Thumbs Up New HPF Traction Control Information and Picture

We're finishing up dialing in the traction control systems that are now included with stages 3 & 4. We are also considering offering it at a later date to stage 2 and 2.5 customers at a price, but that may or may not happen depending on the projects on our plate.

Our stage 3 & 4 cars also have speed based boost control to progressively deliver more power to the ground as the car is accelerating, but the majority of the variance from car to car is controlled by the switch in the picture below. Customer's with stock tires will typically be running in the "street" mode. Customer's with 275's to 295's will be running in the "sport" mode, and customer's with widebodies and tires larger than 305's will typically choose the "race" mode. These settings change how the car reacts with the ground and allow full throttle driving even with 800rwhp on tap.

There is also a "rain" setting that allows the driver to full throttle it in the rain and help keep the car in a straight line minimizing wheelspin. There's also an "off" setting to disable traction control entirely.

Here's a picture of one the traction control switch...

hope you do decide to offer it to stage 2 and 2.5. I am already contemplating sending my car back for the 2.5 and this would most likely seal the deal for me...lol

Thats pretty sick... Why not offer it to stage 2's right now? Would it require a different "tune"?

Chris,

Very cool stuff. Should be interesting to see 60 - 130 times for the Stage 3 with this setup. Look forward to more updates.

Haven't had a chance to talk to Chris yet, but if they need a Stage 2.5 test car I could probably arrange something.

Scott, if you send it back you gotta get stage 3 fuel (and maybe a PT70 ). Bye bye Ford GT...


PS: Chris, your stage 3 listing shows HPF 750cc injectors in the pictorial breakdown instead of the RC 1200cc injectors.
