The LNC-TC1 or Torque Cut Module is designed to provide a momentary torque cut on GM LS based engines using the OEM style ignition systems. This momentary torque cut is usually needed when using dog-engagement or other clutchless shift type transmissions. The LNC-TC1 also has an RPM limiter feature that can be used to provide a reliable and fast acting spark based individual cylinder RPM limiter. This RPM limiter can function as a traditional engine RPM limiter or it can function as a 2-step or launch controller in order to provide consistent launch RPM off the line in drag racing and other standing start racing applications.
The RPM limiter and the torque cut functions of the LNC-TC1 act by disabling spark to individual cylinders so the torque cut and 2-Step/Launch Control functions are not meant for use on the street or for use on cars equipped with catalytic converters. The torque cut and 2-Step/ Launch Control functions of the LNC-TC1 are only for use at the race track on race vehicles not equipped with catalysts. Failure to follow these precautions will result in premature catalyst failure.
LNC-TC1 Specifications :
