anyone used one or have any horror storys on them before i buy one?
Never even heard of this befor!
How much are they?
I would say u would be better gettin a hondata s300 wich has both of these built in & u get a fully programable ECU.
this si not an ecu its a smal device like a vtec controller
mainly used for turbo cars its sole purpose is to shoot flames abd make big noise
it works by cutting the spark instead of the injectors like most launch system,so big wads of un burnt feul goes through the engine and expelled as flames out the exhaust
YouTube - type r civic with launch control
cool video isnt it
friend had it on his AE86. Was good fun to scare the living **** outta kids around the neighborhood.
That's pretty much it.
....it looks cool, you can tune car to do that. I used to have mine spitting a 2foot flame with like a shotgun bang everytime I shifted up high-rpm.
Its no good on your engine though, washing the oil form your cylinders and makes high cyl head temps (moreso on turb motors). Its harmful to your engines life over time.
Noticed the cam man hidin the smoke you get with all that fuel too! lol
well i wouldnt be using it tooo much tbh.
if you get some one driving up your exhaust you can give them a oilt petroly smockey shower of BeeR.lol
or for the people in traffic that like to pull up AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE you can just melt their bumper.lolololol
My mate has one of these on his Starlet Turbo, he says its great! It does sound good and it is scary! He used it to great effect as launch control at crail last sunday so it is good but he uses is far too much and now there is a puff of blue smoke every time he changes gear now!! He was running 14secs on the quarter mile! a pocket rocket like!
Melting the bumper, I'd love to do that to some of the folk that pull up behind me!!
do u know what pins he connected to
Friend has one on his d14 and has used it solidly for the last two years, it's loud and it bangs!! Lol, and then wiring it up to the handbrake sensor allows the launch control to be used. Engine seems healthy, although if you care about your exhaust don't overuse it, and it will blow your cat in bits if its still there!
Oh and he definitely notices it works better with higher octane fuel!
Young boys hi
