Daytona Sensors question

I replied to a thread about MSD Ignitions a little bit ago. I don't remember if it was coil failures or the caps being not as good since the manufacturing has been off shored, either way I asked what the preferred Ignition manufacturer is now. A reply said Daytona Sensors is the best and US made. I went on their website and they look impressive but I didn't see that their ignition box was a multiple spark unit. Does anyone know if they are ?

I should add I'm not looking to buy right now; my current MSD is working fine with my O'Reilly coil ! Just doing some research.

Thanks
Joe

Re: Daytona Sensors question

Yes it is a multi-spark ignition.
You're right that it doesn't come out and say so but if you read the instructions on page 12 it does mention the multi-spark feature.
Also on page 16 Figure 13 -Module parameters you can see where you have the option to disable the multi-spark feature.
It is an awesome system,and once you have it programmed it is relatively easy to change parameters and timing curve.

Re: Daytona Sensors question

If your current MSD is working fine, especially with the low down mundane O'Reilly coil, you don't need the next "double left Isle of Man racer, super-duper, whizz-bang, ultra step through, double throw down reverse osmosis filtered new ignition", now, do you.

Re: Daytona Sensors question

I don't have their ignition, but I've got some experience with the brand. I've been running one of their WEGO IV A/F meters in my car for a few years and it has worked great.

I wouldn't hesitate to try another Daytona Sensors product, but I don't really need an ignition system with a ton of features for what my car is and how I use it.

LOL. I liked your reply !
You are correct, I don't need the, let's call it fully featured new ignition, but I like to keep up with what's out there and the system does present options that may be appealing in the future

Thanks,
Joe

Re: Daytona Sensors question

It is nice to have "tune-ability", but, there is a practical limit to it.

Agreed,
You had me with the "Isle of Man" reference. That one separates the men from the boys !

Thanks,

Re: Daytona Sensors question

The Isle of Man motorcycle races are really neat to go watch, but even more fun to ride. What most people don't realize is that those races have marshals, as all races do, but on the Isle, the marshals RIDE ALONG with the racers. I rode as a marshal there for 5 years a few decades ago. We used to have a saying for really great stuff, "double-left, Isle of Man, super step through, Fast Eddie Bellflower ultra fun (fill in the blank)".

Eddie was a guy that made tools and other stuff for motorcycles, and we used to go to his shop in Bellflower, Ca., for lunch a few days a week. we could sit there in his shop, eat lunch, complain we didn't have a certain tool, and Eddie would ask us to describe it. During we eating, Eddie stayed 400 MPH, flitting all about the shop. By the end of lunch, he had proto-typed exactly what we had told hm a tool needed to be. so, he made 'em for sale, and for us. Is giant claim to fame was the universal motorcycle, wire wheel truing stand. Ed Rowe, "Fast Eddie Bellflower". Things like that just don't happen these days, miss it all.

The only one I use these days is "What's a (fill in the blank), if you can't have fun with it?"
