RE: [RC] trailer brakes/truck brakes - Levon Yengoyan

Please Note, a real Jake Brake such as that described in the web page works
by altering engine timing to produce compression braking.  The Jake Brake
(and other models) used in most of our Dodge, Ford, and Chevy trucks are
actually exhaust brakes.  That is, they work by restricting the flow of
exhaust not by altering engine timing.  Think of the old potato in the
exhaust pipe trick.

Have to comment that if you have a diesel truck, a >Jake brake is the best
$750 you can spend.

Can someone explain exactly what a 'Jake brake' is?

Thanks,
