Their site says it is discontinued. Anything similar you would recommend?

Thanks!
That's 3 Lbs heavier than a factory 6 speed (which is 8 lbs heavier than the fiver), and for where the weight is located, it's almost a wash... Good stuff!

No one makes something similar to the racelogic anymore. If you can program you could add the functionality to MS, but its not there by default.

Eric, thats a 4 speed right?

Leafy are you saying megasquirt doesn't have traction control? Cause it's in there, works pretty well in a strait line, not so much in the corners.

MS has traction control but not like the racelogic. The RL takes all 4 wheel speed sensors and uses them to determine if the car is turning or going straight and allows for different % of slip depending on the turn. Eric can speak if it even determines the radius and allows varying amount of slip for the corner radius, I havent been deep enough into the RL to know.

Gotcha, I would say that racelogic does is boardering on stability control but that's just a name.

It doesn't really apply the brakes. Ford has had traction control that judges sidewaysness in mustangs since the late 90s but they basically used it as a safety device where you could turn the traction control "off" but as soon as your burnout got slippy TC comes back on.

Yea, They discontinued it about 5 years ago. They do come up used from time to time. But when they do, they don't last long. I have actually bought 3 just so I am sure I will have one if something goes wrong with mine.

Yea, unfortunately there isn't anything like the RaceLogic on the market. With the MS traction control is great, the RaceLogic is actually old F1 Technology and designed to work well in a car that turns.

Yea, It's a 4 speed. I have it geared currently to have a VERY small split between 2nd and 3rd. and 4th is 1:1.

Leafy is correct here. The RLTC reads the signals of all 4 wheel speed sensors. It then compares them to determine the speed of the car, if the car is going straight or turning and even how sever the turn is. There are different cut maps for going straight, turning, dry, wet and for "low speed get away" the unit I have also incorporates Launch Control. It took me about 5 years to get all the cut maps to work well and to be seamless.

Huh we've always talked about doing that in like EP hondas and stuff because you could mix and match and they were low power but I figured you'd have had the powerband to go the other way. With the turbo my 1.8 had like a 38mph to 72mph powerband and more 32-76 with the 2.5 litre so going to a gutted 5 speed locked into 4th with a speedway or winters quick change in a 7something rear end ratio seemed like a reasonable option to drop weight and drop failure points. I even did some test launches in 2nd and it didnt really have a negative impact besides probably making the clutch something to replace once or twice a year.

Always cool to see the build progress!

Question: Why did you keep the PPF? Seems like that's the first thing I'd get rid of. Aside from all the drive line wind-up that thing introduces, I had the pleasure of being underneath an F-Production car with a PPF delete, and was really impressed how much easier everything looks. They say it makes R&Ring the diff and/or trans a LOT easier.
