Honest Truth about Parma

Ok, really wanna know truth about these $30-$40 Parma Turbo Controllers, are they any good? Worth the money?? Just bracket racing right now....and does controller depend on how fast car goes??

Re: Honest Truth about Parma

The Parma Drag Controller comes in a 1 ohm version, and I believe they also had 1 in a .5 ohm as well. Those 2 will handle any and all motors up to Opens. The Drag controller is usually around $50. You will spend close to $300 on one of the electronic controllers.

Knowledge does not equal Understanding, and the Truth is the Truth, no matter what you think of it...........

Ok cool, so the 1ohm will work for bracket racing pretty much?

A great controller to own ,nice part is will be around to be a back up ,when you do get your 300 dollar electronic gismo with all the bells and lights , and if you want to go road raceing just buy a 3 or 4 ohm wet wound resistor put it in and go

Re: Honest Truth about Parma

another thing , fairly simple to add a relay to the Parma controller to bypass the resistor when it hits full pull on the trigger .if you want to drop a few decimal points of resistance
