Title: Hiatus
Post by: Bacchulum on October 16, 2019, 10:07:30 AM
It's probably best to regard me as away indefinitely at the moment.
I'll try to make what races I can, if and when I'm up to it, but don't hold your breath.

That's bad news :(I've enjoyed racing against you since forever, always tough, always fair.
I hope you can get things back on track (literally).

I am  still this side of the grass.
I've just been having a "holiday" in hospital evicting some blood clots.
On the up but I still need some recovery.
Missing lapping like fuck, so you can be sure you'll see some times as soon as I can.

And I'm freeeeeeee ;D ;D ;D ;D
Maybe tonight I'll do some practice but might not race, not sure yet (and I reckon I'll suck hard :P :P :P )

[edit]
The lack of updates, despite being bored shitless with nothing to do in hospital, is QLD Health servers block this site for some reason. :-\ ???
(real reason is something called: Google Data Saver)

Would be good to have you Back Bacchulum. At least tonight you only have to turn left, easy!

And I'm out again. >:(

Pedals have died this time, absolutely zero brake.
I've ordered a replacement sensor, hopefully that fixes it, as replacement pedals are out of the budget.
ETA for the sensor is 20-25th.

Remap the clutch.  ;)

If they are Logitech G27's then I sucessfully replaced my potentiometers with these previously.

Fanatec Club Sport V2 (I think, could be V1) so I've ordered one of these HAL sensors:
(https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/RVcAAOSwn~ZZbLs8/s-l500.jpg)

I heard a crack and the signal dropped to 17% and very erratic, 2 days later nothing at all.
This looks like the only piece that can break.
I suspect the centre part has broken out, but I need to get my tools this weekend to confirm.

I had some spare G25 pots, if that was what you where after, sorry I could not help.

I mentioned this to AB and RussG last night and they may be able to help, thanks AB and RussG.

I just saw this. I've got a large pack of these from a while back which I don't use, I can send one or two over if you still need any.

They're a common and cheap bathroom scale 50kg load cells / strain gauge. I had intentions of making a DIY load cell mod to some G29 pedals which I never got around to.

Cheers for the offer AGK, but I had already purchased one from Fanatec.
Which arrived yesterday and did exactly as advertised. ;D
Should be back on track tonight being a danger to everyone. :P

They say racing is about going fast, but being able to stop makes a huge difference too.
It appears my cell may have been cracked for quite a while, the brakes feel completely different.

I'll send you my old spare anyway, no use to me anymore (and they break more often than you might think - I ended up pitting a quick connector on it so I could change without having to pull half the rig apart).
