DATALOGGING - SLIPMAPS
The recording, or logging of Data is one of the most important tools to refine a Traction Control - next to experience. Different Tyres are like different people, some have more patience, some less. The border of Friction is always different, depending on the Character of a Tire.
So there are very different Types of Tyres on Market, Race and road, and the
spread of their character of Friction, and how and at which slip they start to
loose the Friction. One of the largest Differences regarding the Character of
Slip and allowing Slip are between some Bridgestone and Dunlop Tyres. So there
are some Bridgestone Race Tyres, which (the natural gap in rolling circumference
between FR/RR already deducted) you have to allow approx 10% Slip, without any
Intervention of a TC at all + even at slightly increasing Slip you do not need
to a harsh TC coming in at the beginning, as such a Tyre could be named
indulgent and linear. It's quite normal for such a Tyre to move a bit sidewards
coming out of the corner, some kind of rearwheel-steering.
The opposite are some Dunlops and also other Tyres, which (the natural gap in rolling circumference between FR/RR deducted) already start to loose Friction in a progressive way at ~ 3-4 % Slip. Some Tyres are loosing their Grip in a more "exponential" manner, and here the Intervention and Strategy of a Traction Control has to be way different than the former mentioned one. Those kind of Tyre - as we say in Germany- tend to spit you out, Grip or not, they're more digital.
So as you might see now, using may the harsh Intervention at a indulgent Tyre wouldn't let you come out of the Corner with the Acceleration you COULD have, without beeing in trouble, and opposite ... a mild and late coming in Traction Control on a more digital Tyre would come too late, probably you'd feel like on a Rodeo-ride. Means this is, what the guys from Nemesis are doing, they test all popular and common Race and Road Tyre on Track, to find out, how they behave, and what is the best Strategy of TC for this or that specific Tyre.
And this is named the SLIPMAP, which you get from me for your specific Tyre (of course I need to know exactly the Tyre, Dimension and compound).
But of course, there is nothing, which couldn't be refined, to
be even more professional, to be even faster. But here we are at a point, where
the Character of the Tyre meets the Character of the Driver, and maybe his
specific way of riding. Here we're at the Border, Datalogging becomes essential
So Nemesis has a Datalogger available, which has a preconfigured:
The MTA Data Logger is very robust, and you can store it elsewhere (as long as the wire harness is long enough, which it is). All the relevant Data will be recorded, such as:
Millivolt Throttle Pos
Front Speed Virtual
And much more....... but that's not all, also close to 60
Channels are combined into the Diagnostics, which allow you a very deep insight.
Here's a overview about the Diagnostics/Status Channels (Excel-Sheet): DIAG BIT CALCULATOR
With the Nemesis DataLogger you have a couple Advantages, first is to be able refine your way of riding, as you more and more can interpret your Limit due to the Software/Analysis - but secondly you also can send me the File in case you'd like to have some kind of re-programing for your special/own riding Style. Then next the logger is always helpful if you're the first one having brand-new Types of Tyres, where at present no slipmaps are existing, or also if you have access to "Factory" Tyres, where usually not many people have access to.
So based on the Data, there's always a way to refine the traction Control in case there's a need to.
Some screenshots I made, very helpful are "Scatter Plots" , the comparison between X and Y, and an example of the Graphs, which you can arrange yourself, as you like it.
The Datalogger will be available inside my Shop
soon, and probably you also can rent it, if available.
If you don't want to wait, just drop an EMail to me, the DatLogger is on Stock.
