ACD Tuning Flash Reprogram for Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution EVO 8/9
Our ACD Tune works by adjusting the torque split between the front and rear differentials. The delicate interplay between the differentials allows us to manipulate handling characteristics. We can alter the way the car responds on the street and track in specific scenarios, whether it’s braking on loose surfaces, turn-in response during cornering, and we can even modify the level of under-steer upon corner entry/exit.
From a technical perspective, the center differential is basically a limited slip differential with an adjustable preload. The preload is determined by the pressure of fluid in the center differential. By regulating solenoid current, our tune allows us to control the fluid pressure. As you increase fluid pressure the preload increases proportionately, as more torque is required to slip the differential, and vice versa.
“I recently had my Evo X AYC system tuned. I was in need of a more neutral feel on track since it tended to understeer. Once this ACD Flash was complete, there was a noticeable difference on the street but the true benefit was on track. In corners where I used to plow towards the outer edge, I am now able to keep a more controlled line and get on the throttle earlier. The overall neutral mechanical grip this tune provides made a huge difference. With this tune and a couple of other tweaks, my lap times greatly improved.”
