FAQInstruction Manual


The latest software download The TAO is a drive effector that makes it possible to perform bi-direction data communication with the TACHYON.

With this product, the characteristics of the TACHYON and LUXON can be changed at will. This, in combination with categories and course layout, allows you to enjoy a wider range of settings.
Not only can you change the strength of High Speed Breaking, but by performing temperature control that uses a radiation thermometer, it's possible to search for the best settings that find a balance between driving performance and the source of power while confirming actual number values on the LCD screen, allowing for a sporty performance that is unavailable with conventional models.
In order to make it easy-to-use, the TAO main unit has been pre-loaded with 5 types of preset data to match categories. Additionally, the user can save 3 types of data.
Of course, a PC is not required during normal use. It's possible to send and receive data by connecting the TACHYON RX cable to the TAO.
