OT but do not understand...

Recommended Posts

Watching one of the drag racing shows (1/8 mile now) and curious about something: they all have these computers to adjust the power of the engines at different stages to avoid going up in smoke and having to pedal it.

 

Why don't they just use a fly-by-wire throttle like my 01 Merc with WSSs and let the computer manage any wheelspin ? (e.g. traction control) YWTK.

Makes you wonder why they even need a driver.........seems like they are just full size slot cars.

Yes they could use lane correction. Makes you think the whole thing is scripted like westling.
