    Does anyone know of any legal to use data acquisition mods or software? I would like to see something that records and graphs/measures braking and throttle pressure, acceleration forces, speed and tire temps, brake temp, and steering input would be nice. Basically something like Motec, but legal to use with gsce. I am hoping someone knows of a mod that does some of this.

    Nothing illegal with telemetry, but using Motec with gsc is unfortunately. It is against their copyright, so I am hoping there is some other plugin or mod that can record data, or read and display data from gsc.

    Anyone know of any alternatives to motec that do data logging that can be reviewed later? While motec should be great and they give it out freely it is supposed to be for licensed products so my preference is to find an alternative if possible.

    I haven't read it myself but on the motec forum a motec rep said that the copyright on the user agreement states it is just for motec devices and for licensed products or software. I haven't downloaded the software or read the copyright and terms of use but it would be great if that is incorrect or outdated. http://www.motec.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=1298

    I agree, I'm just looking to see what alternatives may be available.

    I believe you are correct. I did download i2 pro and in the user agreement it is pretty clear that it is for motec devices or licensed products from third parties. So looks like it can be used on gt6, gtr2, and I think race 07. Of course while I have those I am much more interested in gsc. With the DAQ plugin the information can be exported. I wonder if there is anything else that exists or can be made that can read or organize the given information in a useful manner.
