N2MB WOT Box - featuring both 2 step launch and no lift shift!

The WOT Box adds two major features to any car. They are No-lift shifting and 2-step launch control. Both of these features are completely user-programmable using the WOT Box Graphical User Interface.

The No-Lift Shift feature makes no-lift shifting easy by cutting your engine's ignition for a very short period while you no-lift shift. No-lift shifting is keeping the gas down through the shifft. The ignition cut allows the synchros in your transmission to mesh easily, reducing the chance of missing a gear and damaging your transmission. Keeping your foot down through the shift also allows you to hold boost through the shift, thereby significantly improving your E.T.

The major benefits are:

  • Lower ETs
  • Reduced chance of missing a gear
  • More consistent, effortless shifts
  • Reduced wear on the transmission
  • Reduced chance of major transmission damage
  • The 2-Step Launch Control modulates the ignition by cutting power to individual ignition coils to hold the RPM you want to launch at. The turbo will spool up while you do this. You can use this feature for a more consistent and more powerful launch in boost!

Included in the kit:

  • WOT Box
  • USB to Serial adapter
  • Universal wiring harness
  • Heat-shrink tubing
  • Ground lug
  • Zip Ties

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 another.

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 boost shift."

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?

  • Lower 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?

The 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 seasoned pro!

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 alone!

Will the WOT Box affect normal driving?

No. 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 know its there, until you make a WOT Shift!

Will I be able to program it or do I need an engineering degree?

Many 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. Detailed Photo installation instructions are provided with the unit, however if you want to look at installation instructions for this item, N2MB has the installation instructions on their website for you to view at www.n2mb.com.

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.

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?

No, 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 that?

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".

      Hi, Ive heard from some mechanics near me that if I get a Wot box I will have to remove my catalytic Converter or the wot box will eventually cause it to fail.
      1 Answer
      • Modern Performance

        Jordan -correct, the WOT box when used in launch control mode dumps fuel and therefore with extended use can possibly damage a catalytic convertor.

      Since this would ruin my catalytic converter, i was thinking about using a cutout instead when its on. Will that work? If yes, should i be worried about flames coming out of it possibly burning something underneath my car?
      1 Answer
      • customer service rep

        You can use a cut out, however it would have to be before the catalytic convertor to allow the exhaust gases to bypass the cat. If you are concerned about exhaust gases through the cutout, then use the turn down to angle the exhaust towards the ground.

      I have a high flow cat I should be able to run this fine correct? If I look down the down pipe I can see straight through it there's no center...
      1 Answer
      • customer service rep

        You can use the N2MB box with a catted downpipe, however, because this cuts spark, unburnt fuel gets dumped, and that can ignite in the cat, which will reduce the life of the cat.

      Can this be used on a automatic transmission
      1 Answer
      • Customer Service Rep

        Its designed for use with manual transmissions in mind.
        You could use it on an automatic possibly, but it would require some custom work to wire it up as there is no clutch pedal switch on an automatic to trigger the WOT box. For now we'd only recommend manual transmission owners to install this.
