So the RLTC is a separate box that need to be wired in? I'm sure it is quite good, but the fact that I want an ECU and traction control is making me lean towards a proEFI.

TC will not make you into a racecar driver, it still takes skill to keep it straight

Indeed.

You are assuming the traction control played a role in his crashes. Traction control as discussed in this thread assists the driver in getting the most out of the car. It is not a safety nanny that prevents accidents, although it can do that in the hands of a skillful driver. My position regarding the MoTec traction control is the same as it is relative to the ProEFI. No proof exists that it is better than the RLTC, nor is there proof, to my knowledge, that the RLTC is superior to the ProEFI or the MoTec (I believe the RLTC is superior because of its pedigree and how it was developed, but I have no proof of that). Having observed the effectiveness of the ProEFI many times when personally watching Saad Saad run a bunch of 8-second quarter miles, I am quite impressed. That said, the vast majority of RLTC guys are road racers and I am just as impressed with the RLTC in this type of racing as I am with the ProEFI in drag racing. That's why independent third party proof is needed before someone can say unequivocally that one system is better than another. q8 Supra, I am not sure anyone can help you with your decision. It seems as though you are more into drag racing. If this is the case, it would be hard to argue against the ProEFI based upon what I have personally observed. Good luck with your decision.

Ken.

The ProEFI was installed after the crash to prevent it from happening again!

Look at the dates of the videos. The ProEFi was installed in Oct of 2010.

As stated many times Proefi has a lot of nice features for the money that most others dont have. Is it the best? I dont know but I would buy one ten times over again and I can say this knowing friends who have AEM, xfi, Big stuff 3, Old school gen 6 dfi,megasquirt, etc. I like mine and have converted quite a few. As the old saying goes dont knock it till u try it.
