Base Trailing Split Angle

Base Trailing Split Angle


Axis selection and changing values

This table is intended to be used with Ignition Load based on MAP or TPS set as the first/X (left to right) axis, and RPM as the second/Y (bottom to top) axis. Changing the axis values can be accomplished by pressing F3 when the table is selected, then either editing an existing value or adding a new value. Note that if you edit an axis site value, the overall table values will be adjusted so that the shape of the table is unchanged.
Numbers entered within this table represent the number of degrees before top dead centre of ignition timing that is requested. A negative value represents a request for timing after top dead centre.

Base Trailing Split Angle

Only available when the Engine Type is set to Rotary. This value is a Split angle between the Lead and the Trail advance, and is in degrees of Retard. Eg. The OEM timing marks for many rotary engines is at -5 and -20 BTDC (5ATDC and 20ATDC). A Firing Angle of -5 would be used, with a 15 degree Trailing Split Angle. i.e +15 degrees of retard.
