    Petition proposition- Flywheels?

    Flywheel should be free, who in their right minds would ever consider replacing with an oem flywheel on a race car??

    What about ecumaster? Better than Megasquirt?

    Why would they have an expensive high capable H bridge in HW but not exposed in SW? Curious about their software! Is tunerstudio constantly upgrading? To me Holley is all about 60 year olds that like to rev their muscle cars in the driveway, probably not correct but that's the image to give (with plenty of autometer products) One of the builders that recommended Ecumaster over MS said it was a more "complete solution" (whatever that means). There is no plug and play display for MS, race capture pro with tablet seems to be the best solution. (Tried the android apps like ShadowDash, that sucked). They also have their super expensive PMU. But a complete system will cost $4000 and the display, PMU and ECU has a lot of overlap. Each component has like 100 IOs.
  3. Hi, I had never heard about ECUMASTER until a friend told me about them. Seems really good, decent price and plenty of features. Looks professionally made as well: https://www.ecumaster.com/products/emu-classic/ A friend is thinking about doing this instead of MS3. Anyone have any experience with them?

    Canbus based relay IO board?

    Yes! Exactly what I need, except the price. ECUMASTER also has something similar. I don't need 16 solid state channels capable of 50A or something crazy That is option #2. That shield, arduino and some amazon relay board should do the trick. Just would be nice if someone had done that already Ok, I should probably not mention adafruit and seedstudio. (You can find clones at amazon for a 1/4th, but not worth $20 for the hazzle. They suck sometimes and sometimes they are just as good).
  5. Hi Does anyone know of a good relay board that can be controlled over canbus? I have an extra arduino laying around so could probably build one but nice if it already comes in a box. Need it for my overcomplicated accessory control.
  6. Hi, I definitely don't need to get involved in more sports/race cars but what about Porsche 944 race cars? Not a crime to dream. I have heard they handle great and would be cool to race a Porsche. Are they getting to old to work on? How would the do compared to a S2000 with same PWR and both having typical aftermarket suspensions?

    Quickcar switch panel

    I bought a QuickCar dashpanel for about $100 or so, expensive for set of switches but looks nice. For the price I figured it would be great quality (even if they have a lame name). However it sucked, one of the crimps was sloppy and fell off. Luckly this happened during installation and not during a race. Sad, because everything else looks nice but now I can't trust it... Advice, stay away.

    Are you adding missiles or machine guns for that extra button?

    How does the pit speed limiter work, does it actually control the throttle? Looks very nice

    What do you use your buttons for? Planning to add buttons but mostly for cool factor, can't figure out what to do with them. I guess radio maybe. Is the dash based on a andriod tablet or such?

    What car is that? Curious if it would work to just add some thick plastic around. Would look ugly
