Whats currently on the high priority list?
Just so we can have some idea of what to look forward too.

Just being pedantic - why would you want WOT downshifts........surely you'd just hit the limiter?

Probably only reason for a WOT downshift...is because you somehow ended up in the wrong gear in the first place ? It would be an unusual scenario though.

Correct. I've had a few requests for this now.
It's not as unusual as you'd think. I've seen some logs where drivers are consistently able to try to down shift less than 50rpm too soon, and don't realise they haven't shifted down.
It's usually on multiple downshifts though, so downshifting 3 instead of 4 times, and trying to leave the chicane a gear too high. Rather than lift, press the clutch, downshift, carry on, just pull the paddle.

Any plans for CAN based lambda? Ie for the likes of either motec or Link lambda CAN controllers?

https://www.motec.com.au/lambda-current ... directory/

http://dealers.linkecu.com/can-lambda

Would free up an analog input, more accurate, and better sensor diagnostics.

Definitely, on the enhancements list.

Both their CAN lambda units are ridiculously expensive though.

And the Link unit requires data to be sent to the device before it will power the sensor etc and start sending data back. ie it will not operate if the engine is not running.

But yes, lambda onboard, or via serial/CAN properly rather than an analogue input is a better option.

Are there any cheaper ones? The link one is around $500nzd, a innovate or other similar analog one is around $300.

Is that not half the point, ie, not run the lambda probe before engine start to prevent sensor damage? (especially on cold starts etc, condensation in exhaust)

I'm not saying there are cheaper ones...I'm saying both of those are expensive for a wideband, more so the Motec although that's par for the course.

And the point is...it wont be a simple matter if getting the CAN wideband and the DTA receiving the data, the DTA will actually need to be able to send and receive.
