    Speedo Vids- My contribution

    bumped back up to 17 psi today here are some attempts at a 60-130. Nothing offical as my vbox is worthless right now. But using the simple stop/play timing technique, Im seeing a good improvement from previous runs- probably an average .5 off actual, at least. I know i know, nothing scientific, but Im using it to see any difference.

    I did also try 3 different techniques, lower shift point and starting in 2nd or 3rd gear.

    Todays runs-17 psi

    1-not fully 130 as i wasnt watching speedo, but the road (S/P=8sec.)




    2-shifting earlier (S/P=8sec.)




    3- shifting early as well (S/P=8sec.)






    past vids-16 psi

    in "D"- automatic shifts @ redline (S/P=9sec.)




    in "M" shifting at redline (S/P=9sec)

    off topic, how's that fx400 treating you? How many miles on it and are you using it with their flywheel or stock DMF?

    already did that, thats what IMG suggested and it saves stuff now, but not in a format that anything can read. I can open it to a text/ looks like MS word file and read some data/numbers, but the vbox laptop s/w wont open it and graph it...

    Which files do you see on your SD card? If its just dbn files then you can't read them in a text editor...you need to open it in performance box software (don't get the circuit tools)...keep in mind, we all call this a vbox when its not a vbox Click here to enlarge its a pbox, performance box by the racelogic company that makes the vbox lol Click here to enlarge

    One other thing to do, if you want to see a human readable txt file, go to setup and choose "write results file"...this will periodically, when you come to a stop after a run, write a summary of your results to a txt file you can read over...the txt file though can't be used to verify results

    ill take a look in a few, but basically the vbox wont connect to the computer either, which makes me thing the f/w is corrupted, and i cant update/ reinstall..

    what would be great, is if you can post a direct link to exactly what i need to download and install on on the computer, i dont like how un-user friendly all this stuff is.

    Here, go to this link:

    http://www.vboxusa.com/performancedr...ormancebox.php

    In the menu on the bottom right you'll see a link to download software and firmware. Use the software to read the dbn files. I updated my pbox firmware as well and the firmware update instructions are there as well, should work if your pbox works

    I think I have about 6k miles on the CM and I haven't had an issue w/ it yet. I'm using it w/ the stock flywheel. It's been down the strip about 30 times and pushed through dataloggong from a roll and a dig close to 100 pulls along with a bunch of fun outside of that.

    I thought you were supposed to have some dbn files in there (.dbn extension, not .vbo)...in that 3rd screenshot try changing the dropdown to list .dbn files
