    Yeah, cos that makes so much less sense than assigning the Lancia Fulvia to Test Match Special.
    :thinking:
     
  6. Haha - maybe only people of a certain age truly appreciate them?
     
  7. I assume this will be Thursday 3rd September?

    Hmmmm
    Sam alerted me to a couple of possible issues

    The front brakes data in XD shows a temp of about 2000 deg Fahrenheit.

    Which is warmer than I'd like it. I think that's just a clash between the car and the motec out and the performance isn't noticably worse, but that's not the issue that concerns me.

    The engine is really fragile, I blew one up inside 7 laps driving normally, no mad change downs while the revs were at redline, but my engine health - just like Sam's did - kept dropping off with every down shift.

    I don't want people's nights to be ruined by an exploding engine and then just everyone ending up in the pits.

    For ease of conscience, I'm going to change this from the TR4 to the Lotus Cortina, and I'll do some sleuthing on the TR4

    Event changed - Ryan and Knut, if you want to remove your sign up, pls let me know.
     
  11. I'll give the TR4 a shot tonight and see what my Motec-Add says on engine health.

    Keep me up there Stuart.

    Gonna check this out myself today. To fix the brakes and engine I could just edit two lines in the .eng file and the .hdc file.

    Excellent, thanks Kris :good: - both Sam & I use XD, so it'd be interesting to see what Motec Add displays.

    Even if you get a good result, we'll leave it as a Cortina event for now, and revisit the TR4 at a later date

    I just checked out the TR4. From what I can see, I would say someone forgot to add a zero, and wrote 0.007 instead of 0.0007:) Thats the value of heatflux to the disc for a given torque of 1Nm. Thats why the front brakes heat up 10x faster.

    But I did some laps to check the engine, but for me the engine health was constant. I even downshifted from 3rd to 1st etc...

    I'm new to XD though. Engine health is the percentage in the middle of the XD screen right?
     
  17. please add me for the event down loaded the track ps tried top gear track cant get it to load help needed when anybody free

    It is on mine yeah - tbh mine was in an offline race with damage set to "Full"

    There's good info though, so I'm hopeful that some way down the road the TR4 will make an appearance.

    If anyone finds anything, please post it in the general section , and we'll keep this for cortina sign ups for now
