  • 2012 Proton Saga FLX bolt on turbo

    Here is my own 2012 Proton Saga FLX bolt on turbo. Currently running without management, still able to boost up to 0.4 bar (albeit with bad fuel consumption). Saving up for a Haltech Sprint 500 standalone! To complement the power, a new semi-racing clutch will be dropped in. Next is to upgrade the brake system to a double servo pump, and better brake pads. The car is currently running on a lowered spring setup (Sapura sports spring) which is sufficient for daily usage. Read more

Electronic Stability Control? Whats that?

While you may not feel it in action, most new cars are equipped with ESC. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) helps drivers maintain control of their vehicle and to avoid crashes by reducing the danger of skidding, or losing control as a result of over-steering. 

ESC activates when a driver loses control of their vehicle. This is possible through computer controlled technology that assist in applying individual brakes, helping the driver bring the car safely back on track, without the danger of fish-tailing.

You don't want to end up like this Toyota Camry! 

Why do I need it?

Australian research shows that ESC reduces the risk of:
  • Single car crashes by 25%
  • Single 4WD crashes by 51%
  • Single car crashes in which the driver was injured by 28%
  • Single 4WD crashes in which the driver was injured by 66%*
No other active safety device has such potential to reduce single car crashes.
