Traction control...

Hello gents,

I've done a search but not turning up too much, so a question for you.

Do any of you run TC for trackdays or racing? If so what make and how are you finding it?

Was it relatively easy to set up etc? How intrusive is it?

Thanks in advance guys

Assuming good race rubber is in play and your geometry is correct, with the stock flywheel the RC Piggy One doesn't really spin up that much except at really high lean angles in mostly the slower corners which kinda negates the need for TC on this bike as you really aren't going to make up time in those scenarios (slow in the slow stuff, fast in the fast and all that). You know as well as I do that it won't spin it up at higher speeds as it just doesn't have that kind of hp/tq numbers to work with.

With a lightened flywheel I could clearly see TC being an advantage as I myself have had problems with traction problems as the bike spun up so much quicker on exit. The trick there of course is balancing the two as everything is a compromise. Doesn't do you much good to get the quicker spin-up if you have to spend money on TC control just to slow down the spin-up and end up with the same result as if you hadn't lightened the flywheel...
