    Anyone using MotecAdd with the Race Series and care to comment - reliabilty, CPU load, worth the cost, etc..?
    I would like to get everthing off my main display and use MotecAdd on my second monitor for car feedback (tire temps, gear, RPM/MPH, and race info (lap, position, timings, etc). I have been using hood cam w/virtual mirror - at least until I know all of the tracks better.

    Note: Using older hardware so cannot use a solution that consumes too many CPU cycles.

    Thanks.

    Worth every bit to me - been using for a little over a year now.

    Cannot comment too much on CPU cycles as I've always run it on multi-core machines, but no issues on my previous Core2 E6600.

    For best results just make sure that the second monitor can handle 1280 X 1024 screen resolution. Other than that, it is worth the money as if very light on system resource usage.

    Thanks everyone for your opinions. My older hardware does slow "slightly" running locally but if I run the client on my laptop all is good.
    May have purchase.

    I have an old P3 laptop (client machine) running SimView that I have networked (works wired or wifi) to my C2D e8200 that I run Simadapter (server machine) on. I get lots of realtime info on the laptop and it really doesn't take up any resources to speak of on the C2D which I race with. And these are all free. You have to hunt around to find them, but they work great.

    Just throwing this out for the sake of variety.
