Conor Shanahan WINS Drift Masters season opener!

Congratulations to Link ECU driver Conor Shanahan who, on his 15th birthday, won the opening round of Drift Masters GP in Poland this past weekend!

After competing in the IDC (Irish Pro Drifting Championship) the past two years alongside his brother Jack, Conor has become a world class drifter despite his young age. To come up against 2017 Formula Drift Champions James Deane in the final was a dream come true for the young gun, let alone to beat him!

Link ECU E-throttle Module

Didn’t think you would ever convert to drive-by-wire, but now reconsidering?

Link Engine Management now has the solution for converting your cable throttle to a drive by wire configuration with our NEW E-throttle module!

Cable throttles are now being replaced by electronic versions which provide finer control and allow connectivity to other parts of the engine management system. Electronic throttles are, in general, more reliable than cable systems without the possibility of the throttle jamming, stretching or breaking.
The Link ECU E-throttle module can be used with the G4+ Storm and Kurofune ECU’s to enable drive-by-wire. It can also be used with our PlugIn’s and older G4 ECU’s.
The E-throttle module kit comes with the Ethrottle module and an eight-pin deutsch connector.

        

 

To switch your car from cable throttle to fly-by-wire, contact a Link ECU dealer today: www.linkecu.com/dealer-network

Formula Drift ‘The Wall’

At just the half-way point of the season, 2018 is shaping up to be on of the most competitive in Formula Drift’s 14 year history. As the championship headed to New Jersey for Round 4 this past weekend, the banked oval of of Wall Stadium Speedway set the stage for another epic round of Pro class battles.

A wet practise day on Thursday halted progress of many teams, but gave others the chance to work on cars after a short turn around from Formula Drift Road Atlanta Round 3 to NJ Round 4.

Friday Qualifying has held in hot, humid conditions and saw a lot of high scores in the 90’s awarded by the judges. Most of the usual suspects including James Deane, Federic Asabo, Justin Pawlak and Forest Wang all looked in good form. In the end, it was Link ECU supported ‘JTP’ Justin Pawlak and his Ford Coyote who managed to claim pole position!

This gave Justin a bye into the Top 16, and then a win into the Top 8 where he faced Chris Forsberg. After a OMT, the Falken Coyote came out on top and went on to the Final Four.

JTP’s car was running on song all weekend and he eventually climbed onto the podium in 3rd position! James Deane and his 2JZ (powered by a Link ECU Thunder) took out the top spot.

 

Another Link Engine Management sponsored driver, Jeff Jones, has been improving from strength to strength this season in his Nissan 370Z. After installing a G4+ Thunder at the beginning of this year, Jeff has been making use of the additional control and reliability he now has from his car. Adjusting idle RPM, changing fuel / ignition timing and using data logging are all features he has been making use of with Link ECU software PC Link. Jeff put in many great runs throughout the weekend but lost his Top 32 battle to Matt Feild. Nevertheless, it was great experience for Jones as Feild went on to take 2nd overall.

 

Deane Kearney didn’t have such luck in NJ. Car troubles mean’t his Viper was out of action after Thursday and was left competing in the borrowed car of Forest Wang for the remainder of the weekend. Despite a couple a wall knocks, the Irishman ended up putting down some solid runs and still had a smile on his face.

We are now looking forward to Round 5 in Washington, and then Round 6 in Saint Louis which will also host the Link ECU PRO2 Category!

See ya’ll there in the vendor area!

Conor Shanahan WINS Drift Masters season opener!

Congratulations to Link ECU driver Conor Shanahan who, on his 15th birthday, won the opening round of Drift Masters GP in Poland this past weekend!

After competing in the IDC (Irish Pro Drifting Championship) the past two years alongside his brother Jack, Conor has become a world class drifter despite his young age. To come up against 2017 Formula Drift Champions James Deane in the final was a dream come true for the young gun, let alone to beat him!

Check out the footage of their final battles here:

Gridlife Festival – drifting, time attack & music!

#GRIDLIFE returns to Gingerman Raceway for the 5th edition of the revolutionary Motorsports Festival experience this weekend! With more music, more guests and more on and off track action than ever before, #GRIDLIFE will once again be the ‘can’t miss event’ of the season.

Link ECU are proud to partner with the Gridlife series of events as an associate sponsor. Attracting such a wide variety of drivers and spectators interested in the automotive field makes this the perfect event for us to be present and answer any questions YOU have! You can find us in the vendors area with expert personnel and some demo models of our G4+ ECU range.

Gingerman sees the return of #GRIDLIFEDrift with a stacked lineup of pros, guest drivers and hobby-ist’s running the full course all weekend long. Link ECU sponsored professional drivers Justin Pawlak, Jeff Jones, George Kiriakopoulos and Corey Hosford will be out there shredding tires and engaging with fans.

In addition, debuting this year, is the first ever TrackBattle series. This is a new Time Attack format pitting the top drivers and machines in a head-to-head battle for speed supremacy with two drivers on track together at the same time. Each driver will do a lead and chase run, similar to that in drifting. The objective here is not to get sideways however, but to set the fastest lap of the weekend.

Additionally, the GridLife beginner friendly HPDE program with track time for all drivers from first timers to old timers.

Of course, AFTERGRID music festival is a major highlight of the weekend. Music both days with more stages, more genres, and more good times all day and into the night – what more could you want?!

Link ECU E-throttle Module

Didn’t think you would ever convert to drive-by-wire, but now reconsidering?

Link Engine Management now has the solution for converting your cable throttle to a drive by wire configuration with our NEW E-throttle module!

Cable throttles are now being replaced by electronic versions which provide finer control and allow connectivity to other parts of the engine management system. Electronic throttles are, in general, more reliable than cable systems without the possibility of the throttle jamming, stretching or breaking.
The Link ECU E-throttle module can be used with the G4+ Storm and Kurofune ECU’s to enable drive-by-wire. It can also be used with our PlugIn’s and older G4 ECU’s.
The E-throttle module kit comes with the Ethrottle module and an eight-pin deutsch connector.

        

 

To switch your car from cable throttle to fly-by-wire, contact a Link ECU dealer today: www.linkecu.com/dealer-network

Formula Drift ‘The Wall’

At just the half-way point of the season, 2018 is shaping up to be on of the most competitive in Formula Drift’s 14 year history. As the championship headed to New Jersey for Round 4 this past weekend, the banked oval of of Wall Stadium Speedway set the stage for another epic round of Pro class battles.

A wet practise day on Thursday halted progress of many teams, but gave others the chance to work on cars after a short turn around from Formula Drift Road Atlanta Round 3 to NJ Round 4.

Friday Qualifying has held in hot, humid conditions and saw a lot of high scores in the 90’s awarded by the judges. Most of the usual suspects including James Deane, Federic Asabo, Justin Pawlak and Forest Wang all looked in good form. In the end, it was Link ECU supported ‘JTP’ Justin Pawlak and his Ford Coyote who managed to claim pole position!

This gave Justin a bye into the Top 16, and then a win into the Top 8 where he faced Chris Forsberg. After a OMT, the Falken Coyote came out on top and went on to the Final Four.

JTP’s car was running on song all weekend and he eventually climbed onto the podium in 3rd position! James Deane and his 2JZ (powered by a Link ECU Thunder) took out the top spot.

 

Another Link Engine Management sponsored driver, Jeff Jones, has been improving from strength to strength this season in his Nissan 370Z. After installing a G4+ Thunder at the beginning of this year, Jeff has been making use of the additional control and reliability he now has from his car. Adjusting idle RPM, changing fuel / ignition timing and using data logging are all features he has been making use of with Link ECU software PC Link. Jeff put in many great runs throughout the weekend but lost his Top 32 battle to Matt Feild. Nevertheless, it was great experience for Jones as Feild went on to take 2nd overall.

 

Deane Kearney didn’t have such luck in NJ. Car troubles mean’t his Viper was out of action after Thursday and was left competing in the borrowed car of Forest Wang for the remainder of the weekend. Despite a couple a wall knocks, the Irishman ended up putting down some solid runs and still had a smile on his face.

We are now looking forward to Round 5 in Washington, and then Round 6 in Saint Louis which will also host the Link ECU PRO2 Category!

See ya’ll there in the vendor area!
