Modx - Decreased flow rate

Post by xStatic » Wed Jul 09, 2014 8:36 am

Hi Guys

Got a weird issue from ODI this weekend...
I did my first 1km run and I exited @ approx 227km/h, when slowing down I had a bit of vibration on the front of the car (from my brakes - need to upgrade them soon)
The very next run I only did 206km/h and the car didn't feel too good thereafter all afternoon

Just viewed my logs now and I noticed that on the 206km/h run the car was only flowing at a peak of 173g/s, usually it flows around 195 g/s on Modx
The rest of the 1/4 mile logs shows a max flow rate on one of the runs at 176g/s for the rest of the afternoon so obviously something is not right...

Just wanted to know what could cause the sudden decrease in flow rate? Im not too technically clued up so any help on what I could look for will help :lol:

I cleaned the BMC filter about 3 months back and only did about a 1000kms since then....
None of the induction piping seems lose as I thought that vibration could have loosened something...

That is a top speed 227km. I think Avish only exits 225 (correct me if i am wrong) on the 1km so that is flying.

yas i think your MAF is dirty

Unlikely sensors will get dirty from one run to the next. Probably popped a clamp off.
