    Switchable boost (Regal)

    I know regal do a switchable boost button that limits boost.

    How does it work and can you do it so you had maybe 3 or 4 settings or is it full power and standard power?


    Also would it be possible to have the switch switchable by the button AND a micro switch (Fitted to 1st gear) so you get limited boost to help with pulling away on the higher powered cars?
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    Yeah I read that it limits boost but didnt know if it was possible to limit different amounts and if you could put another switch in on first gear.
