MyChron4 Update 31.55.06

Mychron4 Front Gr450
A new MyChron4 firmware is available for download. The update contains a bug fix for the RPM Peak Hold function that didn't work properly in some High Stall Clutch applications. Also fixed was a bug that under very rare circumstances would create a problem with data memory. The Dutch language package has been updated, and lastly the firmware updates the MyChron4 data key to version 33.27, which addresses some issues with firmware upgrades for old firmware versions. It is recommended that all MyChron4 owners upgrade.

Analyze Data - How To


On Track Sessions
The first few issues of On Track Sessions, a series of data analysis how-to's, in what is to become a series of such, have been published with more are on the way. There's some great information within these documents!

Oversteer and Understeer Analysis 2.2 MB PDF
Understeer and oversteer are analyzed utilizing an MXL Pro with GPS, 4 shock sensors, a steering angle sensor, front and rear brake pressure sensors, a longitudinal accelerometer, a lateral accelerometer, a gyro, 4 speed sensors, and all engine parameters from the MBE 992 ECU connection.

Full Control of Your Engine - with an LCU-ONE 2.7 MB PDF
The purpose of this MyChron4 test was to determine the effectiveness of using a Lambda sensor, often referred to as an Air-to-Fuel ratio sensor or a wide-band sensor, on two-cycle engines. While Lambda has proven the best way to tune 4-cycle engines, to the surprise of many, it's not only effective but proved to be the best way to achieve and maintain proper carburetion on 2-cycles as well. The Bosch LSU 4.9 sensor used by the AiM LCU-ONE digital lambda controller does not foul or "poison" in 2-cycle exhaust like other Lambda sensors do. Look for a follow up to this issue for some great detail on using EGT (Exhaust Gas Temperature) in conjunction with Lambda for tuning a carburetor in the best way possible.

GPS for Kart Chassis and Engine Analysis 3.5 MB PDF
Using a MyChron4 and GPS, this document illustrates how to use GPS to aid in chassis setup and even engine tuning. The data is from a 60cc kart engine with a required 18mm exhaust restrictor. Data from three separate sessions are analyzed.

Beacon Finder !!

No, this is not a remote control key-finder like device to help you find your beacon you might have left trackside - it's MUCH better than that!

Lap beacons are easy and affordable to replace, missing or erroneous lap times are not. Until now... Beacon Finder is a $10 shareware application written by a long time AiM customer named James Hakewill — and it's brilliant!

I think know you'll find it invaluable.

Beacon Finder is lap time reconstruction software that will correct almost any lap time problem within your data; multiple beacons, missing beacon hits, no beacon out, infrared receiver on the wrong side of the car, doubled up laps, and more. James' nifty little software app uses speed, distance, and lateral acceleration data from a single known good lap to accurately recreate otherwise missing or erroneous lap times.

If you've ever had even just one session where you did not receive lap times because your infrared lap receiver was on the wrong side of the car, or there was no beacon out, or whatever reason — download Beacon Finder now. Even if you've never had a problem, download it anyway because the first time you need it, the ability to recover your lost lap times on the spot is priceless. You can fix old data as well as any future lap time problems that may occur. The $10 shareware fee is a no-brainer.

Beacon Finder

The interface is friendly and the documentation is complete. Head over to James' site and get a copy. I personally will not go to the track again without this software.

Attention 4-Cycle Racers!

MyChron4 RPM and Power Cable - CAN
One cable, RPM and Power
A little known secret to the MyChron4 is it's ability to not only get a perfect RPM signal by connecting directly to a 4-cyle coil, but also to use excess power from the coil to completely power the gauge while the engine is running. This greatly increases the internal 9V battery life since the internal battery is only used for downloading or on screen data review while the engine is not running.

Straight to the Source for Perfect RPM Readings
The perfect RPM signal cannot be overlooked. Oval racers, in particular, know the importance of getting accurate low and high RPM readings. The difference in these two numbers, highlighted by the MyChron4, is critical in getting a good setup — there is no better indicator.

A Secret No More
Perfect RPM's and greatly extended battery life is no longer a secret, it's a $30 cable that plugs into the expansion port of your MyChron4.

Tunica 2006, Get Ready To Rumble!


Just 21 short days reamin before the king of all indoor battles takes place at the O'Reilly Indoor Dirt World Championships in Tunica MS. I have been going to this event for several years now and all I can say is if you have the chance go. Its wild fast paced in your face racing and the action is nonstop from the opening round of practice to the last final usually sometime early the next morning.

I would like to extend my thanks to O'Reilly Auto Parts, Lanier and all the hard working people who make this huge event happen. Also to the many competitors vying for the limited number of spots on the grid.

Look forward to seeing all of you there!

September 28, 2006


In the past 2 days the World Karting Association has announced 2 major changes for the 2007 season. First after much lobbying by its membership they have added a Manufacturers Cup race at New Castle Indiana. Undoubetdly one of two fine facilities located in the state.

Secondly with regards to WKA's effort to cut down on the tire prepping problems they have modified the tire rule for next year which will allow the competitors to bring their own tires to the track. They still must be new and not scuffed and are subject to random inspections with the new sniffer which is in use now. Tire prep is a huge issue affecting our sport and I applaud any club, group or organization trying to control it. Personally I am glad its not my problem to figure out as its so difficult to try and please everyone. I believe that they are doing this for the long term future of our sport and health of its members.

So with these two changes, one to a growing Manufacturers Cup series and one to the Briggs and Stratton National Dirt series which has seen markedly lower numbers this year I see nothing but a great year ahead for both.
