PAGE LAYOUTS enable you to view
many channels of data on one screen. On this page we have air/fuel
ratio for all 8 cylinders of a Winston Cup motor shown in bar graphs
on the left. The bar graphs are arranged as if you were viewing the
engine “from above”. Obviously, this is particular data is arranged
for a Ford engine. The average air/fuel Ratio for the left and right
side cylinders are also shown in bar graphs as well as the average for
the whole motor. (These averages are formulated using the Math
facility in TM)

- THE MAP PLOT
IN THE LOWER RIGHT shows
throttle position and fore/aft G superimposed on a map of the track.
This type of plot (unique to TM 2000) is a quick, easy to understand
picture of where the driver can pick up the throttle and where he must
back off. Also shown on this map plot are markers of average air/fuel
ratio for the 4 main sections of the track. Map markers can be easily
set up for any variable in TM.
- THE XY PLOT
in the upper right shows average air/fuel
for the right side cylinders in blue, with the left side in green. The
graphs are plotted against Engine RPM, and show how drastically the
air/fuel ratios change as the engine pulls through its RPM range.
These plots illustrate how easy it is to boil down “data” into the
easy to see “answers” that we really need.
