Circle Track Digital Soft-Touch HEI Rev Limiter

8727CTV1 In an attempt to keep costs down and racing close, many dirt track racing sanctioning bodies across the country institute a mandatory rpm limit in several classes. MSD has been in close contact with many tracks over the years and thanks to their input, as well as that of the racers, we are excited to introduce an rpm limiter designed for the Saturday night racer!

The new MSD Digital Soft-Touch HEI Rev Limiter is designed to plug into nearly any HEI distributor and produces an accurate, smooth rev limiting action. The rpm limit is adjustable from 3,000 – 9,900 rpm via two rotary dials with an easy-to-view LED to display the value. A unique feature of the this Limiter is its ability to record the highest rpm reached during a race. This is useful information for the race team, as well as tech officials. Also, if the Limiter loses any connection or is manipulated during a race a fault code will be displayed.
The Limiter is encased in epoxy for protection against the abuse of dirt track racing. For use with GM style HEI distributors on V8 engines only.

Power Grid 3-Stage Delay Timer Now Available

7760By working with racers and listening to their needs for improved control over their power adders and accessories, MSD Performance is pleased to release the Power Grid 3-Stage Delay Timer. The 3-Stage Delay Timer, PN 7760, provides Power Grid users the ability to finely control the activation of three independent circuits via relay, such as a nitrous solenoid or an air shifter. Each stage can be programmed to turn on and off based on the time after the launch or through engine rpm or both. The Delay Timer easily connects to the communication network of the Power Grid and the settings are programmed through the MSD View software platform alongside all of the other Power Grid programming functions. Both rpm and time can be set with an on target and off target allowing you to control how long a circuit is activated as well.  Thanks to the advanced data acquisition features of the Power Grid, all of the settings and values that you set with 3-Stage Delay Timer can be reviewed after each run to assist in tuning the program for the next run.
