Abbey Motorsport Ecutek Traction control

Recommended Posts

We been waiting for a Ecutek RaceRom update to allow us to push on our Traction control development , being a master tuner we have a Beta RR package that allows us to do this.

 
With some carefully built RR maps and the EVI Ecutek Bluetooth module we have got a pretty good adjustable traction control set up still needs some more work but already it is pretty good

Your see wheel slip at the bottom being controlled. Throttle pedal is fully down commanding 80% throttle butterfly opening but our RaceRom custom maps is keeping the Throttle butterfly only @ 54% reducing the power together with reducing timing normally @ 5000rpm and 1.9 engine load we would see around 23/24 deg timing our RaceRom maps are dropping the timing to around 14 degs to reduce the power to keep the wheel speed (slip) under control. The traction is controllable via the Ecutek Bluetooth EVI with a slider to adjust the amount of traction control
 
We should soon have this sorted so when the new RaceRom update is released it will be available to our Ecutek tuned customers. We hope to have 2 levels calibrated to enable use without having a Ecutek EVI module but it wont be adjustable by the driver

Interesting stuff, I presume you're controlling to a wheel slip target and its that which will be variable with the Ecutek EVI module?

The EVI slider adjusts a multiplier within the traction control RaceRom maps. We actually have 2 adjustments at the moment while we fine tune the set up @DanJ

does this overwrite the standard traction control system? or does it force the factory system to off and then you change the map to the traction control level you want?

It's only set to activate when you turn the OEM TCS off. So you can have the OEM TSC setup and then when you turn that off you can use this or not depending on the mode you're in or EVI setup.

Will this be available as an EcuTek EVI Module update that we can do at home?  Or via the app? Or is it something we’d need to come in to have updated?

Its our own development not ECUTEK. So will only be available from Abbey and will only be if we have already tuned your car previously or when you upgrade to our tuning.

 

Just speaking to my solicitor as well to check about the liability consequences with this upgrade
