David, the KC-t software designer, took to the track at Forest Edge on 15 June 14. It was his first time seeing the system in “action” and the first time in a kart for 7 years!
I’m pleased to say he did not beet my fastest lap, but considering the time since he last drove he got worryingly close!
As well as David getting track time we did another test of wheel speed sensors. We have now selected the one that works best. It is easy to fit, robust and fully water proof.
Thanks to Poole Bay Racing letting us fit a system to their TKM at Clay Pigeon we had a successful test, of RPM & laps.
It was only a short test, so we need to do further tests on this type of kart.
We will now be doing more tests on TKM and start testing on IAME & gearbox karts.
We tested tyre Temp sensors on the KC-t kart lap timer at Clay Pigeon Raceway. The sensors were monitoring the front tyre temps on a Rotax 177. The second graph was recorded after the pressures had been dropped by 2psi.
