    They make mufflers like this, but if you buy one make sure you weld the rims because they tend to come loose!

  • pballer2005

    So since this engine kinda relies on its own momentum to maintain boost and thus maintain power, would a full spark cut and wheel speed traction control system not be appropriate? I’ve seen stuff where it basically just cuts spark to maintain say no more than 10% wheel slip, but only on larger displacement engines that aren’t solely relying on the forced induction to make all their power.

    Did you put a spool in that 8.8 if not the stock diff will be your issue my foxbody has a stock diff on drag slicks my car will push hard left the diff opens up and sends all the power to the right rear pushing the car hard left over 700hp you need a spool 400-700 hp a gear style lsd will work you NEED A SPOOL

    I think the solution for the present is to get a nice new and clean gas tank.

  • Josh Man

    I wish there was a sensor that could read gasoline quality, because whenever my tank gets down to half full the combination is not as good. It probably needs more fuel when at that point.

    Everyone should be required to take a calculus and physics class at minimum! Speaking as an electrical engineer, the math always works. It's exciting how electricity, mechanics, physics, nature, etc. all derive from the same basic equations even though they are very different from each other. Ok, nerd rant over.......

  • Aldude

    If you have accurate wheel slip data, you don't actually want to aim for 0% wheel slip (aka slip ratio). Each car is different, but aiming for 10% is usually a good target. Why? Because complicated physics interactions.

    Technically you can make, at best, a guess on where you are/how far you traveled based solely on accelerometer data. Lots of error integrating twice. Not relevant to what you are trying to do. Just wanted to keep the kids here from trying to make a dead reckoning bot based solely on accelerometer data. It doesn't work very well.

    and this is why a drive by wire throttle is GREAT for traction control on high hp builds

    Traction control is cool, but I would start with suspension and then call Cleetus. They do boost by time(like all dragracers) and works well.

    is it possible he detunes the car more than it needs to rather than fixing the suspension first?

  • krusher74

    You should be maximizing the suspension set up first.

  • Deadshilz

    Ok little freaky. I was just literally thinking of the hooningan race with the 4rotor and thinking of the hood flying up in the middle of the race and thinking of maybe rob should 3d print a hood so it doesn't cripple. Then not 5 seconds after thinking that he shows the hood. Just a lil freaky, lol.

  • titanary68

    Are you a good driver? I don’t really know, you seem to be better than some and worse than others, however as a driver you aren’t anywhere near the level of the 2 men you had to face on This Vs. That. But I highly doubt that had fuckall to do with the results. You had a car that could beat TP, the Hoonicorn race, I honestly wanted you to win but ultimately I believe the losing factor is neither of your cars in those races were anywhere close to as sorted out as the cars you were racing. I do respect that you knew this and still showed up, that’s called being a man of your word and it’s admirable. I personally think you have too many irons in the fire, fully finish one car before you fuck with the other. I’m not a rotary fan by any means but I do know you will eventually be fast AF once you get your shit together but as a public figure people don’t give you the credit or grace you truly deserve. I want to see you kicking the shit out of big names on the track. I want to see your rotary C8 mop the 1/4 mile with Emilia’s C8. I think people can’t understand what it is you are truly trying to do here and I wish you the best of luck

    • Rob Dahm

      Well said. Yeah I know the 4 rotor would win against Travis. I didn’t want to bring it because it’s halfway through body work. I wanted the challenger of the 3 rotor. But it was not as drivable as I assumed. I didn’t want to be reckless and take it on the street so that was my first change to shake it down. Bad move.

    You know what this reminds me of? It's like what Cosworth did when building their V12 engine for the Valkyrie, design the best possible 3 cylinder engine and then scale it up to 12. Rob is building the best 3 rotor he possibly can so that the process of designing, building and tuning the 6 rotor goes super smoothly. As an extra bonus, we won't have to wait 4 years : D

    Hear me out a minute, but what if you built a mount to hold the laptop so it sits where you can see it and it stays put? Like to the right of the center console at about dash height, its easy to glance at without fully taking your attention off the road in front of you.

    Rob, you may want to use a clutch pedal switch to temporarily disable the traction control during shifting and when letting out the clutch while launching.

    Rob fix your suspension setup. 3rotor doesn't squad(to stiff or weird angel somewhere?) so it will burn robber in any gear at any speed.

    Still feel bad that there was plotting against you in the earlier days by everyone (pro and non pro) that was jealous about the 4 rotor:/ I hate the community for that

  • BadBeaver

    So its not dumping some boost while ignition cut is happening? Even with 100% open wastegate its still boost creeping up to 9 psi!? You have the electronic wastegate, right? I wonder if they are going to make an electronic blow off/compressor bypass valve...that could allow a whole new crazy dimension to tuning turbo cars...

    Rob finally gets traction control, fully tuned, ready to go... then switches out old dry tires for new sticky rubber and ends up peeling his face off with the launch

  • Rhysk94

    Love your vids, but there are many things you're wrong on haha 2-step or ignition cut is no where near antilag or anything like it one bit But each to their own, it makes sense to you, its your car and your tune so thats alp that matters 👌
