Thats interesting. So what is it connected to to do that? I thought this only affected the shock settings? So it has a built in timed launch controller like an MSD?
It does seem like it does but we haven't tried it out yet to confirm if this is a feature on the DiabloSport Controller.
Here are more details:
The Accel tab is where one sets the damping force modifier for each damper for the given throttle position.By utilizing throttle position the damper force can be increased or decreased as needed to allow the vehicle to put power down on corner exit or squat on straight line launches.It can also be utilized to predict higher speeds and increase damping as needed.This is a predictive strategy.
Accel Percentage Table
Just as with the G-Force Table, each box of the Accel Table contains four smaller boxes representing each corner of the vehicle.The percentage selected here represents the overall percentage of available damping force as set in the "Settings Edit Panel". The damper percentage is applied when the throttle is pressed, and remains applied for the amount of time selected in the “Decay” portion of the "Threshold Box". After this time has elapsed, the G-Force table is applied.
NOTE: The units on the graph are units of G-force, and can be easily compared to other values in other tabs and on the G-force table.
Settings Edit Panel
Each selectable box inside the G-Force Table contains four smaller boxes representing each corner of the vehicle. The cells are arranged to match each wheel; the top-left cell is the front-left wheel, the right-top cell is the front-right wheel, the bottom-left cell is the rear-left wheel, and the bottom-right cell is the rear-right wheel.The dampers are set in each box by changing the percentage in the Settings Edit Panel. The percentage selected here represents the overall percentage of available damping force as set in the “Shock Calibration Table”. Shades of grey directly correlate to the shock calibration table. Always remember to hit update to save in the cell you are editing.
The Threshold Box allows one to set the amount of time the damper force is applied once a set throttle position has been exceeded and the vehicle is over a set minimum speed.
• Decay - The Accel Percentage Table is applied before the G-Force Table is referenced. It is only active for the specified “decay” value.This is usually set to 1000. 1000 = 1.0sec; 0500 = 0.5sec; etc.
• TPS - This table is only active when you reach the set throttle position rate setting, and is calculated as a percentage of maximum throttle.
• Speed - This table is only active up to the target speed. It is typically set to 60mph.
Certain vehicles have a launch-assist mode (see firmware details for confirmation). This mode pre-sets the front and rear dampers for optimum grip on the launch.
To use launch assist:
• Come to a full stop.
• In a manual-trans car, push the clutch pedal in all the way. In an automatic car, press the brake pedal with moderate pressure.
• Give the throttle a hard blip -- just a quick stab, you don't even have to wait for the engine to respond.
The vehicle is now staged.
The "Launch Start" cell controls the shock settings at the start of launch. The "Launch End" cell controls the shock settings at the end of the launch process. The "Timer" in the Threshold box sets the time from when the vehicle starts to move until the "Launch End" cell is engaged. The value in the "Timer" box is in units of milliseconds, with a maximum value of 10 seconds (10000 milliseconds). A common value would be around 1000 milliseconds -- the time should be set to allow the vehicle to get through most of 60-foot distance at launch.
