I came across this Arduino project on the iRacing forums and decided to give it a try. It looked like it would be a BIG help in any races that require a fuel stop.

iRacing Arduino Pit Board: http://members.iracing.com/jforum/posts ... 26740.page


It has some similarities to iSpeed but has extra features which would make it worth the $20 in hardware.

After what felt like two months, I finally took delivery of my Bandgood UNO & TFT display.

Plugged the display into the board.

Installed the libraries, uploaded the sketch, and stuffed it into the box it was shipped in.

Works great! :)

Congratulations on making me to go 'banggood.com' at work. Now I'm probably on a HR list. :lol:

Just what you needed Scott, another screen to look at while driving. Must look like NASA flight control in your house. :lol:

Neat project. Always wondered how hard it was to use the iracing SDK to get data from the sim but that python code looked to be fairly straightforward.

Does it automatically change between screens or do you have to press something to get it to bring up the next screen?

Yes, it will automatically change screens when you enter / exit pit lane. Although that video is a pre-release version of the software.

I have another two Ardunio projects on my radar. This is only the beginning. LOL
