Racechrono data to AIM Race Studio analysis

04 December 2018 - 12:53 PM

Can it be done? Anyone know how?

 

Friend and I were at TT last weekend and were wanting to  data share but he is using RaceChrono and I'm an AIM guy. Thanks if advance.


Preventative Maintenance

07 March 2018 - 12:08 PM

Found a cracked rotor last night while changing pads on my Mustang. Surprised me because my normal routine is to look at rotors closely when changing off track tires. Apparently not close enough, and didn't notice until new pads were on. Double bad on me, but wasn't expecting it as the (rear) rotors heat checking was nearly nil. Knew I was getting a long life, but when I checked my records the dang things had been in service for 27 months = 37 track days. I guess I had grown accustomed to fronts getting turfed every 3rd pad change or so but had forgotten about the rears. I keep records on lots of things, e.g. these pads had done 13.5 days which is exceptional for me. I'll definitely be monitoring rotors now.

 

I'm thinking of wheel stud replacements and front hubs. Going on 3.5 years with the ARPs. Anything else? I do a pretty good job with fluids, albeit coolant might be time. The lubes get cycled out about 3x year and I run full synthetic everywhere.

 

So my question to the peanut gallery is on preventative replacements. What's your program? Send it till it doesn't come back?


Anybody on Yokohama Advan A052

19 February 2018 - 01:52 PM

Am currently running 315/30/18 Falken 615K+. Not as quick as Rival-S but close and they last a LOT longer. Like 10-12 track days without cording out vs corded out in 5 days for the Rival-S V1.

 

Tire guy offered up A052 for a good price, but I didn't know anything about them. Any feedback would be appreciated.
