I do have a tendency to like to do things right, the first time.

The MoTeC can fully do flex fuel, and to my knowledge was one of the first ECUs to do it. I was doing flex fuel on the MoTeC back when Jason was still working for AEM. ProEFI did drive the popularity of the feature though, to the point now it is a major shopping point for the average ECU consumer.

ViPEC V88 does flex fuel very well, but no speed based traction control (yet).

If you mean it doesn't handle it in the software like the ProEFI then your statement is correct. They are two different ECUs and the end fueling calculations are handled differently. However if you mean the MoTeC cannot fully compensate for the changing ethanol content and adjust fuel, timing, boost, start enrichment, accel fuel and a myriad of other things then your statement is a bit misleading.
