Closer Look | Defi Smart Adapter for iOS / Android, Multi Gauge Display

We have taken a closer look into what the new Defi Smart Adapter W is capable of. There are two Smart Adapters available for order. For connection to just the Advance Control Unit (PN# DF14501), you can transmit data from your iOS / Android device through the unit sensors without connecting it to the OBDII port. The Smart Adapter we tested acquires information by the OBDII port and a 12V power outlet (PN# DF14502), which is a more affordable option.

For an iOS / Android device, the Defi Meter C app (free and available for download in the Apple Store or Google play store) is needed to display the analog gauges and meters on the screen. This allows you to connect the Defi Smart Adapter to your smartphone / tablet via Bluetooth. Once connected, there are two screens(main gauge mode and time measurement mode) to slide through that allows you to choose up to four different multi-display gauges, as well as a four numerical meters on the side. In the top right hand corner, there is a connection and battery icon. By touching each analog meter gauges, you can choose which gauge types you want to view.

The display data for the OBDII port allows you up display speed, tachometer, boost, intake air/manifold temperature, water temperature, and throttle calibration. It also has the ability to display your transmission gear position with each shift. With the Advance Control Unit, there is the extra option to display oil pressure, fuel pressure, and oil temperature. In the time measurement mode, you can easily collect data such as 0-60 times and it records it in the data management tab, where you can easily view, delete, and even share your data.

The Defi Smart Adapter also lets you customize the functions quite freely, allowing you to display different measurements of units such as mph or km/h, PSI or kPa, and temperature units. Some other nifty functions include setting up a “warm up display” option which allows you to manually type in the set temperature you want to monitor for water and oil before you drive off. Another function is an OBDII warning value, to keep your gauges in check by setting a limit to each (tach, boost, throttle, water temp).

For the display screen itself, there is a fully functional color picker to change the display gauge itself and a head-up display option.

The Defi Smart Adapter W is a great option for those who want a fully functional, plug and play multi-display gauge without having the hassle of installing any extra wires and to also achieve a cleaner look in the interior with less gauges.

If you are unsure if the Defi Smart Adapter is compatible with your device or vehicle, please feel free to call the shop for any questions!

Evasive S2000 V.2 Feature in Honda Tuning Magazine

This past August, we had the pleasure of having our Evasive S2000 V.2 featured in the Honda Tuning magazine! Check out the link below to read the online feature.

“The secret to Evasive Motorsports’ success with the first S2000 really wasn’t much of a secret at all. Theory, research, development, and testing had culminated in a potent performer that, other than a few custom touches, was comprised almost entirely of parts you’d find on the inventory shelves of their Santa Fe Springs, California, storefront.”

Pikes Peak International Hill Climb 2014 | Preparation

We have been working hard the past few weeks to get the Evasive Scion FR-S ready for Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in Colorado! Last year we had a completion time of 10:59 driven by Rob Walker aka MaxRev. We have been preparing all day and night with major new upgrades to the FR-S such as HKS 2.1 Stroker Kit, HKS camshafts 260/266, Hewland Transmission, Motec M150, and lightened aero including carbon doors, revised carbon splitter, fender louvers, and Varis carbon hood. After analyzing the data we acquired from last year and making the necessary adjustments, we plan to beat our current time substantially. Check out the pictures below for daily progress on the Evasive FR-S.
