Technical Talk / Possible system enhancement
« on: October 17, 2017, 01:33:33 PM »
I was thinking about a winter project for me, and here is what I came up with:

A single digit display that plugs into an existing display, and shows any penalties applies to the car before he crosses the finish line.

0 means no penalty
1-9 is number of cones
"d" for a dnf

Since it will plug into an existing display, it doesn't need a battery or radio, so the cost should be reasonable.  I haven't done a costing yet, but I think it could be done for $150 or less.  Of course, the first one is always a pain, since I need to modify the display firmware, add wiring and a socket to the existing display, and modify MJTiming software to transmit the penalty out to the display.


SASC Events / Results for practise event of October 15, 2017 at YYC

Scored as single best run, since we made no course changes at all.

The course did indeed drive much like a road course -- I liked it a lot.  Super tough to find those last few tenths, even when we had 13 runs to figure it out.

Cam took a few runs in my Miata, and on his last run, "figured it out" :)  He did a raw time of 35.803, beating my best run of 36.413.  The resulting PAX time also beat his Corvette PAX time, by .178 seconds, so I guess Cam proved a few things definitively today:
1. He is fast :)
2. Today's course was not a power course

Updated overalls (not adjusted for venue restrictions):

Things of note today:
Cam's awful results happened because I corded a tire and rudely kicked him out to drive an STR classed S2000.  The classing change killed his results for the day -- he was in second place in the morning, about .5 seconds ahead of me.

James C kicked butt today, beating everyone in PAX.  Nice driving James!

No marshalling, so the course "changed" over the day, and it appears that some people managed some unreal times towards the end of the day :)

Access denied to your picture (but I know exactly what you mean anyway).

I played around with those elements all day, although I never did do it Ryan's way.  However, I did try keeping more left after the kink, as well as letting the car drift far right like your video.  I also tried a super tight line into the finish, as well as letting the car track out into the center of the finish lane.

The results were pretty inconclusive for me -- I never did find that .5 second I needed to move ahead of Quentin.  All 5 of my afternoon times were within a tenth or so of each other (36.971, 36.833, 36.942, 36.858, 36.823).

Today's scores:

Updated overalls (no accounting for 2 events per venue):

We set a few records today, with 107 drivers, and we still managed 10 runs each, finishing before 5:00 P.M.  That means we had over 1000 runs for the day, which is amazing.

SASC Events / More radios missing
« on: August 28, 2017, 06:10:37 PM »
We are now missing 2 green radios and one large black radio.

Thanks to Bill R for getting the timing gear delivered to me.  I see that someone spent $100 yesterday -- the case was full of little plastic bits :(

Saturday practise scores:

Sunday championship scores:

Updated overalls (not handling 2 events per venue requirement):

We need a volunteer to haul the timing equipment to Fort Macleod and back.

I had to add a .001 run to everyone for the 4th set to make this work.

Scores for Saturday and Sunday combined, with your challenge runs shown as fun runs:

The computer was set to score single best run, so I scored the event that way.  Let me know if this is incorrect.

Updated overalls (NOT using the new scoring method, so probably of minimal interest):

SASC Events / Volunteer needed to transport timing gear

We need a volunteer to pick up the timing gear and radios from my place, transport them to Fort Macleod this Sunday, and get them back to my place.
