Waimate 50 success for Link ECU

Link ECU powered cars blasted to the top spots this past weekend in the small New Zealand town of Waimate, near Timaru. The Waimate 50 is an inaugural event, massively growing in popularity year upon year. The tight street circuit being set-up throughout the town centre is certainly something unique! Playing home to drift cars, tin tops, rally cars and even motorcycles for the weekend, the 2018 edition of the event did not disappoint.

Congratulations to the following cars for their great sucess, powered by Link ECU.

Josh Mitchell took the overall win in the Top 10 shootout in his CroweSport Subaru WRX:

Josh’s ’97 WRX Type-R Coupe is running a CroweSport 2.5L with a Garrett GT30, putting out around 400hp. It also has a KAPS R4 sequential gearbox. Powered by a #LinkECU G4+ Plug-in ECU, the car makes use of many features including oil/fuel pressure, oil temp, launch control, flat shift, wheel speed and more.

 

Andy Duffin in his triple rotor RX7 came away with some great results for his first time at competing at the event:

Congrats to Andy for finishing firstt in the rear wheel drive class street sprint, fourth quickest overall and winner of the first invitational race.

 

Andy’s GT Savanna RX3 was also in action durng the day, piolted by Tauranga’s infamous rotary tuners Green Brothers Racing:

Waimate 50 Rx3

Huge thanks to Andy Duffin for letting us thrash his GT Savanna Rx3 at Waimate 50. It's just too much fun to drive – we had a ball! Once again, thanks to Rob and his team for giving us the opportunity to experience a proper street sprint, something that doesnt exist in our part of the country.

Finally, it was good to see many of the D1NZ drift pilots back in action after the winter break. Congratulations to Troy Jenkins for taking his 2JZ powered Toyota 86 to second place on the podium, followed by Ben Wilkinson and Adam Davies. Second member of the Team Jenkins Motorsport, Ben, was in action having his first drive in the new car.

The boys certainly looked the part and put on a HUGE show for the crowd! We’re sure the roundabout skids will be a lasting hit for years to come. See you there in 2019!

Link dominates at final round of BDC

It was a weekend of wins once again for Link ECU at the final round of the 2018 British Drift Championship.

16-year-old Pro-Am driver Ryan Caldwell in his Nissan S15, which runs a G4+ Xtreme, was the first to take home the silverware, after obliterating the competition on the circuit and taking the win in his class. As a result, he was the overall 2018 Pro-Am runner up.

In the same class, Lee Scott and his BMW E46, powered by an RB25 and using a Link G4+ Xtreme, was the Pro-Am champion, even though at the strat of the year he had never intended to complete the BDC season!

As winner of the Pro-Am round, Caldwell could progress through to the following day’s Pro competition. As the battles wore on, he proved that he is as good as the drivers in the top class, going on to take 3rd place on the podium.

Pro driver Duane McKeever, who runs a G4+ Fury in his Nissan 180sx, confirmed his status as one of the world’s best drifters, after taking the 2018 Pro championship. Having won 5 out of the 6 rounds, his clean sweep was thwarted in the final battle of the weekend, after he was outdriven by valiant opponent Aurimas Vaskelis.

Congratulations to all of you, everyone at Link ECU is very proud!

Ever wondered what role a Link ECU can play on carbuereted engines?

An aftermarket ECU can be the perfect adjustment tool for older engines, where tuning methods ‘of the time’ revolved around the painstaking process of trial and error. Utilising modern Link G4 Atom ECU‘s, Lindsay Pinker in the Hawkes Bay of New Zealand, has been tuning carbuereted racing motorcyles for over 15 years. The data logging capabilities of a Link ECU allows tuners like Lindsay to revise data such as RPM, oil pressure and cylindar temperature, and make corresponding changes to the timing and fuel mixture. This ensures the engine will be performing at its best for the next practise or race session out on track. Link ECU’s also manage ignition timing and allow for changes to this to be made on the fly. 

Lindsay’s latest build is this 1979 CB750F based Pre-1982 Racer, aimed to be raced at the Phillip Island International Classic Festival in February 2019.

 

 

The motorcycle is loosely based on the bikes that the American Honda Team team ran in the “AMA” Superbike Series from 1979 – 1983. Freddie Spencer was the stand out rider on these bikes.

Lindsay says: “The point here is that the Atom is as much a tuning tool as it is used for data logging here for our mixture, timing, throttle position, rpm, oil pressure, oil temperature, and barrel base temperature. It manages ignition coil control control through two wasted spark standard Honda Modern Motorcycle coils. These are triggered through a Link Igniter Module. With a cam sensor the G4 Atom can run four individual coils. This gives individual cylinder timing  where at present I am running the cylinders with independent timing to 1 & 4 and 2 & 3 as pairs.”

“The throttle position sensor driving 3D ignition timing is the huge plus, providing a fully programmable ignition. There is no other factor like 3D ignition timing which can take an engine of an older generation and give it modern reliable management. 3D ignition timing brings life to motors that people would never have imagined, while still making use of the original carburetors. Albeit, the carburetors can now be tuned a lot more accurately with data logging as well. It’s a win/win!”

 

 

Specifications of this bike include:

– Series 1 G4 Atom / mounted in a protected housing at the of the bike/away from all other electronics.

– Igniter Module mounted on the inner rear guard behind the oil breather tank.

–    Throttle Position Sensor mounted on Custom made boss/throttle shaft extended to turn the throttle position sensor/for 3D igniton                                 timing.                                                    

–    Oxygen Sensor for Data Logging/carburetors.

–    Temperature sensor at the rear base of the barrels/for Data Logging.

–     Temperature sensor in the sump for data logging.

–     Quick shifter controlled by Link Computer.

–     A Vince and Hyde supplied crankshaft trigger wheel and timing disc.

–     Vince and Hyde supplied crankcase modification for crank sensor fitting.

–     & many more modifications which have taken place over the past thirty years.
