The clutch was a 9/9 that clutch is rated to about 900lb but it can hold more given the right conditions. The issue is that after the transmission gets hot the clutch would start to slip. We can easily add tables in syvecs that will manage the torque applied to the clutch and would deal with this issue.
Just to clarify the car made (I'll have to look up the torque numbers) 1070whp on a mainline dyno if I recall on what was told to us to be Kuwait fuel ...
At 950whp or even 1000whp this would not be an issue.
The knock control in Cobb is not very robust nor does it have a way to establish properly the thresholds of what knock is and what isn't. Another issue is that the timing correction is global and not individual cylinder based. At -9 deg of timing from mbt even I would consider this a runaway combustion. Events like that will melt an engine very quickly within one pull... Syvecs deals with this differently.
Boost control. Only a simple feed forward strategy in Cobb no additional tables are available. The boost control in syvecs and Motec is way more capable.
Now when you are at the absolute limits of the fuel you want control that is precise accurate has additional functions and most importantly propper feedback.
I've explained the above numerous times. If people choose to ignore it i can't change that.
When you go to the doctor you don't tell him how to do his job because more likely than not the results won't be what you expected.
If I may remind you that the Switzer ultimate made well over 900hp way before anyone believed was possible or attempted to run over 30 psi on pump gas. That was done mainly on Cobb. I have done well over 50 of those cars and to my knowledge not a single engine failure from tuning issues has been reported to this day. I can also tell you that those numbers weren't aways easy to achieve. Some knocked. Some required additional adjustments some were fuel quality limited. With advancements in parts and what we have learned about the GTR platform we've been able to push that even further these days.
I've worked with Cobb since the days John Banks was helping us develop patches and suffered through the entire theoretical pw glitches with speed density. I think I know a little bit about how it works or what makes an engine tick.
We at Switzer even had the first pseudo standalone with ProEFI long before Syvecs was around or Motec.
We at Switzer were the North America Syvecs support and worked closer with Syvecs than any other shop in the world (at the time I was there) now I'm at the only other shop that Syvecs officially has a branch office. Does that make me biased towards it. NO. I don't make a dime off the sale of the ECU. I simply advice what's best for the situation in question.
And please don't make bold statements like it's easy to do when you don't have all the details. You've only heard one side of the story. And especially if you are not a calibrator aka tuner.
I don't know everything nor have I ever stated that I do.. BUT To say I don't know what I'm doing is simply untrue. I think my track record proves otherwise and the people that know me seem to think that way as well. You don't just get to work with AMS on Alpha G if you didn't know what you were doing.
This is most likely the one and only reply you will get from me because frankly I have customers to attend to that value what we do and listen to what we advise and I don't have the time to be a keyboard warrior on the internet. If you have something to tell me you know where the garage is, I'm here to discuss your issues.
Now I've been through the pissing match once with one of these guys when he accused us of copying ETS kits in China few months back and unfortunately that post got deleted, so I can tell you exactly how this will go. Words taken out of context and twisted to suit some agenda that I've no idea how I got drug into. I know for a fact that there are other people pulling the strings on this one as I've seen text message exchanges with the individuals in question. I will not mention any names and we will deal with it appropriately here in UAE.
As to the original poster I and FPerformance have nothing personal we are still here to help if you would like but it seems to me that isn't the case.
Have a nice discussion hopefully it stays civil.
I find it very funny how you are trying to spin the whole thing on Cobb
When i can bring up a dozen of cars running the exact transmission ( Shep 1k )
Runninf the same setup and even more power without any issues or slipping
You want to blame it on the heat ?
How hot can a Transmission get in 2 or 3 pulls ? I DON'T THINK that's enough to cause a clutch to slip
The amount of knock on alkout's car is insane ether your tune is horrible or there is something worse going on with the car ? Again its a fresh build and this will also point out to the shady work of FP
Funny thing i have seen another fresh build from your shop knocking almost the same and it's also tuned by you on Cobb
It seems your only good at two things
Tuning junks like syvecs and proefi
And about your conspiracy theory
It's one more idea to trying to get away from the main issue? The horrible job you and your shop did on an expansive build ?
Prove what your saying
Post those screen shots
Like it matters anyway ?
This post wouldnt be here if it wasn't for you and the incompetant shop in the first place
Yea the illuminati didn't do this
You and FP did.
I'm the only one with an agenda to expose you here
You have said stupid things and never cared about people's hard earned money
You deliberately turn off safety trips on Cobb because we rich arabs can afford paying for new engines and repairs .
Don't play the victim
Don't blame Cobb for your incompetence
