Traction Controller

What is it?

Our very first OBD tool was the ABS/TC off dongle. An OBD dongle with which one could disable the ABS system and thus the traction control and all other “nannies” by switching to Dynamic via the DNA button. But now the time has come for the evolution version of the ABS/TC off dongle, the Traction Controller.

What can it do?

The Traction Controller also essentially turns off the ABS system. But with exra features like a “burnout mode” and a “Launch assist” which is linked to a 0-100 km/h (or 60 mph) and a 0 to 400 meter (or 1/4 mile) acceleration time measurement.
For Q4 versions there is the possibility to switch off the front-wheel drive so that you can fully enjoy a 100% rear-wheel drive. With or without Nannies enabled.

The operation and communication

For pre-MY2020 models the operation is via the MENU button and the cruise control buttons “RES”/toggle switch on the steering wheel.

For MY2020 models there is no RES button. Instead we use the “Options” button on the right or the rotary knob. For some functions the “Lane Assist” button is used.

The Performance Logger communicates via the information line on the TFT display between the RPM meter and speedometer.

Supports both 3.5 and 7.0 inch TFT screen

Both 3.5 and 7.0 inch TFT screens are supported. The 3.5 TFT has less characters on the information line so the texts to display are different between the 3.5 and 7.0 inch TFT screen version.

Only for Q4 versions, AWD switch off or AWD torque monitoring

For Q4 versions, the driven torque can be read from the front axle. But if you want to experience the Q4 as a 100% rear wheel drive car, the front wheel drive can be switched off. This also means that burnouts can be performed.

Function for each model

Is there a SGW firewall present?

From production month February 2018 all Giulia’s and Stelvio’s are equipped with the SGW firewall

When a SGW firewall is present, the Performance Logger will not work. In that case our SGW bridge can be installed.

Squadra Tuning OBD tool update app

With the help of this on-line app one can program the Performance Logger with a different type of  software. That can be very useful. Such as:

  • a different type of Giulia or Stelvio is purchased.
  • one buys a used Performance Logger but the exact type does not match.
  • when one has purchased an ESC v2 and wants to upgrade it to a Performance Logger.
  • if there is a bug in the software.

Such an adjustment of the software MUST always be in consultation with us. We have to link the required software version to the serial number in question. Depending on the desire, certain costs may be associated with this.
