Allow More Customization of Display Screens

I think it would be good to allow more customization for the display screens when in the car. I like the lap timing screen that shows the delta, predicted lap time, last lap time, and best lap, but I wish I could substitute some of those items for a gauge. Right now the only freedom I have is to use...

Thanks Brent. I'll give that a try. Can you expand on what is going on in the back end when trying to send a configuration to the Race Capture while I have a script that starts logging on power up? Based on what you said I could see some issues coming from that. The SD card was indeed plugged in the...

Hi Brent. Log file is attached. This is after driving around the block for a few minutes. The car is stored at my friend's house so I can try something else in a few days. I had to delete half the rows to get under the 256kb file limit. Let me know if for some reason this doesn't give you what you w...

New Analog Channels Not Being Logged - RaceCapture MK3

We got our new engine running tonight and added a few analog voltage inputs such as oil pressure, temperature, and wideband lambda. For some reason these channels do not seem to be logging to the data file. They are reading properly as seen on the dashboard, and are set to be sampled at various rate...

I don't have an Analog X, but I think the limitation over CAN is that you can only specify a scaling factor and offset to the raw CAN value to obtain something in engineering units. I haven't tried this before, but could you create virtual channels in the Lua scripting that take in the raw voltage o...

BMW (E36) Pressure Transducer Adapters

Hello!

I'm planning on installing a few pressure transducers and was wondering what adapters people are using to go from 1/8" NPT to M12x1.5 (common threads for BMW E36 ports). I found some, but saw many reviews of brass ones cracking or breaking off in people's engines.

@wizrd54, I'd be interested in getting your Python script - WinDarab looks pretty interesting, even the free version. Thanks, Scott Here you go. The variable names and code is a bit of a mess because this evolved over time and was mostly me coding at track days. One note is that every once in a whi...

I always have this issue on my computer when opening the analog section of the setup area. No idea why it is happening. It seems to only happen on my laptop. Might try uninstalling everything and reinstalling it to see if that fixes it.

Track Detection Pop-Up Occurs at Inconvenient Times and More

First I wanted to say that we used the RCP for the first time during an actual race this past weekend at Pitt Race. It worked great! Post-race analysis showed us where our drivers could improve their technique and lap times. However, one issue we had was that the track detection screen would pop up ...

I will play around with it more tomorrow and this weekend, but I get no 0s or 1s when trying println(getButton()). Debugging worked fine for the rest of the script. The rest of my script worked though. I was originally going to make a timer for the driver to know how long they have been in the car f...

Can't Get Action Button State and Only Controls Logging?

I was trying to have a script that would do some action when the action button on the RCP was pressed. It doesn't seem that I'm able to get the state of the action button. I tried just doing println(getButton()), but nothing showed up. Also noticed that by default the action button starts and stops ...

The problem is almost certainly two onTick functions. Get rid of the top onTick function function onTick() getcoolantTemp() updateFuelAvg(getAnalog(0)) end The onTick method is what the Lua engine executes every N (the value of setTick) milliseconds. Defining it twic...

I have created my own Python script to convert the sparse CSVs into a tab delimited text file that can be read by Bosch Motorsports WinDarab. I doubt many people are using this program because a full license is expensive, but it's top notch. If anyone wants it, let me know.

This worked great. Really good document to explain everything as well. Thank you.

I scaled it 0-100 and ended up needing to use 200000 instead of the 50000 called out in the PDF. Our 318ti chump car is a bit less aerodynamic than a Formula Ford used in the documentation haha.
