Flex Fuel Capabilities

Did you know all Link ECU’s have Flex Fuel capability?

 

This includes all of our plug-in ECU’s as well, making it a breeze to enjoy the advantages of flex-fuel on any supported engine.

 

 

All of our ECU’s feature extra Digital Inputs allowing for the easy addition of an Ethanol Content Sensor.

 

Once the ECU is installed, PC Link G4+ software is pre-configured and streamlined for quick, simple flex-fuel integration for up to 100% ethanol (or methanol) with no additional software add-ons or unlocks required.

D1NZ 2018 season opener

This past weekend saw Round 1 of the all new New Zealand Xtreme Motorsport series held at Wellington Family Speedway in the nation’s capital. The series main feature – D1NZ, brought to you by Link ECU – had one of it’s most exciting rounds to date, enthralling over 6,000 fans with all the thrills, spills and skills that drifting provides. Eventually the round win was awarded to Matty Hill from Australia, running a Link ECU for the first time, and the ProSport class honors given to Link ECU supported Taylor James.

Taylor James had a brilliant weekend in the Central Drift Team S14, beating his team mate Ra Heyder to make the finals and eventually take the class win.

 

The event also saw many new cars come out to play. As well as the usual suspects of S chassis’ and 2JZ’s, this year saw a couple of V configuration engines mixing it up.

Jase Brown stepped up to the Pro class with this new whip – A Nissan s13 powered buy a Supercharged Toyota Lexus 1UZ V8. ‘Frankenstein’ as this beast has been dubbed, also runs a Link G4+ Thunder and Dash 2 Pro.

Jaron Olivecrona’s Hartley V12 powered beauty turned heads as expected, sounding just as good as it looks.

 

All practise sessions and battles were live-streamed on Facebook via D1NZ allowing fans from all over the world to tune in and check out the interesting track layout. Some bumps meant driver’s were not only lifting one wheel, but just about getting airborne at some points throughout the night.

If the action in Wellington was anything to go by, the next four rounds of the championship are going to be equally exhilarating. Link ECU is proud to be part of the action. See you all at Round 2 in Tauranga!

 

 

Link Japan at Tokyo AutoSalon

Link ECU had a great few days attending Tokyo Autosalon 2018. We have a large presence in Japan with our principal dealer Kenji Uchida supporting many other dealers, as well as race teams, drift cars and talented drivers.

Some of the street cars running Link were pretty impressive too:

Our sales staff were present in order to ensure the crowds were informed of Link ECU’s capabilities, and ensure growth in the Asian market.

Link now exports to over 65 countries. We are excited about our global presence and the positive feedback from all corners of the world. Rest assured our products meet record breaking standards across the globe!

See you next year, Tokyo.

 

Press Release: D1NZ 2018 title sponsor

Link ECU joins D1NZ as naming rights sponsor for 2018

New Zealand-based company Link ECU have confirmed they’ll expand their support for drifting domestically in 2018.

The country’s only recognised drifting series will be known as the Link ECU D1NZ National Drifting Championship from round one in Wellington onwards.

Last season the Christchurch company came on board as official partners of D1NZ’s live stream. 2018 will see Link ECU continue as the official supplier of ECUs for the series’ teams and drivers.

Link Engine Management CEO Andy Millard said taking their backing to the next level was a logical step for the organisation.

“Link ECU has had a long association with D1NZ over the years and it’s great to be able to shift it up as principal sponsor of the 2018 D1NZ National Drifting Championship,” Millard said.

“D1NZ has always been the premier drifting competition here in New Zealand and we’re happy to throw our support behind this year’s series, particularly as the main event in the NZ Xtreme Motorsport Series

“There’s no doubt it will be a a family motorsport extravaganza.”

Launched in 1991, the company began selling engine control units specially for race cars. The business began to expand and their biggest early success came when the late New Zealand rallying legend Possum Bourne began using the units.

While motorsport was the initial focus, Link ECU’s are used in performance cars, drag racing, jet skis, snowmobiles, aircraft, speedway, and jet-sprints in over 65 countries for over 25 years.

Link ECUs are a common staple in not only D1NZ, but around the world. Recently Link ECU came on board as primary sponsors for North America’s Formula DRIFT PRO2 Championship.

They are also primary backers of the Irish Drift Challenge and feature in the British Drifting Championship, Australian Drift Grand Prix and D1GP China.

D1NZ Category Manager Brendon White said Link ECU’s support has been a strong suit of the series.

“It’s superb to have a Kiwi owned company with such a strong international presence putting their support behind a Kiwi Motorsport series,” White said.

“For the longest time Link ECU have had a strong presence in the drifting scene and it’s good to have continuity among the teams and drivers.

“We’re looking forward to what 2018 will bring and having Link ECU on the face of it all when we start in Wellington is going to be mega.”

The majority of D1NZ’s competitors run Link ECU equipment. For the 2016–’17 season the company put their backing behind several drifters across Pro and Pro Sport, including Dylan Woolhouse, Stuart Baker, John O’Gorman and New Zealand’s youngest drifter Liam Honnor.

Millard said he’s looking forward to another season of D1NZ as the level of competition steps up and their presence continues to play a big part.

“D1NZ has some of the best drift pilots in the world and by supporting D1NZ, Link ECU is ensuring these drivers and their teams have an opportunity to show Kiwi audiences their best.

“This year’s competition is the best line-up yet and the crowds are going to be treated to some world-class drift action.”

“It isn’t by accident that the best drifters in the world run Link ECU products, whether at D1NZ, Irish Drift ChampionshipBritish Drift ChampionshipFormula Drift, ADGP … the winners standing on the podium have Link ECUs under their hood.”

Round one of the Link ECU D1NZ National Drifting Championship will take place at Max Motors Wellington Family Speedway in Upper Hutt over January 12-13.
