HEL Brake line question ???

So I've got an '06 and am shopping around for braided lines. I've decided on HEL's and have looked around for a good source (actually if any sponsors can get me a great deal PLEASE give me a price qoute and you'll get my business) and found them here:
http://www.oppracing.com/products/48...-clutch-lines/

My question is...what the hell is the deal with a "pressure switch" ??? All I want are a set of front and rear lines, a double banjo for the front, and some new washers...

Inquiring minds wanna know ???

If you've got a aftermarket brake master they generally don't come with a switch for the brake light, the pressure switch activates the brake lights when enough pressure is made in the brake system.

Good find DF. I've heard about Hel but their product is hard to find for a '08.

If I were you I'd ask the sponsors if they can beat these prices.

From what I understand Hel makes most of their stuff when it's ordered?!?! Not sure how true that is but I've heard lots of people say how good they are.

So then there would be no need to buy one on a stock MS? Sorry for the dumb question but this is the first time I've come upon this option.

You are correct. The new Brembo RCS master has a built in micro switch too, a industry first.
