The Hondata Traction Control for your s300, KPro or FlashPro. Hondata Traction Control works by monitoring the ABS wheel speed sensors and reducing engine output when excessive wheel-spin is detected. A dash mountable switch allows the selection of different target slip rates, and software allows the system to be tuned for your specific vehicle setup.

“After installation of Hondata's new traction control in my 2007 Civic Type R FN2 my 0-60 times improved by 1.5 secs.″ CPL Racing UK.
“My dry lap times improved by two seconds and my wet lap times by 4 seconds.″ Diogo Oliveira, 2007 Civic Si, Sao Paulo Brazil.
Simply put, the Traction Control commands the ECU to reduce power when the driven wheels are going faster than the un-driven wheels. On-the-fly adjustment of the target slip rate can be performed using a dash mounted switch.
If you have ABS, then the ABS sensors can be utilized. If your vehicle does not have ABS but is a model which supports ABS, then only the wheel speed sensors need to be installed. If you don't have ABS and no factory vehicle wheel speed sensors, then you will need to add your own ABS wheel speed sensors.
No, it works very well on street cars.
Yes. The ABS ring typically gives 50 pulses per wheel revolution. The vehicle speed sensor on an 02 Acura RSX for example gives around 4 pulses per wheel revolution, which reduces the accuracy of your speed determination. In addition, the VSS cannot be used to determine if the car is cornering.
Yes, setting up for different sized tires is very easy.
Yes, the principle behind the wheel slip calculation is exactly the same for front and rear wheel drive.
The Traction Control module has high impedance capacitively coupled wheel speed inputs which do not alter the signal to the ABS computer. However, if the ABS error light illuminates, or the ABS operation changes in any way, the vehicle should not be driven until the issue is identified and fixed.
Only the wheel speed sensors.
Traction control will work with just one front and one rear speed sensor, but cornering slip compensation cannot be calculated unless you have two sensors on the un-driven wheels.
Yes, tie the negative side of the wheel speed sensor input to ground.
Yes, just set the speed determination method of that axle to 'fastest wheel'.
