We have put few shims between gears on the LSD to lock the gears at initial torque. It's hard to explain, but even stock Torsen LSD does have two plates on the middle of the LSD.
You put shims between the plates to create the pressure between gears. This way will create some initial locking torque.


Aaaa, I didn't know that about Torsens. Must look into this abit more, before I pull mine apart..... Cheers.

It's just the regulation of the track.
The tapes suppose to holds the broken pieces of headlight if there are any accidents.

Did some regular maintenance for next track day.
Installed new plugs, new brake pads...
Also added Hardrace adjustable rear toe link + tension rod.
Gave 0 total toe on the rear since the GT wing is holding rear pretty well. :)

Since I have took my IS200 to track once a month, here are additional pictures from recent track event/racing school held by our BROS team.
Now white IS200 also have 3S-GE w/6 speed swap!!!
Enjoy! :)

Part 13 : Stand-alone ECU swap!!


Because we modified stock i-ETAS to work only by cable, the Altezza ECU seems to keep learning the difference between TPS sensor and Accelerator sensor.
It caused some dramatic ignition timing changes over time, making car run poor as time goes.

So we believed it's time to go with stand-alone ECU. :)
Because of its cost and flexibility, we decided to go with universal stand-alone AEM EMS-4.

I also never liked the idea of running both ECU(stock and AEM EMS-4), we have made AEM EMS-4 to work truly stand-alone.
A/C and Dual VVT-i were also being controlled by the AEM EMS-4. :)



AEM EMS-4!!!
Image




Bye bye stock ECU!! (another weight savings!!! HAHA!!)
Image




It does take some good amount of times and parts to make it wok...
I will post up the results(possibly some good dyno graphs) once I finalize the tune!!!

Those are resistors on the last picture.
Actually we did not end up using much extra wires. :)
The basic tune is already done. The car runs smooth without stock ECU at all. A/C and other functions also work.
