Everybody who has been racing long enough knows that dropping the clutch is a sure way to be picking up a whole lot of parts at the starting line, not to mention making you inconsistent as a drag racer.
The Launch Control Device was originally developed by 9sec9 and after seeing its success, we decided to give it a try in our race car. We were extremely impressed with how well it worked! What the device did was relieve all the effort that was needed to properly slip the clutch. This allowed us to be a lot more consistent and make it through a number of events in one piece. The adjustability in the Device allowed us to adjust the amount of slip needed as conditions changed based on track and weather. This kept us consistent and more focused on driving the race car.
The built in line lock is used only when launching the car. It is bypassed when you are off the 2step button so there is no clutch slippage between gear changes.
A mighty vac must be used in order to bleed the device correctly. Bleed the LCD with the switch on and with the switch off multiple times until device it is free of air and functioning like a normal clutch when not energized.
Here is the video demonstrating how the Device works:
Combining the launch control device with one of the many clutches we offer is a sure fire way to ensure that you will be consistent and make it through every race day. We offer a variety of clutches. Some of which can be found here. If the clutch you are interested is not listed please don’t hesitate to contact us and we can check its availability.
