Do you have a calibration file to share for the Speedster / VX Piwo? ;)

Useful in case I go for it.

 

Any reason your tooth count is different front / rear (29 / 30)?

In the old software  it was possible to set the operating threshold from 5%. It was this difference to set the threshold at 2% (1 tooth  it was 3.3% higher speed of the rear wheels). In current software, you can set the action threshold from 1.5% so we set [color=rgb(40,40,40);font-family:helvetica, arial, sans-serif;]front / rear (30 / 30)[/color].

I've received my RaceTCS. Unfortunately we've still got snow and i have not let the car out yet. Will post a short review once installed.

Is it better to use this coaxial cable (HDMI) or shielded ethernet twisted pair (S/FTP)? Working on my car and might as well put the cables in when i'm there anyhow.

Yes, S/FTP has four shielded twisted pairs and a collective shield around the whole cable. In the racetcs manual it's stated to use shielded twisted pair ethernet cable, hence my question what's better. Looked in my collection of wiring and still have loads of S/FTP, so would rather use that than the coaxial HDMI cable you picture above

 

Nice initiative this TCS btw, sounds like a great deal

Ethernet twisted pair cable is also good choice. With this TCS driver wins the last time attac in Poland. https://m.facebook.c...819577924729801

Just curious.. What's your experience with the engine ECU setting a misfire code and going into limp/safety mode if you are cutting fuel?

 

No issue on a mappable/race ECU as it doesn't care at all but most OEM/road ECU's (EU3 and later OBD equipped ones) don't really like it if the crank rotation speed changes suddenly.

 

AFAIK this was a common issue on the old Racelogic TC on various engines if the amount of fuel adjustment/reduction got too big. That also cut the injector pulses.

From manual: "Requirements In order for TCS to be safe to engine, some requirements need to be met first: a. Sequential Fuel Injection b. High impedance fuel injectors c. The car has no misfire detection (or has it disabled). If misfire detection is active and TCS is connected, Check Engine Light can pop up and indicate damaged ignition coil. d. Injectors are not PWM controlled"

On OBD-Tuner, miss-fire detection is easily disabled.

Like Gadget man above, I would be interested in having one fitted but beyond my electrical ability....
