  1. Sorry guys racing called off due to lack of runners.
  2. Gents, Pretty sure my round is next on the calendar. Having a bbq for tea. Practice from 4ish Tea @6ish Racing @7
  3. No food for me either mate. Cheers...
  4. Glad all had a good night. Yes I'm sold on the fuel racing concept Gaz. My fuel strategy skills must be better than my consistency skills. I'm impressed the Track timing ran without issue all night too.
  5. Next Round at oldfield court raceway. Have updated RC to the latest version so hoppfully this puts an end to track Comms errors. Usual pizza or BBQ if not too cold.
  6. Season 2 round 3 at Oldfield circuit raceway St Clair Saturday 9th May Practice from 4 pm. Thinking pizza for tea from SAMs need to order prior to 6pm to avoid hold ups Or dominos/pizza hut etc Pm me for the address if required.
  7. Count me in. Little Caesars???
  8. Thanks to all that came along Saturday evening i was a little nervous how the night would pan out with stability of the Arduino and track being freshly painted and taped etc. We did finish later than recent nights but got there in the end. Thanks Gazza for setting up the racer database with photos of drivers an all on R/C. Thanks Brooksy and Rosco for locating the backup of the race so we could complete the last 2 heats. Regs Lawrence
  9. Cake, slot cars and sense of humor is all thats required Craig leave the flowers in the ground mate...lol
  10. No plasma Gazza. The big tv and lounge was the trade off for getting the track inside the house.
  11. Season 1 round 3 at my place at St Clair 14th February Freshly painted and re copper taped 3 lane track..... Have got the Arduino sorted out with relays on individual lanes haven't bothered with start lights etc... All welcome practice from 4 pm. SAMs pizza for tea that's our local... Pm me for the address please.
  12. Not sure if I can make it to your round Craig. Big weekend planned at work. .

    Looks like swapping the PC was the fix in the end. Arduino Comms have been very stable and I cannot replicate the Comms fault. Thanks to all for your kind input an assistance. Hopefully I can return the favour sometime. Regs, Lawrence

    Arduino Setup

    Silly question. Is the 5 vdc supply required on the Arduino when used with RC? It's obviously powered from USB but was wondering if this is why it's loosing connection thought It might somehow be drawing to much power from the pc's USB.

    I loaded the Beta version onto the pc I'm using now and all looks good at the moment. I will change back to other version as I think it was the Pc causing the issue

    Hay John, That's the diagram included with the Race Coordinator download. Makes setting up a pice of cake. I just swapped out pc now. I'm using the HP I had set up for cnc router and so far so good.

    What version RC is best? I'm running v1.8.1.0 Just noticed v1.8.1.1 Beta

    Re terminated sensors with cat5 and grounded at Arduino end etc and same issue occurring but now the usb keyboard is freezing up also. I'm going to try another pc I'm using one of those compact Asus Eee pc desktops XP home. Also going to try a non genuine Arduino uno. Using short USB its under a meter.

    Arduino Setup

    Rusty I have completed all the below and the problem has appeared to have worsened now. The issue of other lanes registering laps on RC during practice is now consistent. One car on middle lane registering laps on both outside lanes when car is nowhere near the sensor bridge. 1. Fitted '104' ceramic caps (Same as on a SCX motor) accross the rails on each lane. 2. Fitted 200uF capacitor between ground and +5v on the Arduino to reduce brown outs. 3. Grounded an unused, but wired up, 4th lane input. 4. Fitted a ferrite core to the sensor harness. Phil I'm using photo transistors from Jaycar and yes I have common earth at the sensor end of harness. What's the best way to connect separate ground to sensors when there is limited ground terminal on the Arduino? Is it simply achieved by connecting to common ground at the Arduino end?

    no joy with ground on Arduino connected to track psu. Hopefully Jaycar have bits i need.
