Default Anti-Rev (traction control)

Has anyone messed with this at all. I know its probably not better than works ok, but I figure it might be useful if setup properly. I searched msextra and there isn't really any useful information on it.

I don't have abs, but I don't need it either. The reason I'm asking about it is because I figured spinning out coming out of a turn because you hit 20psi suddenly and are making 350whp wasn't something I wanted to be doing any time soon.

Please don't turn my thread into a circus. I'm genuinely interested in peoples experiences with the traction control built into MS.

I don't think Matt's telling you to get ABS for the braking or to be a dick. I think he's inferring using the speed sensor rings found on ABS-equipped cars to monitor individual wheel speeds.


You can also explore closed loop boost control, particularly boost by throttle position.

It is both vss and rpm based though.

yeah that's what I thought. I assume they mean to either pick up the vss signal or for you to install an optical pickup on the driveshft, and the ms looks for dV/dt, and if the difference is too high it retards

Well according the the msnse manual it either runs on vss or rpm from our cas. I was just wondering if anyone had actually tried it out. I don't exactly know how you would go about tuning it without just doing burnouts. Currently still being on the 1.6 diff rules that out for me. 1.8 diff isn't going in until the motor is built so that I can do the 6speed with it.

I asked this question to DIYAutotune, and this was their answer... I think you can still go deeper into the matter... I am also really interested is using this feature, it would be the maker or breaker for me to buy the MSPNP...

QUOTE"The traction control is RPM based and pulls different amounts of timing
at different angular acceleration rates (there's also provisions for VSS
readings on the front and rear wheels, but the MSPNP doesn't have
hardware for that). On the MSPNP, you would need to use RPM based mode.
You specify the threshold in RPM/sec at which you want the traction
control to kick in. You can then specify the amount of timing to pull at
3,000, 4,000, 6,000, and 10,000 RPM/sec. We haven't tested this out on
our development cars, but this is a feature of the code." END OF QUOTE.

why would this be a make or break? to me it is probably the least interesting feature of MS. we're not making 1000hp here.
