Traction Control

Post  79Puller on July 23rd 2014, 2:05 pm

I hear alot about this, it is even to be used in a few pulling trucks around my area . Can someone explain how it works ( timing ) and what is it really called and who makes it. Thanks

I wouldn't think traction control would be a good idea in a pulling deal.

Yeah. I don't know much about it but "wheel speed" seems to be a pretty big deal to those guys.

Traction is still the name of the game even in pulling competitions. Weight distribution, tires, and leverage all come into play also, but you have to manage traction to get the most out of every pull.

True,but I haven't watched a good pulling truck that wasn't spinning the tires the distance of the pull.

You dont have to set up the traction control to stop spinning. You can set a predefined driveshaft rate which could be spinning the tires but not let it climb above a predefined rate.
