Re: Aim Solo says low battery

It only recently started to act wonky. I thought it may have been the outlet being the issue but it’s happened on 3 different vehicles now,all times displaying the “low battery” alert and then a shut down even though plugged in to 12v. It’s been 1000 times more dependable than the Racelogic timers I...

Re: Aim Solo says low battery

Thanks for the offer Paul,but I found the AIM usb cord in the cable/rats nest drawer I put it. I've now got it plugged in..is there any way to see/tell if it's actually charging other than let it sit overnight and try it? You would think there would be a battery power percentage indicator.. :?

Re: Aim Solo says low battery

Thanks Jeff. Does the unit charge by being plugged in with the 12v cord or is there a specific charger unit? Its been so long since I bought it I can't remember seeing a separate charging accessory.

Aim Solo says low battery

Recently my Aim Solo (original model) has started to say "Low Battery" and shuts itself down even though it is plugged into a good 12v source. Fuse in plug is good. It seems to "sense" being plugged in as the unit powers up and acts normal for about 5 minutes. Then the message comes on screen and it...

Where did SU class go?

I don't see any points standings for Super Unlimited class and the latest competition email from Com does not even mention SU. When was the class eliminated, and why? One less $6 trophy to buy for every event? If that's the "reasoning" then just make it a "no trophy" class, but at least it could hav...

Re: My MOTA build..thats Atom, backwards...

Got the MOTA on the scales yesterday..and much to my surprise..it weighs in at 1400lbs...without me in it. Heavier than I expected, but steel and iron factory bits add up quickly! I'll be adding another 70lbs with the addition of two more main hoop support bars (one back and a semi-Petty bar) and so...

Re: My MOTA build..thats Atom, backwards...

Last one. My well used tires were going away..but the car felt very stable and wanted more. Not nervous or twitchy at all. NO roll..NO dive under braking..it was very entertaining. Passing a Ferrari made it all very real. I'M...H-A-P-P-Y...I'm H-A-P-P-Y...!! :lol: I’ll have to work on getting it loo...

My MOTA build..thats Atom, backwards...

Inspired by others who have built cars at COM,especially Wild Bill McMahon and his V-8 hotrod Austin-Healey..I decided to build a lightweight fwd track car. I started with a 2005 Focus ST which is powered by a 2.3L Duratec 150hp engine and 5spd MTX transaxle. I would use as many components of the do...

Re: Why no in-car instruction at COM?

Yes Bruce. I am not one of the "pandemic" believers. I guess I didn't make that clear. Being inside a car with open windows, mainly driving at a minimum speed of 35mph... wearing a full coverage helmet with a shield, talking on an electronic communicator to the other occupant of the vehicle, I see N...
