Q & A

What's in the Box

The programmable midget cd ignition is a complete electronic distributorless system consisting of a powerful capacitive discharge ignition control, a four tower high output coil pack and uses two non-magnetic pick-ups with a trigger wheel as a trigger source. This takes all of the mechanical variables out of the picture to produce exact ignition timing.
  • Plot two timing curves ranging from 800-15,000 RPM in 0.1° increments
  • Program a start retart to ease cranking
  • A battery monitor circuit shows real time battery voltage and a low voltage time percentage
  • Switch between two timing curves as track conditions change during a race

The midget ignition is supplied with the cd ignition control, two non-magnetic pick-ups, on/off switch and software. Trigger magnet is sold separately.
