Technical Article: Optimal parameterization of an engine controller for drag racing

Riding on the Razor’s Edge

In calibrating engine controllers for production vehicles, electronic developers typically work with engine test stands and numerous test drives over different route scenarios. However, no such tools are available for special engine controllers used for drag racing. Using Vector's CANape measurement and calibration tool enables an engine controller to be calibrated for top performance without using a test stand while staying within a tight budget even under the continual risk of destroying the engine after just a few test runs.
