The transbrake locks the transmission between two gears so it mechanically cannot move. This makes it so you do not have to use the brake pedal and with a rev limiter - you can launch with the release of a button (more accurate using your finger/thumb for a launch instead of your foot releasing the brakes).

For the street - no real advantage except a cool toy. For the track, it definately improves your reaction time consistancy
