      Great dissertation!

      Someone once asked me if they could use my mower. I said "sure, so long as it doesn't leave my yard"

        The whole idea is half baked, why on earth they didn't develop a driver and boost controller to go with it I have no idea.
        Launching a new product that the vast majority of your customer base cant use is mind boggling dumb. They are fucked if nobody comes up with a way to drive and interface it.

          you can drive it but you cannot do it directly... so you have to use 3rd party products to do it..

          even after weeks of thinking about this I cannot see a point where I would need to use something like this.. even on the commodore where we go from 9-10psi at launch to 60psi in 2sec where I would be worried the valve would not open quick enough to control the spike...

          and apparently i dont know shit...

            So where exactly are you lot getting this information from?

            Is there are tech pub that Turbosmart released on this that I haven't read?

                Another way to control traction or torque management? I'd guess this is more for the circuit where you would want such advances. It is a interesting product, certainly a hit at SEMA and got people talking.

                  you cannot use boost to control traction on a drag or a circuit car after it has started to spin the tyres, its way too slow, you can only retard timing and/or drop random cylinders,

                    a lot of it is model based, but gives you some excellent functions to understand a turbocharger. interesting conclusions are made from page 96 (section 6.7)
                    Interesting that they found that Cascade setup using a speed sensor made a difference.
