Howard Wilner - E-gas
“E” stands for “electronic.” In cars equipped with e-gas, the accelerator pedal acts like a sensor. Based on the position of the pedal, it immediately recognizes the performance the driver wants. This output signal is used to adjust the engine management system, the throttle plate, turbocharger boost pressure and ignition. This electronic system takes the place of the traditional control technology via Bowden cable and offers significant advantages: e-gas simplifies electronic engine management, responds more quickly and is a technical prerequisite for the electronic stabilization program (ESP).
Electronic brake-force distribution (EBD)
Electronic brake-force distribution (EBD) and the anti-lock braking system (ABS), constitute one unit inasmuch as they share a number of the same parts. EBD ensures maximum braking performance at the front and rear wheels and under normal conditions it prevents the rear-end from braking away because of over-braking. The system counteracts “fading” as a result of overheating.
