    Not that hard of a build, just a lot smaller than a buggy frame and uses a soldering iron instead of a tig welder Programming for a crotch rocket engine will be a whole differnet deal though. :wink:

    I agree, the building of the unit would be a snap as long as there were decent instructions (I work at a electronics place ) but setting it up and programing it and tieing it in to all the sensors afterwards would be where I am sure I would get lost.

    This is very interesting and could bring DIY black-box technology to the mini scene. Very cool.

    Best of all is that you make it sound within reach of our skill set.

    Thanks Tim!

    I also love the idea of being able to increase the power and torque of our motors,just way beyond my knowledge in the programming dept. I do volenteer my rail and motor for further testing tuning purposes if you would like. It is a cbr900rr carburated model though. :cry:

    Ditto from me too!!!

    Keep us updated. This is very interesting. Hey at least no one from this board has gone on another forum and portrayed this as being their idea, yet.
    Pretty discouraging when you see that crap going on.

    c'mon, tex--I found out about the megasquirt back in 2000 when I was flying giant scale RC planes (mine was "little" since it only had an 80cc engine, and a 100" wingspan). I was thinking about using EFI for an airplane engine, since throttle response is so critical to aerobatics. So of course I thought of it first!!! :lol: I just haven't tried it yet! :roll:

    Well I am sure I didn't think of it first. I don't even know if I'd be the first to try it. Nor do I really care to be honest. I am learning a lot and having fun doing it so I plan to just keep my head down, ignore any flack and concentrate on getting it done. I'll drop a few summary posts and pics along the way in case some brave soul decides to plow the same path sometime in the future. Tim

    On crotch rocket engines? Really! Can you point me to a post please, that would be very helpful if someone has solved some of the fuel map issues already. I couldn't find any. Or are you referring to the car engine stuff? Definintely nothing new about DIY injection systems and turbo's, that's for sure. Cheers! Tim
