Race Logic Traction Control HELP!

This question is for the guys actually using the TC system. On the 3rd gen did you hook up the system as the sheet from the company says by interupting the injectors and cutting fuel? Or did you use the alternative method and cut spark?

I am concerned about cutting fuel.

Thanks

PM Peter(rice racing) he has the set-up. I would opt for Spark cut, but If I remember there is a downside to this. I have fuel cut on my Supra, but that is alot safer than the venerable Rotary

I haven't done an install, and I don't run one.. but I did a bunch of research a while ago/talked to some people.. and the consensus was that the total fuel cut caused by the TC wasn't going to cause a lean burn.. just a wasted spark into (almost) open air.

Spark cut sucks/can be cool because you're dumping a complete load of fuel out your exhaust.. great if you want to run some sort of anti-lag spooling setup; shitty if you want your turbos to survive for any extended period.

Contact Race Logic.. you're not the first person to run their setup on a rotary.

I remember reading that someone had theirs setup to do both spark and fuel cut. Spark only and you still dump fuel into the combustion chamber...
