MSD Power Grid Approved For Use In NHRA Pro Stock

MSD Power Grid Approved For Use In NHRA Pro Stock

The MSD Power Grid has been a game changer since hitting the market a while back. It puts an awesome amount of information and tuning ability right at the fingertips of the user. We’ve seen Power Grids in everything from sportsman bracket cars to Pro Mods and everything in between. Some of our pals with serious street cars, especially those that love to plug into their motors and play with parameters use them, too. It is a great system and MSD has announced that the NHRA has given the green light for the MSD Power Grid to be used in the ultra-competitive world of Pro Stock. We’re thinking that the phones have been ringing like crazy in El Paso with this word hitting the airwaves.

Here’s the full release from MSD –

    traction control in pro stock? Surely that can’t be good for the few budget teams left, or am I looking at this all wrong?

    traction control is an add on for the grid. yea you can take timing away at the hit and everything but it will only do what you tell it to. it doesnt have an input to add or remove timing on the fly
