Carloop Basic is sold out. Anyone have one for sale or rent/loan?
Here are my notes while trying a few weeks ago on An rpi4 with raspbian. Note I have not hooked it up to the car, but I was able to run the rdu script and communicate with the carloop. It's likely not all steps are necessary.Is it possible to just run this on a raspberry pi into a carloop instead of the whole windows-vm thing? (I don't have a working laptop right now)
Good info, I was back and forth between loading this or t16 today snd went with the safe bet. I’ll try it out after a whileIs anyone else running T18? I have been for a couple weeks, and we had an autocross test/tune day today. The 1st half of the day I drove it pretty normal, and the last half I tried to remember to push it harder... since that was the reason I was there today. It wasn't oversteery, and felt better balanced. Even though I'm on crappy 340 treadwear tires, it was just powering around corners. I had been on T16 for 6 months (~4,000 miles) prior to changing to T18.
@Kacper ... you're awesome!
I did t16 and am still happy with it, but I did not do the fwd mode.Successfully loaded t16 today, among other changes and am loving it. Launch control feels like a real awd car now.
fwd in normal mode feels like a party trick, I love it.
A heavier focus st sure. Focus st with a turbo upgrade. Idk why you wouldn’t flash it. Just for being able to warm the tires on command is a cheat code basically. Then just throw it back in all wheel.I did t16 and am still happy with it, but I did not do the fwd mode.
how would you describe it? Is it just like owning a focus ST again? Is it worth it?
@Kacper is this a tune we can have made? Like a +25% in launch control only and then only an increase torque limit otherwise?What I want is to match the power increase with a corresponding increase in rear torque allocation, so the car does not reach the point where the rear is capped and the front gets all the remaining extra power, which gives it an FWD-ish character past a certain power output. That would fix the only qualm I have with the stock setup.
What I want to avoid is change the car dynamics. The stock vectoring is already a little too much for my tastes but at least it does not introduce excessive special effects (like drift mode does).
Increasing the torque demand by 12 or 25% (as opposed to increasing the torque cap) basically makes every mode a drift mode and makes the car slower (as you can not open the throttle as much as in stock mode) and more dangerous (as the rear wants to slide when it should not.)
