WOT stands for Wide Open Throttle.
What is the WOT Box?
The WOT Box is an electronic device that makes
WOT shifting easy by reducing your engine's power for a very short
timed period while you shift. It allows the synchros in your
transmission to mesh easily, reducing the chance of missing a gear and
damaging your transmission. If the input shaft on a manual transmission
is not allowed to slow down enough it will lock you out of gear time
after time. We have developed a solution to the problem by controlling
the ignition at the shift point to ease the transition from one gear to
What is WOT Shifting?
WOT shifting is a common practice used by drag
racers regardless of if they are running turbo, supercharger or
naturally aspirated. WOT shifting is accomplished by holding the gas pedal
to the floor and never "lifting" off the gas during the shift. The problem with doing
so is when you depress the clutch engine RPMs flare up and a brief
amount of time is required for the transmission input shaft to slow
down. Even the most successful drivers have been known to miss a gear
occasionally. It requires complete concentration and lightning quick
reactions in order to pull it off.
"Keep the pedal
to the metal, blip the clutch, and grab the next gear. Do it fast
enough before the redline, and your reward will be a zero lag, constant
When you WOT shift, your engine is still producing peak power
through the shift. With the clutch released, the engine revs up. This
increase in RPMs and the full output power of the engine makes it very
difficult for the synchros in your transmission to engage. The result
means that WOT shifting can be very difficult and potentially damaging
to your transmission.
How does the WOT Box make WOT Shifting easy?
Our WOT Box momentarily disrupts the engine power long enough for you to make an effortless, fast WOT shift. The result?
ETs - One of our big turbo customer cars dropped their E.T. in the
quarter mile from 12.0 to 11.3 seconds just by adding the WOT Box!
- Reduced chance of missing a gear
- More consistent, effortless shifts
- Reduced wear on the transmission
- Reduced chance of major transmission damage

How does the WOT Box work?
split second that you place your foot on
the clutch pedal with the throttle all the way down, a signal is sent
to the WOT Box that a shift has been initiated. When the module sees
the signal from the clutch switch it will reduce engine power by
cutting the ignition. The
ignition control is a precise timed event that the user has complete
control of. The box is capable of controlling ignition from 25
milliseconds to 700 milliseconds in 25 millisecond increments. With a
range like that the wot box can even make Mr. Magoo look like a
The drivers in our test cars describe using
the WOT BOX as sitting in the car and going through the gearbox with
the engine off!! All the drivers were amazed at how smooth the gearbox
was. The transition from gear to gear is effortless and the boost gauge
would barely show a blip between the shifts. We were able to test on an
Evo8 with a laggy 60-1 turbo and managed to hold 30+ psi through every
gear! Even on a stock turbo equipped Dodge SRT-4 we were able to knock
3 tenths off e.t. by simply hooking the box up. Our big turbo SRT-4
cars were able to drop up to 7 tenths off their E.T. with the WOT Box
Will the WOT Box affect normal driving?
The WOT Box will only activate when you are WOT Shifting. Normal shifts
will be ignored and continue to work just as you expect. You won't even
there, until you make a WOT Shift!
What is 2-Step Launch Control?
Launch Control allows you to program a desired launch RPM, then if you
press the clutch and subsequently floor the gas, the engine will rev up
and the WOT Box will kick in to hold your desired RPM. It will cut fuel
and spark to accomplish this. The turbo will also develop boost. you
can use this feature at the track for a more consistent and more
powerful launch in boost! Visit our See It In Action page to see it at work!
How about some testimonials from users?
Will I be able to program it or do I need an engineering degree?
after-market electronics are bulky and
full of dip switches, buttons and dials that are enough to make the
average DIY'er bang their head on the wall in frustration! The WOT Box
is simple to program with only one button and one LED. Check out our User's Guide to see how it is done.
Will it work on my car?
YES!!!!!!!!!! We currently have installation instructions available for the SRT-4.
More cars, including the EVO and WRX are coming. If you would like to
participate in testing on a new car and receive a very discounted WOT
Box, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Will the WOT Box work on a car that has the X brand ignition?
Yes. It will work on any ignition setup that has a common positive lead for all of the ignition coils. See our installation instructions page for custom wiring diagrams for specific ignition setups. If your setup is not listed, email us!
What is involved in hooking it up?
No new hardware
is needed. The installation will only involve hooking up a few wires. Full instructions are available here.
Do I need a clutch switch?
you don't! Most recent cars have the clutch up switch already built in.
If you have cruise control, you likely already have the switch you
need. Contact us if you have questions.
What's that serial port on the side of the box for?
We are currently developing a slick windows
interface for the WOT Box. With it, you'll be able to download a
history of your previous 200 WOT shifts, get your average shift time
and program the exact ignition kill time you want. You'll also be able
to upgrade the firmware on your WOT Box as we develop new features and
improve performance. We were going to charge $99 for the computer
interface, but now we're going to throw it in for free. How great is
How big is it?
It's small enough that you will be able to
hide it up in your dash. The exterior dimensions are 3.8" x 1.6" x
0.8". Here is a blueprint of the enclosure we use. 1551KFL.pdf
