Description

Total traction helps tune the most important performance system in your car—the driver.

This is more than just another G meter. Total Traction provides continuous feedback about how close your car is to loosing traction, (skidding). It blends braking, cornering, and acceleration forces, and compares them to the car’s measured performance limits, while correcting for hills, banked corners, dips, etc., ensuring consistent and accurate results.

Interested in improving lap times? A smooth and consistent driving technique is one of the first skills to master. Are you braking hard enough going into the turn? Is your trail braking transition smooth? Are you maintaining constant traction levels all the way through? Total Traction gives you the answers with intuitive, easy to understand feedback.

Learn to go faster by going slow. You can safely experience the driving techniques needed on the track at city speeds. Cut your traction setting to ¼ of its true value. You may be surprised at how difficult it is to maximize traction usage, even at reduced limits.

Want to learn to drive in the snow? Total Traction can simulate low traction environments, like rain, snow, or dirt, even when it's warm, dry, and sunny out, without the danger of skidding off the road or into an intersection.

You have probably already thought of the many other ways you can improve your driving skill with this tool. Tighten up that loose nut between the seat and the steering wheel, and buy Total Traction today!

Features:

• Sophisticated dual mode filter provides a smooth, accurate, and responsive graph without the jitter or sluggishness seen in many accelerometer-based applications.

• Audio alert adapted from the aviation industry, provides real time, continuously variable feedback without taking your eyes off the road.

• Predictive skidpad performance measurements of your car without the need for a skidpad, using formulas derived from real world measurements of over 125 cars.

• Dry, wet, or snow modes, allow you to quickly adapt to changing conditions that dramatically affect your car’s handling and traction performance.

• Built-in correction for banked turns, hills, crowns, and dips that leave other instruments crying for mommy.

• Two data displays to suit your style; a simplified graph that integrates all parameters into a single value, or a detailed view that graphs important variables and interactions.

• Device installation in any possible orientation, with calibration achieved in under 4 seconds.

5/5 stars

Great app!

:
In addition to doing exactly what it claims, this app gives a very satisfying user experience. Simple to use, straightforward graphics and sounds, quick and easy calibration. And it gave me some surprisingly feedback-- when I tried hard turns on the way home, it told me I was much closer to slipping than I thought. So I went to a parking lot where I could safely skid, and found it was correct. Turns out I've been underestimating the combined effect of breaking and cornering. Also very illuminating to use it in the rain..... I'd love to try this on a go-kart track!

4/5 stars

This is more like it

:
I recently tried out two other G meter apps that have audio feedback where the G value is read to you by voice, and I found the voice part highly annoying and so slow as to be useless. But these guys get it. the audio feedback is a beep that changes pitch and interval so you get quick response and sensitivity to the smallest changes. What I really like is that you can set the level the audio kicks in, so you don't hear anything until you exceed your setting. And you set your max Gs so it starts beeping like crazy right around the point where your car is starting to loose it. Very cool.

I keep it in my sun visor and forget it's there until things get squirrelly. I can listen to music on my iphone too and I don't even know the app is running until it starts beeping over the stereo when I take a corner too fast. Then it just shuts up again and I am back to listening to my tunes.

5/5 stars

Review of Total Traction app

:
It's a simple yet elegant tool to allow anyone, amateur or professional, to improve their driving skills. It teaches smoother braking and cornering and tells you instantly if you're maintaining optimum and constant traction. I've driven Formula Super Vee and Formula Dodge and can assure you that this tool will raise your skill level.
