      BS.:D
      Some do, some don't, some that are not supposed to do, and some that usually suck are fine.

      I run the Hurst valve from Jegs.com and it works perfect.
      The button and light are kinda cheesy, so I used better ones.

        The Hurst Roll Control has been on my Duster for 18 years with no problems/ no leaks.

          I was looking at the Hurst. I just don't want anything to leak. That's my biggest concern.

          I use the Biondo. Been in my car since the 90's. Still works great. No problems at all.

            I run the Jegs brand, switched from Hurst a few years back due to lost pressure. I can hold the front brakes for ever with the Jegs. as mentioned above some leak down some don't. If you are worried about actual fluid leaks that all on the installation and what you use.

              After years of racing on and off the track most are all good as long as you flair the tubing properly and use good quality brass fittings and steel tube nuts. No compression fittings and basically “low pressure” means a leak or low voltage. The electrical coils used to open the valve or hold the valve get hot when energized and draw more power. If the power is not there then the magnet drops holding and the valve seeps fluid by or shuts down all together. They are used for heating up the rear tires (30-45 sec) not as a parking brake.

              Good luck as I am putting one on my 66’ as I type this. I went Hurst.
