    Anyone have Aero questions?

    I think almost 5 seconds with our fast driver. All our other drivers got much faster too (6-7seconds).

    What was the overall improvement in laptime? 4s it looks like?

    It’s a 90 1.6 miata. We are probably putting down 100 whp on a good day but she’s never been dyno’d.

    Thats awesome, what car, and roughly what sort of HP are you making?
  6. Thanks for the offer Chris. If I would of known I would of sent it to you. Karl did give us racer pricing with dyno time included.

    Anyone have Aero questions?

    So we ran our first race (no aero) at road Atlanta and then just finished our second race at road Atlanta (with nine lives racing wing, splitter, and air dam). We have the same size tire with a wheel 1 inch wider and are making slightly more power but what is amazing is the amount of speed we are carrying more in the corners. In a couple turns we are carrying over 10mph more when comparing fast lap to fast lap. 1.6 miata FYI.
  8. Talking some next level stuff here. I've looked at the Megasquirt stuff from DIYAutotune, I just lack the knowledge (I haven't tuned anything since I had a Hondata KPro in a RSX) and funds. We will probably keep kicking the can down the road on data until we can really dedicate some time and money to it as a team. Thanks for the info, I might pick both of your brains in the future about it.

    What aero would you recommend for an E30, specifically the low powered 318is?

    What happened to your ChampCar today? - 2019

    How does the RPM curve look like, these engines seems to be annoyingly well made. According to wiki it's full power at 5900 RPM stock, would your engine be similar?
  11. Window net is installed, Fire suppression bottle is mounted, need to run lines. Replaced front hub due to broken ARP extended stud. Had a close contact at the last race and broke a stud. New top panel fabbed and mounted, needs shimming and paint. New front rotors and brake pads, battery box. One more weekend should finish out the ChampCar inspection items. Looking to fill drivers roster for open seats in the Harris Hill event at the end of March. Send message with your contact info.
  12. Just tried to book two rooms at The Lodge. Nothing available.... who is hoarding all of the rooms?
  13. Dang, coulda saved you a bunch of money programming your DME. Good luck with the prep and the first race, its a fun platform to race.
  14. 2010 Pace American 18' Torsion axles with greasable hubs 4 wheel electric brakes New tires last fall (2017) Collapsible tire rack mounted up front Spare tire mounted to wall Heavy duty floor anchors Trailer is generator prepped with outlets and has LED shop lights Stabilizer loading jacks in the rear Pace makes some of the best trailers on the market. It is in really great shape. The checker floor on the ramp door has began to come up. A new sheet of vinyl floor or aluminum diamond plate would solve it. Posted up looking for $4250 Located in Massachusetts, willing to travel for the right buyer. Clean Mass title in hand.

    Statistically Speaking, Fuel Capacity

    I guess I wasn't clear in this statement: Equal laptime with equal fuel or near equal fuel required to go 1:45-1:50. Then its up to drivers to eeek out extra fuel conservation or not to go two hours.
  17. As James said, 146 is on megasquirt - so I get a significant portion of data from the megasquirt CAN output (timing, injection, TPS, stock engine coolant temp sensor, IAT, voltages, etc). I have analog sensors for coolant temp (redundant), oil pressure, oil temp, brake pressure, and coolant pressure. 246 is OBD2, so I get can data from the bmw ecu protocol. I am working on getting more data by developing my own can protocol - things like factory oil temperature, timing data, etc can be transmitted over CAN and logged, but not through the standard OBD2 language. 246 has the same compliment of analog sensors. I only have one Podium Connect device, and I have been less than impressed with the software (although, to be fair, Brent @ autosports labs has great customer service, is working on software improvements, and the hardware has been solid), so when James is willing to share his open-source telemetry I will be the first adopter on the other car. If you are still on the e30/e36 stock ecu, you will need to get data through an analog input (the MXL2 has 8), and if you want more data you can use something like this analog-CAN device made by Race Capture (I havent tried this one yet) https://www.autosportlabs.com/product/analogx-4-channel-analog-to-can-interface/

    Statistically Speaking, Fuel Capacity

    Laptime doesn't account for cars that can't go 2 hours in an even hour race. In other words, cars that can only go 1:30 on fuel NEED the ability to go faster to make up the extra pit stops. If those cars are allowed to buy fuel for points, the thought would be that they no longer have the same points available for go fast stuff to set those fast laps. If there are cars that have points left over, are already going faster than the field, and are reliable, that could cause an issue. However, at that point I would suggest a vpi reevaluation.
  19. He's on megasquirt which is a solid solution for all the loggers. His MXL2 has direct sensor inputs as well. If you are running stock OBD1 ecu, you wire sensors direction which requires MXm, MXL2, MXS, MXP, MXG.

    Petitions Due by 2/28/19

    Not if they are good
  21. What about ODB1 cars? Any love for us? How are you doing it @Huggy? Our solution for now is using the apex pro and comparing laps, but its not a full fledged data logger as you guys are using.

    Petitions Due by 2/28/19

    Is there a limit on how many I can send in?
  23. The SmartyCAM gets it's data from an AiM Logger. Solo2 DL, MXm, MXL2, MXS, MXP, MXG. We have our MXG connected to our ECUMaster. We have the RCP / Podium Connect Telemetry and our own that is pretty basic and we plan to just make an open source cheap system for series like this. We don't have the time to make a fully fledged interface so we'll let the community play with it.

    Anyone have Aero questions?

    Do you prefer the 9-3 Aero or the 9-5 Aero?
  25. SonsOfIrony

    Anyone have Aero questions?

    Yep, we've got similar P/W of a well setup 1.8 Miata. It'll turn a pretty decent lap, especially if we can get a tow from something fast enough not to turn itself into a rolling road block in the twisty bits.

    Anyone have Aero questions?

    You don't have a kit for my car but I noticed that you offer several DIY mounts, that is great. Some guidelines in mounting would be great: - Location - Frame vs trunk vs hatch vs bumper - Size to fit into NASA/SCCA/Chump/WRL/Lemons/ etc Many thanks
