Is it basically a locker type, 3rd member unit? I havent heard of it.
Traction control doesnt suit my driving style,(I like to slide it in like its a dirt car), but I am always interested in learning about the new pieces that come out.
In the past few years I have seen cars that sound like they lost a cylinder or two in the corners. But never spin a wheel and rocket out. They seemed to be playing with the timing ,or pulling out the axles regularly for some reason. Im guessing a sensor type deal.
A top mid-west driver was DQ'ed at the Nationals a few years ago for a "Olson" style locker. Any insight on this stuff?

you dont have to run tractio control device to appear to loose two cylinders, i ran a high rpm cam and under acceleration until it got to 4600 rpm sounded like crap. but when it cleared the car was hooked up and movin, had to tear apart rear end at two different tracks and had my dui distributer inspected as well because everyone swore i used traction control. just my two cents, but find another way to make your car hook-up besides black-gold

I agree with your cam theory. However, in this scenario the motor was eventually claimed,it ran strong and smooth for the new owner.
