    Is there any way of seeing the brake temperatures on GTR Evolution? Can't seem to find it anywhere.

    Use the 'change LCD' or maybe it's called "cycle LCD" function, bound to a button somewhere. It will flip through a few different sensor screens on the in-car LCD screen - mounted either flat on the steering wheel, or more commonly behind the wheel (like an instrument cluster replacement). The four different modes are:

    1. Default (lap/sector timing)
    2. Engine water/oil temperatures and RPM
    3. Tire temperatures (front left, front right, rear left, rear right)
    4. Brake temperatures (front left, front right, rear left, rear right)

    The LCD is often impossible to see without altering the seat position. I find it a bit of a nuisance in the DBR9.

    Is there anyway of seeing 'absolute' sector times rather than just the split?

    I haven't tried all the cars yet, but with GTR2 there were some cars that don't have that option as it wasn't available with the car in real life.

    Indeed, some cars don't have that advanced LCD. Camaro Cup cars from the STCC expansion is another. Also, I believe, the Radical sport cars and the Caterhams.

    I can't seem to make this work. I installed it and turned it on and started GTR-E and spun around a bit then alt-tabbed to windows to have a look and the readings where all dead. Did i do something wrong?

    it is a usefull readout.
    For instance if you run on monza , you see the temps of the brakedisc drop on the straiths , lowering you brakeduct setting will result in braketemps not dropping to low , like under 300 degrees.

    Was this meant to be an answer to my question?

    I know what it's for i just can't get it to work. It doesn't collect any data, no readings to look at. Was wondering if i was doing something wrong that you guys could point out for me.

    no was not an answer , the answer was allready said , that it's not availlable in all cars , and if it is , it's on the display or on the wheel and you can browse to it with the lcd menu button.

    what i said was more of as comment.

    but never mind, next time i will keep out of your topic. :rolleyes:

    Hehe, it's alright mate. However i don't think we are done misunderstanding each other quite yet :) I'm not talking about the LCD but the "Realtime telemetry" That David Hal mentioned in an earlier post. http://forum.racedepartment.com/gtr-...telemetry.html

    That's what i can't get to work and would still appreciate some advice on how i should proceed in order to get it up and running.

    What are you using as OS.

    Im using Vista x64, and at first it didn't work for me either.

    I forgot to start this program up as administrator.

    When Evolution starts up, the line at top "Unknown Game" ,will change into "GTR Evolution".
    Only then, there will Telemetry information.

    And could someone please explain the position,purpose and how to read the following readings: Traction, Stability, Clutch, Limiter, Lights.

    And if anyone knows i'd still like to know how accurate this is.

    These ones are to telling you what is enabled and what is not. Green=Enabled / Red=Disabled.

    I have used it in a couple of practice sessions and the data was the same that in incar LCD and the data observed with MoTeC i2 Pro. So I may say that it's very accurate.
