Anyone using the innovate mtx-l in ijsba races?
I was checking to see if anyone raced with a AFR Gauge last year and passed the tech inspecton?
I am checking the current rules for IJSBA, and this is what I found under the stock rules, there is no mention of it in the Limited or Open rules,
6.8.2 The original electronic control unit may be modified or aftermarket so long as it does not offer any additional inputs or outputs than the original unit, and it must connect with the original connections. No additional sensors may be added (e.g., exhaust gas temperature, detonation sensors, etc.). Engine temperature sensors may be disabled
I mentioned to the race tech. that I can totally unplug the gauge, but the tech guy hasen't made a decision,

IMO, your not going to have time to be looking at a AFR gauge during a race, get it tuned up then remove it for racing.
Be carefull as well with the modification that will be done to your exhaust to fit the sensor, although it has no performance benfit it is different from stock and therefore could get you DQed....
What class are you racing in???

I am running in limited class,
I don't want to remove the gauge, and leave a big hole, I want to leave it in, but turn it off, or disable it,

A logical tech would see the sensor unplugged and not worry about it. I took my sensor completely out and plugged it though, didnt even want to deal with any hassel.

I sent pictures over to Scott at IJSBA and they are looking over it,
It is really not a temp sensor or a detonation sensor, it just measures air to fuel ratio, mine is installed in the exhaust, and of course I told him it doesn't connect to the ECU or change anything while it is hooked up,
Hopefully I will get the green light, I got the green light on using the ET-137 with spacer for the limited class earlier in the year,

Set your afrs in practice or before you go and set them safely and don't get greedy meaning dont tune for 12.3 tune to 12.0 at wot incase of error. Remove the sensor, plug the hole and remove the power from the lc1 and gauge. Simple! If gauge isn't working, you aren't using it IMO!

that is what I was thinking for worse case scenario, I was also thinking of unplugging the gauge and taking it out, and making a gauge hole plug for my glove box,
