TMS Drag Pro
How does it work?
The Non Self-Learning systems, like our Sportsman series, periodically compares the rate of acceleration of the driveshaft to an Adjustable Fixed Rate (AFR), known as Threshold. If the DS RPM rate of change is in excess of that Threshold, then a correction is made. The comparison is made every 1/8 of a turn of the driveshaft.
The biggest difference in our systems is the Speed and the Self-Learning capabilities. Other systems “brag” that their TC works 10 times a second—our older systems worked 20 times a second, and while it would help “save a run”, it just was not fast enough to help you go faster.
The new systems (since Jan 2009) work every 1/8th of a turn of the driveshaft. At 3000 RPM DS speed, a very critical area for tire slip, it measures the DS RPM 400 times a second, at 6000 DS RPM it measures 800 times a second! The system then processes those measurements 50 times a second (typically), and as fast as 100 times a second, to calculate acceleration change (DS RPM Delta). (We can actually use up to 30 triggers, which would be 1500 times a second at 3000 DS RPM, and 3000 times a second at 6000 DS RPM !!)
