I've been meaning to set up the shift lights so they are activated based on another variable. Then set that variable to be equal to RPM, provided whatever condition you're monitoring is ok. Then, set it equal to whatever RPM flashes all the lights when your alert condition is met. This could be mult...

Oh, that's definitely bigger than just an antenna. When my antenna broke, I still got data but no GPS/speed/course maps.

Sorry, I can't help.

I had this when I managed to kink the GPS antenna cable. Logged data goes in a folder titled RT040101 as well? They can be ordered online for much less than RT charges - if you can wait for shipping from China. I ordered two, and now treat that cable like it's made of glass and butterfly wings. I ca...

I had the same issue. I completely uninstalled 8.5, rebooted, and reinstalled 8.5. It worked!

This is on a Win 7 Home laptop, if it matters. I haven't had any issue on my desktop computer with the same version and Windows install.

I had debated making a green screen (chromakey) movie to use as the background, make custom gauges fill the whole screen, then overlay that onto my actual video using another program, and manually sync the two. Laziness prevailed and I got the video license instead. The functionality before you have...

Try stopping the log by pushing the button before cutting power. I believe there are issues when you cut power if the logger is still running.

I've been experimenting with SoloStorm on an Android tablet at the track: m It's designed for American autocross, I imagine it would work for hill climbs - no idea if it'd work for circuit racing. It's definitely biased towards quick driver assessments, not car tuning. It pulls data from the DL1 via...

Colin105 - is your box able to read suspension position data at a high frequency and output that as a velocity to the DL1 at the 100 Hz the older DL1s can handle? This is something that many people want, but there are no solutions out there to do this.

1.5 G spikes indicate something funny, unless your drive around the block is a lot more fun than mine! For a simpler test: Take the logger off whatever it's mounted to and start logging. Then put it on its side. Then the other side, then the front, then the back. You should get nice flat lines at 1G...

I received my video license May 08, 2009, would that mean that it's not the 'widescreen' licence?

Is it common practice for licenses to expire at some point? That seems to break with Race Technology's practice of a larger up-front charge with minimal additional fees.

Same problem here, using versions 8.5.0048 and 8.5.0043.

It says 'No video licence available'. I even tried using a lower-res video (stuff that worked before with 8.0.8075) and no go.

Speed = rate of change of distance Acceleration = rate of change of speed Jerk = rate of change of acceleration So it's how fast you change direction of turning, or from accelerating to braking, or vice-versa. I don't understand how a kart's jerk would matter with an accelerometer reading at 200 Hz,...

I feel that it would be a powerful tool to sell more data logger units. Whenever I post video with the low-res gauge display, I get a bunch of people asking how I did that, what they have to buy to do similar, etc. There are two locals that have purchased DL1s in part because of that. Giving the abi...

An easy accelerometer test: Detach it from the car. Start logging. Set it on a flat surface on the front face, flat, and on it's side. Look at the data, plotted against time. You should see nice pure fore-aft and lateral G-forces with little to no blending. i.e. when you're at 1G towards the front f...

When I have that problem I just move my finish line to the area just before I deviate from the racing line. You won't get a perfect lap time but it does let you check that last lap closely.

You could also use separate start & finish lines like an autocross/hill climb.
