THE DASTEK DYNAMOMETERS
After being in the market for a new dynamometer, we were shocked to discover that none of the latest state of the art chassis
dynamometers functioned as well as our old machine, which we had upgraded ourselves over the years.

This inspired us to design the perfect rolling road dynamometer for our own use, but, as time went by, more and more dynamometer operators saw the functionality, stability and sensitivity of the Dastek dynamometer. As a result, we were inundated with requests for dynamometers. To date, demand has far surpassed supply. Each dynamometer that leaves our premises has been meticulously hand built to the high standard and quality for which we have become known.

At Dastek, we passionately strive to improve on our products and skills. We are confident that our chassis dynamometers are now ultimate choice for sensitivity and stability as required for tuning modern vehicles.

ABOUT THE
U
NICHIP
Welcome to the new age of tuning computerized vehicles. Over the years the coming of the computer did marvels for the automotive industry. Unfortunately, workshops lost all control over the tuning of these vehicles. Even the slightest idling problem cannot be cured by the non-franchised workshop. In most cases even the authorized agents cannot cure these problems. In short, the tuning of computerized vehicles became nearly impossible.

The
U
NICHIP
gives the properly trained technician full control over the timing and mixture functions of most electronically controlled vehicles. Not only can mixtures and timing be set, but can also be set under various load and RPM conditions. This allows for the optimization of the vehicle for economy under light load conditions and sets it up for optimum performance under full-throttle conditions.

The
U
NICHIP
is much more than just a "chip". In fact, it is a fully functioning computer which is added to the vehicle’s existing engine control unit (ECU). Apart from controlling general timing and mixtures, it can regulate idling control, drive extra injectors, fully manipulate timing functions and eliminate road speed governors. It can be accurately described as a "Piggyback" computer.

The
U
NICHIP
is wired into the existing ECU harness. Should it be removed, the vehicle will return to standard functionality. Unlike other after-market units, when the
U
NICHIP
is programmed with zeros, the vehicle will operate as standard. Only areas specified by the driver and operator need be altered.

What makes the
U
NICHIP
unique above other after-market "chips" is that it provides for the opportunity to optimize the performance of almost any make and model of vehicle.

BECOME A
U
NICHIP
                DEALER
The
U
NICHIP
was the first automotive piggyback computer in the world. With more than 20 years of experience and development it remains the very best tuning option available in the world. Select from different mapsets, tune different vehicles, diesel or petrol all with one product. It is the ultimate universal tuning tool. We have application schematics for several thousand different vehicles.

Becoming a
U
NICHIP
dealer is the only way to ensure a future in today’s tuning industry. It is a universal piggyback computer system designed and developed by a tuner, specifically for tuners. Almost twenty years of development has ensured that the software, installation and programming is as easy and fast as possible.

The truth of the matter is that very few tuners can still tune cars today. We have not come across a tuner yet, who has not
been impressed with the system and has not been eager to get involved. In 1999, almost 200 tuners became
U
NICHIP
dealers.
U
NICHIP
dealers across the world are numbering more than a thousand and growing at a daily rate. The most prominent reason that the
U
NICHIP
has out-performed other chips in every single test done by independent institutions, is that every car is tuned individually. Because no two cars are the same it is impossible to write one map which fits all vehicles. With the
U
NICHIP
a vehicle can be re-programmed faster than with any other system.

On most electronically controlled cars the timing and fuelling can be set at thirteen different throttle positions in 400 RPM steps. At any given RPM and Load point, the timing is made faster or slower, the fuel richer or leaner until the desired tuning for that point is achieved. It is not needed to do all the available points (over 300), the
U
NICHIP
will automatically fill in logical values between tuned points.

The
U
NICHIP
alters crank and load signals. It can do boost control, throttle boosting, water injection, nitrous injection temperature control, acceleration enhancement, remove many roadspeed governors, add roadspeed governors and much more. It records the maximum RPM and boost for engine guarantee purposes. It can manipulate launch control, drive extra injectors, accel enrichment, drive manifold flaps or cam solenoids and has many other functions.


The
U
NICHIP
  is by far the most advanced piggyback system in the world.

                DISTRIBUTOR
The difference between a dealer and a distributor is as follows:

A Dealer is a person or company who installs and programs the
U
NICHIP
and sells it to the general public.

A Distributor is a person or company who wants to set up his own dealer network in a country and supply the
U
NICHIP
to these dealers. Normally the distributor also installs and programs the
U
NICHIP
in order to have first hand experience with the product and new model vehicles. In very small countries exceptions are made and are handled on a one on one basis.

If your country does not already have a distributor, you are invited to read the information below and fill in the application form.

What we normally look for is someone who can set up a network of dealers in an area. This person will have to distribute the product to the dealers/installers and provide them with training. He should also have some marketing experience. There is quite a handsome profit to be made by the distributor. The distributor must be able to trace the wiring on new vehicles and update the manual for his country, own the right equipment and have reasonable financial backing to carry stock. The most important equipment required to become a distributor is a stable and sensitive loading type dynamometer. A decent gas analyser and oscilloscope will also be needed. Experience in reading oscilloscopes will help. Whatever experience is lacking, training will be provided for in South Africa.

If you are interested please fill in the questionnaire and return to us via email or fax!
Please note: If you don't have all the equipment and services it does not automatically mean you don't qualify.

HI-Q DASTEK
The embodiment of service innovation and
exhilarating offers on leading brands!

Being repeatedly voted the number 1 tyre retail outlet in South
Africa proves that
Hi-Q
has a trusted formula that works.
01
WHEEL ALIGNMENT

Wheel alignment concerns the geometrical adjustment of the suspension and steering to prescribed angles as determined by the manufacturer of the vehicle. Proper alignment will increase the lifespan of your tyres, stability of the vehicle under acceleration and braking,
the overall comfort and safety of your ride. It is advisable to get your wheel alignment checked every 10 000km and you should ensure that wheel alignment of the vehicle conforms to specification whenever new tyres are fitted. It is almost impossible to rectify the wear pattern, once a tyre starts to wear in an unsatisfactory way.

In need of a service?
Check the thread of your tyres for irregular wear patterns. If there are any irregular wear or your car drifts to one side on a flat straight road, please get it checked out.

Get down to Hi-Q now and have a qualified professional see to the problem before:
  • Too much tyre damage is done
  • Unnecessary expenditure incurred
  • Your motoring safety is compromised
02
WHEEL BALANCING

Wheel balancing ensures that there is no imbalance of your tyres and wheels, and that it is
consistent throughout. Correct balancing is vitally important to performance, safety and
prolonging the overall lifespan of your vehicle. Get Hi-Q Dastek to inspect the wheel and
tyre balance of your car at least every 10 000km. Also, take the opportunity to ensure your
tyres are evenly inflated every time you fill up your vehicle.

In need of a service?
If you experience vibrations in your steering wheel or in your seat while driving at a high
speed it is often due to a weight imbalance on your tyres or wheel assembly. Have a
qualified Hi-Q professional check the balance on your tyres.

Quick safety tip
Regularly check balancing and alignment – every nine or ten thousand kilometres,
depending on the speed and roads you travel on.
03
10 POINT SAFETY CHECK

Hi-Q is renowned for its famous 10 Point Safety Check, designed to ensure that your
vehicle functions at optimum safety and efficiency. Our dedicated team of professionals
possess the knowledge, experience and equipment to detect and fix any problems your
vehicle may present, so that it is well prepared for the road ahead.

The following things will be scrutinised:

  • Tyre tread depth
  • Uneven wear on tyres
  • Exact tyre pressure
  • Wheel alignment
  • Wheel rotation
  • Shock absorbers
  • Exhaust system
  • Brakes (Pads, discs and brake fluid)
