Neil, I modified a boat cable that I salvaged.  Will be working on getting the Inovate data logging up and running---I am beginning to get really pumped---we will be on the salt in 2 weeks--

Neil,  I forgot,  imagine a guy my age doing that  :cry: 

I bought several mounting brackets and other hardware as well as special length fire cable from these guys

California Push-Pull Inc. 
push-pull.com    530-893-4060  they have lots of little trinkets that make things easier or better

sorry

Neil, you might also check with Chuck's Speed Center here in Phoenix. At one time they made custom length cables and had ends and things. (602) 266-5101

Sum has been a great help with me getting my sr. brain around this data logging install --

-as with most automotive Electrical stuff it is usually the grounds that cause problems---this Innovate stuff is not internally grounded.. we are getting there though

"We are getting there though" 

Andy, John, and I  had a pretty good day in the shop ---Sum would have had a better day in his shop--- if I had not been on the phone to him asking about --wiring the aux battery -- so that it has an automatic battery cut off switch powered by  the car system  ie on bat disconnect kills both to comply with the rules!!

Well are we moving toward the problems Mike has in S. A. ie power outages---we have had 2 days in a row--- here it could be

1.  Drug Cartels
2.  Domestic Terrorism ---not former Vets I may add
3.  Heat/AC  overload

do not laugh ---we have had all three in the last 6 weeks----at various places in AZ.  Here in Phoenix  I sure hope it is because of the electrical load---but only The Shadow knows for sure!!  :roll:

Special thanks to Sum for his coaching and to Wayneo--for his attitude adjustment inspiration about brackets!!!

No problem, I think it is good though that you are working with 12 volts and not 120 or 240  :-D 8-) :evil:.

The relay is packed and will go out in the morning,

 :-D   :-o   :?  Well we made progress  I learned to day from Sum that Innovate has different types of signals---some go to the various boxes and some go through them  the wire different.

I bracket raced today---I built a battery mounting tray and mounted it under the front Fire bottle---8# 140" in front of the CG in front of the frt axle---so that will help spread the CG from the CP  we will be we should be ready to load the car Sunday afternoon for the test and tune---we hope to pull out of here the afternoon of the 9th

 look forward to being on the salt.  I will order a egt probe tomorrow .
