Default Purple tag rack -coding in with NCS

Sorry to ask guys; Im having trouble locating instructions that definitively & clearly show how the code changes to make for the purple tag rack. Theres plenty on using NCS, I get that part, just want to get this right first time.

Default Re: Purple tag rack -coding in with NCS

Hey mate. I have done a bit of reading on this as I am doing a similar thing as I just bought a Purple Tag Rack.... from what I have read I don't think we can directly code the Purple Tag Rack for the M3 but we can code the settings for the ZCP/CSL rack ... which you can do as part of the M-Track Retrofit (if you have MK60)... info on that is here http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/showt...hlight=M-track

Anyway I hope someone can more directly help you and I will be paying close attention to the results of this discussion.

There's no position sensor on the steering column that I am aware of, so unless I've missed it, there's really no need to do any coding changes with the new steering rack. The car shouldn't behave any differently.

That said, with a quicker rack, it's easier to get the car crossed up, so I think most people like to use the ZCP/CSL setting which allows the car to get a little more crossed up before intervening. I think the car only notices a difference in the rate of change for the yaw sensor output. It's the same thing as turning the steering wheel faster with the normal rack.

Cheers, it looks like post #16 from Terrphantm states the config parameters I'll be needing. With the M Track mode as a bonus. I've not yet read all the pages yet though.

There is a steering angle sensor!
