Here is a video from the BMW E36 Following me
For the logger and the screen it was purely the simplicity of the Arduino and they’re much more robust in design and function, especially in an environment which is full of vibration and electrical noise, also has the benefit that it can be powered on and off easily without having to worry about powering it off correctly.Is there any reason why you went with the Arduino as opposed to something like a Pi Zero? Looking at doing something similar myself with an LCD/OLED/e-ink display and would only need one analogue input but any advice you could provide would be appreciated.
I was running the Federal RSR. I've ran them since day one of doing track days in the Clio and think they are a fantastic tyre in terms of grip vs cost. They last a really long time too. I thought it was a good time to try a more expensive tyre with more outright grip considering the lengths I've gone to in every other avenue with the E46.Always good to read the write-ups on your 330 Tom. This car is part of the reason I bought my 330!
I could probably read back and check but what tyres did you run before the AR-1? I have in my head you ran 595RSRs but I could be wrong. I only ask as my phone doesn't like this forum...
Yeah something to consider in the future but i’m not worried about those numbers and it’s consistent and what i’d expect it to make, it’s on 3% difference in power. I do have one final thing to log and check next time it’s out and it’s the timing map used when the vanos is in fail safe mode. But logging that will give me a better indication.Perhaps it’s worth doing a leak down as opposed to compression?
Anglesey is such a good circuit. I did it a lot in the Clio... Including one of the Renault Sport days there. Here's some early photos of the 200 before the cage was fitted. Some of my favourite Clio photosBrilliant read as usual Tom, love your write-ups.
Anglesey is still someplace I haven't driven, been a passenger a few times now, on my wish list.
Is that a PSDesigns shifter you have? the 360mm one? How do you find it?
Can't wait to see you on track so I can nosey round it.
Yep I remember seeing your old 200 there, it's just one of those tracks I've never got to go on (that and Spa), I will definitely get out there.Anglesey is such a good circuit.

Yeah it's the RTD Shifter from PSDesigns. They are all very similar in design to the CAE shifter. It is the long race shifter at 360mm combined with the DSSR linkage between the shifter and the box and it's amazing, feels so precise and makes driving the car much more enjoyable.
Be good to let you have a look around it at some point as I know you've always taken a great interest in it. a few of us have booked Snetterton with Track Obsession in August if you're around.

Awesome thanks for that, been looking at a few, like you said they're all so similar.
Yep I'm at Snet then, I'm back in a track E36 328i (in Boston Green), so it would be great to have a chat and catch up.
Keep the posts up, always a great read Tom
