Anyone able to get the GearSplit program to work under Windoze XP?. I tried getting it to run with the "Windoze Compatibility Wizard" to no avail. I would prefer not to run it under my "V4/VGC laptop"   angry

I have it running on two xp machines, main computer and laptop with no problems or capatibility problems.
 
 I would uninstall and reistall it without using windows compatibility wizard. I just installed it without any problems.
 
 Let me know how you turn out, and I will put up a help forum for the Gearsplit program where questions and answers and be setup and remain there.

Jon, it wouldn't even install on that machine. argh!!!
 
 Well as luck would have it. It loaded flawlessly on my other XP machine. Looks like a windows reinstall on this one, but then again the beer is closer to the other machine...decisions decisions.....

It's a very fascinating program. And the fact that we can plug in our own numbers makes it more valuable. And with our own forum here we would be able to give new users numbers that we have come up with or added. I have already added the three transmissions that fit my truck. Now I just need to figure out how to get the aerodynamic coefficient of my truck, "brick" isn't an acceptable input  Smiley

yeah a brick isnt a good one, there should be some published reports that can get you very close with your  application.

As a quick side note here. Many programs when installed will replace the shared .dll files on your computer with a version of their own that should work ok with Windows and their program. That is generally the reason you have to reinstall Windoze. Not because it failed but because another program changed it. All this program does on install is check to see if you have the Borland database admisitrator installed or not. If it does not have it it will install it other wise it just adds to the list of installed databases.
 
 The one thing the documentation may not allude to but might be obvious is that you can add to the lists of transmissions in gear manager and then add the appropriate gears that are available for the differnt gear positions. Take a look at the 'Gear manager' function and you will see what i mean. I did not think of it at the time but under gear manger you could add an enry for Winters Quick change and then list all the drop gears available. Unfortunately you will not be able to drag and drop it into the drop gear box as that was never anticipated but you will have a handy reference of the available quick change gears and whether you have a set on hand or not. Same goes for a Jerico or Tex Racing but that gets tougher as they have a very hard way of keeping track of the gear ratios as one entry will affect another unlike a Hewland for the most part..

Is there anyone interested in a coastdown test program to help find the Cd of vehicle?
 
 Free if it will be used. on another note it was mentioned that the cost of this software is split between Jon Amo and myself with landracing.com getting 50% of the proceeds to help him keep this site going and up to date.
 
 On another note a lot of help was provided by Mayf from the landspeed list as well. he helped a lot with getting the math straight..

Dave I'd love to see a coast down program... Beckett and I have talked about it several times... but if it's much past getting correct change the math can be a bit overwhelming...

I would love to have the ability to use a coastdown program. I know Banks used one and makes mention of it on his site.
