As suggested by Chris thought it would be worthwhile to start a thread for those using the AIM MXS dashboard as there's a few of us starting to use them. Now if you buy the dash from westfield then you shouldn't have any problems as they supply a premade loom to connect between car and dash. Firstly fuel level. This has been the hardest thing to configure. In my trials and tribulations I've found you CANT use the westfield harness connections. You have to run 2 direct cables from the dash to the sender. You are supposed to be able to input the ohms in racestudio and it will suggest a pull up resistor value and you then create the sensor. However I couldn't get this to work either. So you need to wire like below. But use a 2.7kohm resistor instead of the 1k shown. Take the earth back to the analogue ground on the dash rather than earthing locally at the tank. I then took millivolt readings at empty and full and use these to programme the custom sensor. On the newer fw tank it was 30mv empty and 300mv full. Set the interval rate to 32 seconds and it now reads accurately and damps out the sloshes. Using the leds as warning lights. I only tried this earlier after David mentioned it and confirmed you could input 12v into the analogue inputs. Pretty straightforward. I wired directly from the dash warning feeds for the indicators into analogue 3 and 4. Then in racestudio set the alarm led to come on when the voltage is over 1000mv and set to continuous (so it flashes in sync with the indicators). At first I had set the voltage to be over 100mv but this must have been too low as both indicator lights would come on at the same time with either left or right on. That's my limited knowledge for now! Only other thing I've noticed is I've had to send the configuration through a couple of times on occasion before it's gone in properly.
After wanting to build and run a Westfield for over 20 years this past year I finally got chance to realise my dream but it is with a heavy heart I have to consider selling my freshly build Westfield. I have been offered a very nice 997 at a price I just can't resist and having known the car for sometime I cannot let this pass by if this sells. For anyone who is interested here is a link to the build thread : Build Thread All purchased new from Westfield June 2018 and the car has now covered 1000 miles with very very little in the way of teething problems. The car has completed one trackday at Blyton Spec : Registered 1/3/19 Electric Blue bodywork 2.0 Blacktop Zetec on Omex throttle bodies and fitted with a raceline sump. New style FW bodywork with no rear plate recess Sport turbo seats black with blue piping Mazda LSD Pro race 1.2 wheels 7" fronts, 8 " rears fitted with Nankang NS-2R's Westfield Hi-spec brake upgrade new front pads just replaced as the EBC's were not to my liking All LED lights front and rear AIM MXS Strada 1.2 Dash with AIM VIM kit Carbon - Dash, front wings, mirror covers, rear arch stone chip covers, diffuser and cage hole covers Genuine Aerocatch bonnet catches OMP Trecento wheel with quick release column TRS 4 point harnesses 8 channel Freewheel setup with wheel backplate (although I am only using 4 of the channels MSA safety devices cage Only ever seen Vpower fuel through its very short life ! Protech Trackday adjustable dampers Perpsex side wind deflectors Full silicone hoses. Full Geo and corner weight setup at Playskool motorsport less than a month ago. The only addition I was going to consider is some stiffer rear springs as if your lardy like me when two up the car feels way to soft at the rear. Oil changed for Quality 5/30 fully Synthetic ester oil around 600 miles. I have another 5 litres of 5/40 and a few oil filters that will come with the sale All bodywork and wheels were machine polished and had a Gyeon ceramic coating applied at the end of the build making it very hydrophobic. This kit was built with the intention of me keeping it many years (or until I could afford a 997 911!) so everything has been done to the greatest of my ability and with no corners cut on the spec I wanted, It really saddens me to even post this up but the wife has signed off on a 911 and knowing her mood swings I need to grab this by the balls. Any inspection welcome - viewing can be arranged most days or evenings - You can contact via phone or via PM on here.
