No matter if you race at a professional level or a weekend racer, having control over the engine is key.

One of our clients races the Mini above in autocross events.

The client recently had the motor built and a supercharger added. Along with those upgrades, this little box was added.

A ViPEC ecu was added to give the tuner the ability to better control the engine and take full advantage of the upgrades. The ViPEC offers features that the previous tuning solution did not.

The client recently took the Mini to a local autocross event and was very impressed with the new setup. He said it was hard to keep the tires from spinning with all the power.
