Apps and obd . . .

That's how I do mine. I'm actually having a bunch of issues with my video rendering software (that and I missed a bunch of OBD data :( ) at the moment . . .
But I've had enough success to complete one video, its rendering the file now, if it comes out ok, I'll put it on YouTube and link it here.

Video source(s): Ipad 2 camera and GoPro Hero 3 black
App(s): TrackAddict HD, cineform (for the gopro vids) and RaceRender for post production
OBD data: GoPoint BT1


. . . If only I had all this for the SP video!

Hey mate, the telemetry is done with a Bluetooth dongle that connects to the OBDII port (under the steering wheel), this sends real time data for all the sensors to an app on my phone. The app has the option to record the data which I just extract and overlay onto the video.

Picked up the ELM327 OBDII dongle on ebay for $10 (delivered) and there are a bunch of apps that work with it: Dash command was free on Android and Torque is another good one (about $5) that overlays the telemetry and gps track over the phone video but its not as sexy as Dashcommand.

A video from the passenger session in the afternoon! (no sound as it was mostly chit chat)
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vmVdToVRW4[/youtube]

it turns out i did get a bunch of data (but not RPM :( ) so ive added in extra info. As i suspected before i drove the car the goulburn, I had lost power in the mid range of the engine, but I could always feel a big kick as it got past 6200! im guessing me SSV is stuck. In the videos, you can see the issue via the data on the AFR Gauge, the commanded AFR is also displayed to show what the ECU is actually aiming for!

After the passenger session With Sound! has my Best Lap of the day aswell (L15)

Drif, the second vid was very good with all the data readings. I could see you getting better and better as the session progressed. Well done mate! :thumbleft:

Good news everyone, I have the photo's from Alex, there are some very nice ones!

Bad news, the digital distribution he was hoping to setup was just not behaving, so it will take a bit for me to get all the high res shots distributed. I should have the Web versions up and linked tonight!

Hi Nathan,

Here's the price listings for prints if people are after any.

Print Sizes:
5x7 $2.00
6x8 $5.00

8x12 $20
12x18 $37.00

I'd encourage the guys go through me if they're after the bigger prints (>8x10) as I'll be able to control the final product and make sure it looks their best.

Cheers,
Alex
