Test of Davis Technologies Traction Control On Dirt Late Model
at Smokey Mountain Speedway
Dirt Late Model Magazine invited us to test our traction control system on a
dirt late model car. We jumped at the chance!
Bob Applegate of Dirt Late Model Magazine
organized the test. We met car owner Larry Garner of Blount
Motorsports and Crew Chief David Bryant at Smokey Mountain Speedway.
Driving duties were handled by slick track expert Billy Ogle, Jr.
After installing a
GPS system for lap times, a dual camera system, as well as a full RacePak
data system, we ran the track in and started the test. After about 30
laps of getting the car set up, we did a 10 lap run with traction control.
We stopped the car on the track and removed the TC unit and ran another 10
laps. Finally, we stopped on the track again and replaced the TC and
ran a few more laps.
Here are the lap time results, as well as a
video of the test, and the full article from the December 2012 Issue of Dirt
Late Model Magazine, who organized and oversaw the test.
