Drag Racing Christmas Tree Pluging (from USB Relay Board)
I used the well developed Relay Board plugin and started to modify it to be able to create a drag racing simulator. It is using the board to control the so called christmas tree (=the starting light).
On top I want to use it to measure the time and control the dyno to simulate drag. I could use some help with the development. Who would like to have a look and contribute? How shall I upload a work-in-progress project?
If you wanted to start a public github repo for the plugin I could help but iv got very limited still.
Basically youd then take the speed/distance plugin so you can work out 1/4 mile distance and time how long it takes from the green on your tree.
Last bit of the puzzle would be to have a simulated car weight/load on the brake.
Here is my first ever GitHub repo. If somebody wants to have a look or contribute, feel free to change whatever you want. I appreciate the YourDyno software very much and especially the possibilities for using plugins is great.
Looks like you have made a good start.
Ok, I started over again. This time I based it on the Speed and Distance plugin and used the USB Relay plugin as a reference. Much cleaner now. As the whole architecture changed, I started a completely new repo. I will deactivate the other one:
Thank you for sharing your project.
I tried to use the dragrace plugin, but could not find how I should install and use the programm.
I have the USB Relay 8-Channel connected, the plugin works, I can switch the relays.
The speed and distance plugin works.
Please don't hate me for asking, what should I do to make it work?
We want to dragrace on the dyno as a birthday present 😀
Well, this is far away from being finished. I guess you shouldn't install USB Relay or Speed and distance as this will most probably disturb this plugin. The whole drag racing control part for the Dyno is missing. I was hoping for some help from another developer. Didn't have much time for this plugin recently.
