MoTeC-Powered STICK SHIFT Supra GETS THAT SIX!

"My goal was always to run in the sevens…it never entered my mind sixes could be possible." - Joel Grannas

After coming tantalisingly close with a 7.00 second quarter mile earlier in the year - setting a new World Record at the time - Grannas Racing has now smashed through the 7 second barrier, becoming the first H-Pattern Stick Shift Car into the sixes with a remarkable 6.90 @ 194 MPH. And with an unexpected early shutdown on this history-making ET, there might even be lower numbers to come.

The "Orange Man Bad" Supra is powered by a MoTeC M150 ECU running custom Prospeed Autosports ProDrag firmware, expertly tuned by Chris Delgado. Other MoTeC goodies include a C127 Display Logger, PDM30 Power Distribution Module and CAN Keypad.

What a Difference MoTeC Makes!

With his affectionately named "Snot Rocket" Mustang now converted to MoTeC, Brett Lasala has a new PB and isn't looking back! At its first track outing with the new M150 ECU at TX2K20 earlier in the year, Jay from Real Street Performance drew on his expertise in both MoTeC and Mustangs to dial it in, a tenth at a time, reaching a new best quarter mile ET of 7.2 @ 188mph. Check it out on IGTV...

 GP Lite - a game changer for entry level engine management

New GP Lite

GP Lite is MoTeC's new entry level M1 engine management solution that's "lite" on price, but a heavyweight when it comes to functionality and world class quality.

The specially designed Lite firmware runs on M130 hardware and operates port injected engines with a range of complexities, from simple, naturally aspirated 4 cylinder variants to twin turbo charged V8s.

Like its big brothers in the M1 family, GP Lite provides numerous ancillary features, including driver switches (engine map, boost limit etc.), launch control and nitrous oxide injection. It also caters for many systems found on modified road vehicles, such as closed loop boost control, and provides two user-defined auxiliary outputs.

Want that racecar-style sound and light show from your exhaust? GP Lite can deliver! (Really, there's a new "Flames feature" in this Package, so get ready for pops and bangs that will draw a crowd!)

If you have an electronic throttle, or want variable cam control or knock control, GP Lite is not for you, but we have plenty of M1 Packages that are perfectly suited. And if you need CAN messaging for OE integration with vehicle systems (e.g. power steeering, ABS), we can help you out with an alternative M1 solution.

Integration with other MoTeC products is seamless, of course, so you can run a GP Lite ECU in combination with a Display Logger, Shift Light Module and many other devices. And because it comes with Level 1 Logging, you can analyse data using MoTeC's world leading i2 software.

Think M1 is out of your budget? Think again. This is racebred engineering at a true entry level price. Contact your local MoTeC dealer for the price in your region.
