Well done Sean!

Send some data my way and I'll let you know where you can make improvements!

I'd say people want to get a base line for the speed of the car so they can compare the Motec ECU to something that's well known. Say if you end up going 0.2 faster than when it had Cobb on it and nothing else changed, it semi proves the ECU is capable of improving an already fast car. There are lots of factors though so if you can go considerably faster that will be great
Very true, but some people may see it as a $1500 Cobb is capable of keeping up with a $5000+ ecu.
I'm not hating. Just putting out there is always another way to see it too. I have an M800 in my Supra so I know MoTeC does great stuff.

Keep up the good work guys!

Good Job!

I see your point, but when you're at the pointy end of the field a couple of grand is not much to spend to shave off a tenth or two! Plus, the quality of the Motec data logging is worth it alone.

Data aquisition and driveline saving control of torque and the VDC system will make it very worth it in the long run.

Very good alternative and I am sure we will see improvement once it gets dialed in correctly, we are merely testing at this point.

Great results for the 1st time out.. Not many people ( myself Included ) are willing to do the R&D with a such a complicated system on such an expensive car.. As we all know a few little mistakes and it can cost you a 10k clutch or an engine.. Ill be ready for it soon..

AWD motorsports the R and D has been done 1 year ago, MoTeC don't release anything unless its perfect .Dodson motorsport has been using it in there race car(tarmac rally) and has been doing most the testing in real world race conditions for motec I believe ,motec also have there gtr that they tested the hell out of before release ,I also have been testing the motec for around 9 months ago on my own GTR 1000+hp ..The product is perfect you wont do any damage to clutches,engines or anything if you know what you doing , and I know Sean knows what he,s doing

Thanks Mario, I couldn't have said it better myself!
I'm seeing higher and higher power figures but everything keeps working as expected, no surprises! We have found a couple of minor faults that effect drivability in rare cases and these have been fixed as well as lots of new features in the current beta version.
What might be concidered R&D is individual tuners learning how everything in the ECU works. Sean and Mario are well on top of it, and using the version exactly as it was the day it was released earlier this year.

That's what I meant by r&d actually. Sean has taken the time to learn the system and how it operates and affects the car on his own vehicle so when it's time to transition over from Cobb to motec it's seamless and we have little to no issues at all. I know motec doesn't release products like some others and make the end user beta test on their own car and find out the hard way what doesn't work right.

Doing more testing, almost there as far as control.

The track was horrible and it was over 90 deg today and humid, car was down 3 mph from last week.

made 2 8.9 passes, 2 9.1 passes a 17 sec and 15 sec pass testing some stuff :)
