove that. Its not needed. Been running this for over 3 years and had 0 problems. The driveline brake would be nice option.
