Re: Seeing Is Believing (FreeEMS Show-casing)

I think the ErzbergRodeo Red Bull Hare Scramble should also be added to this list despite the fact that Fred doesn't like motobikes. We just need to find somebody capable of finishing the race. 2013 race: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvVxK-_yjhA You can also watch this year's race live tomorrow if...

Re: Project FreeEMS Powered WikiSpeed! COMMENTS

Somebody locked the thread so that I couldn't secretly add documentation. So if anyone else wants to use a 2006 Honda Civic accelerator pedal position sensor, here's some more info. From the firewall side the wire colors are Yellow, Blue, Brown, Purple, Baby Blue, and Grey. The functions from the fi...

Re: Saleae Logic - Tips and Tricks

It seems to have stuck some 12v power up the ground or something, and screwed a voltage regulator. The usb ports still work if I supply power to one port externally.

Re: Saleae Logic - Tips and Tricks

I learned an important lesson about the Saleae LA tonight. I was doing some CAN development, so I had a 12V power supply hooked up running a device. I almost tipped my drink over, and in the proceeding mayhem the LA must have gotten some 12v. Now while I would expect my dumbassery to ruin the LA, I ...

Re: Daily WTF

Maybe I'm just an inconsiderate ass, but I feel a mix of disbelief and anger that a car company thinks that governing a car to 4mph is acceptable for any reason, much less emissions fluid. "There is a five gallon urea tank – with a filler neck in the trunk, underneath an access panel. You must ...

Re: Holset HE351VE VGT Turbo (NO 56K)
