Attacking the Clock w/ Shawn Bassett
I flew down to Orlando Florida to help our friend, Shawn Bassett (Attacking the Clock), get his 240z wired.
I spend 4 long days wiring the chassis gauges. lighting, and powering up the PCM. The week prior we shipped down our tools and a new Racepak Smartwire power distribution system. We spent a lot of time planning the harness in such a way that it could be easily removed when the car needed to be serviced. The harness we broke down into sub harness that could be unplugged and the main PDM and ECM left in the vehicle The dash harness can be left in the dash and unplugged to make the dash removing an easier process. The front lighting sub harness is also removable in case where the engine radiator, or front tube assy needs to be removed. Awe also spent about 8 hours drawing diagrams for each circuit in case he needs to diagnose an issue quickly. The Racepak PDM kept the amount to +12v current down in the car by ground switching each circuit into the switch module. The PDM sees the ground inputs and we programmed the system to output however we wanted it. We were able to set the fuse limit of each circuit and set conditions for those outputs to activate. Shawn plans to race the car this year in the Global Time Attack series. Keep an eye out for more on the carbon fiber, wide body monster!
