The RBTS Racing service offering centres around their Dastek AWD (all-wheel drive) chassis dynamometer (dyno), affectionately nicknamed Darryl. The dyno allows the tuner to measure the power output of your vehicle’s engine (in kW) so they can understand if your engine is performing optimally. Utilising specialist tools, the tuner gathers data relating to the functioning of the engine. That data is then assessed and interpreted. The tuner then makes changes to relevant calibrations (in the ECU) to improve the engines performance (or in some cases fuel efficiency).
Rest assured that with over 27 years’ experience, RBTS owner and head tuner, Ross McKay knows how to push the limits whilst maintaining a level of safety for the engine (and thus preventing engine damage or failure). His background in motor mechanics and performance engine building allows him to understand much more than just the tune and affords him the ability to make recommendations on what works and doesn’t work in real world applications.
ECU REMAPPING / FLASHING
In many cases and using specific tools, it is possible to remap or flash a vehicles ECU with new software that includes updated parameters (such as boost levels, fuelling and timing) that will enhance the vehicles performance.
The RBTS team’s extensive knowledge of ECU’s and tuning affords them the ability to troubleshoot and diagnose ECU and tuning related issues.
It has become evident that faulty or dirty injectors are often the cause of poor performance. For this reason, RBTS now have the ability to test and service petrol injectors in-house.
