Exclamation Launch Control

Terry here is the response I got form Race Logic regarding LC. Sounds promissing!


Hi Jeff,

You may remember me - I used to work at Superchips (we are just around the corner) although when I did I was known as Sid. Good to hear from you.

I can well imagine that the 335 is proving popular - when I heard that BMW were to release this car my first thought was that it would be a tuner's dream. However, there are a few issues associated with modern BMWs and our traction control system:

Firstly, very sensitive misfire detection system. This is rather fundamental as this is how RLTC works - by misfiring the engine when wheel spin is detected. The BMW management shuts cylinders down on detecting a misfire, in the same way that the VAG cars put the whole thing into limp-home. There is a company over here who do a lot of modifications to E46's, the M3 especially, who can turn this off, but I bet that nobody has managed to do it in the 335 yet.

Secondly, the ABS system uses active ABS sensors, not passive, and this again makes it incompatible with our standard TC system, which needs to reference from standard ABS signals with a 0-5V or 0-12V signal. Active ABS has a constant +12V signal with the current being measured instead.

However, all is not lost. We have a version of our traction control system which gets wheel speed and RPM values from CAN, rather than voltage signals. Once we are capable of switching off the misfire detection, and can provide a CAN log showing wheel speed, wheel spin, and RPM, then there is a good chance we could further develop the product to work on this car.

If you're interested in this let me know. I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,

Mike Broadbent,
Sales Manager.

I don't know Terry from a man on the moon and I could care less what he does, but unless you have proof to back that statement up, you now have a reputation for committing libel.

He is the hippie on the right. Today when I was driving I was being followed by a honda civic with a hippie van sticker on the left window. I when I saw the back window I clearly saw a sticker of a canadian flag. I think Omar has sent canadian hippie ninjas after me to try to stop me.

Just doing some reading on Launch Control and I found this. WOW
Shiv, the Procede has come a long way. Is the current version of Launch Control the same. Will the user select the desired launch RPM?

I think the only valid thing resurrected, was the memories of the constant jibes and attacks Terry inflicted on Shiv before Burger Tuning even existed........LOL,..no wonder he's no longer welcome here.
