Flashers are the means of installing a tuned/modified engine management program into the ECU.
There are two basic types of flasher. Master and Slave and it's very important that you make the right choice now.
A slave system does almost everything that a Master system does except that who ever sells you or is the Master to the slave is the only person or company able to supply you MOD files that will work with your machine. (Files for slave machines are encrypted and only files from the supplying Master will work)
A Master system is unencrypted ad therefore able to save, read and write files independantly without being tied to or dependant on any other machine. For most a Master system is the logical choice if they intend to develop their tuning career and buy MOD files from various sources.
comes complete with Race EVO file modification software and training so that you can make your own tuned files.
For some people a slave machine is fine, especially if you want a simple, easy to work with system and you are happy to purchase files from the person or company who is master to your slave.
One last point about Slave and Master. Master systems can use the same files as many times as they want and Slave systems generally have to buy a new file each time they want to make a modification, even if they have used the same file on previous installations.
