Nutron Drift devICE



337097
The Ford Focus RS Mk3 is a car that delivers an unforgettable driving experience, ranging from quick cornering during daily driving, through the pursuit of time on the tracks, and ending with spectacular slides, U-turns and drifts. However, for many users even such a high charge of emotion could be even higher.

It is precisely for this group, Nutron Pro Moto with the considerable help of several enthusiasts, have called to life a product that is absolutely #1 in the category of smile generators for users of the 3rd generation Focus RS. Ladies and Gents, it is with immense pride we present Nutron Drift devICE – a device that changes the rules of the game and makes your car an even better machine for punching extremely high levels of fun.

The Drift devICE is a small OBD2 dongle which in a spectacular way changes the operation of the handbrake. From now on, just minimal pull up of hand brake, without the need for clutching, results in rapid rear drive unit disengaging and rear wheels breaking by the power of ABS pump, not your muscles. The effect is outstanding , and the effectiveness of absolute rear braking. From now on, the quick, non-demanding force, the undercutting of the car that has been reserved for hydraulic handbrake solutions so far, can be experienced in the RS Mk3 Focus. No need to install an expensive aftermarket hydraulic brake. With the Drift devICE, you can use the original handbrake levelr without voiding the warranty on the car.

Unlike the competition, the Drift devICE works in any driving mode (Normal /Sport/Track/Drift) and does not require a special OBD2 drift stick. For security reasons and to avoid accidental activation, the device only works after fully deactivating the ESC system. For complete convenience and maximizing sensations, we encourage you to use the device together with the Nutron Handbrake Mod which can be purchased bundled with a Drift devICE or you can buy it on a later time.


CONTENTS:
  • Nutron Drift devICE,
  • voucher to the free/required reprogramming of the car ECU (*).
SAFETY ISSUES

The device is not intended for use on roads and in public areas. Connect the device to the OBD2 port only on closed, non-public locations designed and suitable for the use of the handbrake. If you return to the public road or stop driving, always disconnect device from the OBD2 port. The use of the handbrake during driving involves an unpredictable change in the behaviour of the car for inexperienced drivers.

(*) Free car programming service has to be performed by authorized tuner. Programming includes a completely different area of the car ECU than the popular chip tuning implemented individually by a tuner or a Cobb type devices. The use of these solutions before or after "our" programming has no effect whatsoever on their operation.

Definitely interested on who authorized tuners will be around the west coast (Vancouver Canada). For ice racing and rallycross this would be extremely useful to have in all four drive modes, not just drift mode like the competition

Any chance for the authorized tuner list to be released earlier?

I’d like to get one myself but wont spend that amount of money before I know for sure I dont have to drive 6 hours to have the thing programmed!

Would be nice to have it installed and programmed to the car before Jan.18th which is winter rally school day for me! I guess the instructors could teach me a few techniques that could make use of that thing!

This is the main reason I'm still interested in this thing even though I already have the FP drift stick. On the last rallycross I did, I found the drift stick very usable for rotating the car around the one or two tight corners/hairpins he had on the course, but having it on drift mode meant that I would immediately lose a ton of time going sideways instead of exiting cleanly.

This is absolutely awesome if it indeed functions as promised . I want to thank you for offering one of the better mods to date from anyone in anything aftermarket I’ve seen so far. Nice work.

Any chance offering up a no-warranty flash-it-yourself option for those who don’t live anywhere near an authorized tuner? Very interested.

Also very interested and willing to buy but I’m not willing to drive hours to get it programmed. That’s a huge dagger.
