800whp si traction control??????

Si k20/24 recently got tuned on pump gas makes little bit over 530whp on 8psi and is totaly useless in every gear just breaks loose and hits redline and in april when track opens up for us i will be retuning it on c16 for 800whp so my question is will the hondata traction control help me when i drive on the streets or is it good to a certain power limit

Good question, willing to trade engines/cars if you are unhappy with it though

You need to utilize both boost by gear and traction control to hit your target of getting the car to actually grip.

It works by cutting ignition and allowing a certain percentage of slip. With enough traction built into your setup, it is going to help you regardless.

What did you expect with 500HP on fwd without the proper setup. Trac control plus tires will eliminate most of the spinning.

Hondata's traction control isn't like a factory system, it uses the ABS lines to pull ignition. A typical traction control system also uses the same sensors but rather than pulling ignition it pumps the ABS system to reduce wheel spin to that particular wheel. This is apples to oranges honestly.
