I have hesitated from commenting on this thread, because I don't want to add insult to injury. It's a shame, as Traqmate was at the right price point for the SM crowd and when it worked years ago it was the best bang for the buck.
We have become an AIM dealer and would be happy to work with anyone on replacing their Traqmate with an AIM system. We have AIM MXL2 dash with SmartyCamHD in our SM and Spec Boxster. All of our new builds have AIM. We also do a lot of consulting and data support for clients, as well as full installs.
For SM we run lambda, oil pressure, water pressure, fuel pressure, water temp, brake, throttle, and probably a few other sensors I've forgotten.
We will be hosting another AIM seminar at our shop this winter. Working with Roger on dates. Any interest in the Sunday and Monday after the ARRC?
Feel free to email me - we can offer special pricing to SM racers wanting to switch over. todd AT atlspeedwerks ... com
If we were smart, with a number of people in the same boat, we should be looking to see if AIM would consider a group buy. I could see significant numbers making a change.
Then follow that up with another round of Live Chat or what ever we did last time to learn Data.
We could get Todd Lamb to do a seminar or someone from Aim or both.
Full disclosure: SMAC chairman, my opinions do not reflect anything to do with the SMAC unless specifically stated.
