DriftBox combines four products in one for just £465 :
The DriftBox Pro is for official competition judging, and communicates in real time to the judges via a radio telemetry system. This system is based on two GPS systems, with antennas placed in line on the roof of the car. Drift Angle is the difference between the Direction of travel and the Direction the vehicle is pointing.
The GPS system used is an RTK system, which gives an accuracy of 0.25 degrees, 0.1km/h and 0.01G.
As a result of the development of DriftBox Pro, Racelogic have been able to use this experience to produce DriftBox.
How Does DriftBox Work?
DriftBox is equipped with an MMC/SD Flash memory card socket.
This allows 10Hz logging of Time, Distance, Speed, Position, G-force,
Lap Times, Split Times, and Drift Angle.
DriftBox as a Drift Analyser
Until now, the drift angle had to be estimated, but with DriftBox the guesswork has been removed, allowing much fairer comparisons to be made between competing drivers. Not only does DriftBox give feedback on angle, but also entry speed and cornering G-force. This information is displayed to the driver, and can also be transmitted to the judges and spectators in real time using the optional Racelogic telemetry system.
Racelogic have been involved in professional Drifting for over 2 years, working very closely with the Japanese D1 Professional Drift Grand Prix Series. The DriftBox has been tested and used by the world's best drifters, from Japan, America, England and Europe.
DriftBox as a Performance Meter
DriftBox uses a GPS system with an update rate of 10 samples per second, which is the fastest GPS engine in its class. From this you get a very accurate speed (±0.1kmh), cornering g-force, acceleration g-force and a very accurate distance measurement (±10cm in 400m).
Using DriftBox as a performance meter could not be simpler, you connect it to your cigar lighter socket, wait a few seconds to get GPS lock, put it into 'Performance Mode' and drive!
To swap between the 6 different performance meter screens, simply press the up and down arrows.
Performance ranges and units are fully user adjustable, which means if you want to measure a specific acceleration or deceleration range, for example 35-65, then this is very easy to do.
Performance meter features
kmh or mph
DriftBox as a Lap Timer
Setting it up is very easy and only has to be done once. Just put DriftBox into setup mode, and drive over the point you wish to define as the start/finish line. This point is then converted into a line at 90 degrees to your direction of travel, and stored in the internal memory.
DriftBox as a Data Logger
To use the Data-logging, simply insert the 64Mbyte SD card (which gives up to 10 hours of logging) and drive. Once you have finished the test, either plug the DriftBox into a PC via the USB cable provided, or remove the SD card and place it in a suitable reader.
Full Data Logging Software
The data is then read into the DriftBox Tools software, which is installed from the CD supplied. This software allows graphical analysis of acceleration, braking, cornering and lap times. You can overlay up to four files, and you get an accurate track map to compare your driving line between different laps. Make no mistake, this is not just token data-logging, this is the real deal!
