We did not keep the electronic wastegate... although electronic boost control is something that could be developed, for the purposes of testing, we wanted to approach it from a more systematic angle and introduce the smallest amount of variables at any given point in time. In the future, we will return to the electronic wastegate conversation...to really vet out what that looks like and how it functions and see if the pro's outweigh any obstacles, ETC. Excellent question, tho!
Good to know! Thanks for the info. Can't wait to see the progress done by you guys on this platform.

Overly detailed write up.. I read basically none of it .... I can definitely tell you have sales background (plug it where you can I guess). Also I think you might have a future gig in writing children's novels.

Great numbers though, one of the first quick Si's I have seen around in a while.

I think that it is important to document the process of enhancing the platform and documenting the weak points that we will exploit. I intend to continue to keep people informed as we progress and you can expect part two tomorrow as we head back out =)

Thanks... it means a lot. I think you guys deserve the extra effort... and, truth be told... the information I am trying to share is the information I would personally crave if I were looking to race my car... but it is true what they say... sometimes you can't make everyone happy, I guess

What are you guys doing to preload the driveline when launching? Is the brake hold button any use for this? Can’t wait til my map dp shows up!

Sorry that I missed this

To answer your question... what we are doing right now? Hard launches in 2nd gear... likely resulting in the destruction of our transmission...lol... we ARE working on a method to trigger the brake for better, more consistent launches, absolutely!
