Default Racepak short record

I have a Racepak sportsman that would not complete recording most of the run last year. On occasion I would get a complete record. Racepack could not explain the issue except possible EMI interference. I replaced plug wires and the Racepak SD card this year and I started getting complete recordings. Problem solved? This past weekend, out of 5 runs, two were not complete. Anyone experience this same issue?

are you shutting off the power to kill the engine at the end of the run?

Are the incomplete runs missing the beginning or the end of the run?

The incomplete runs are missing the end of the run.

Double check that the record time didn't get reset to a shorter amount of time. Also, when do you start your recording? during the burnout or just before the staging?

Have checked the record time and it has not changed. I Start recording just before staging. So far about 50% of my recordings have been short and not by the same amount. I compared the MB amounts.

Does the logger voltage also stop at the same time as the RPM stuff? If so, that means that the logger is losing power at that point. Where are you getting the power for the logger? Main battery switch, separate switch????? Does the recording stop at the same time on each of the incomplete runs?

I get the logger power off of the ignition on switch. The recordings do not stop at the same place. I check the file details for the size of the file and they are different. I check this to rule out the time I start the recording as different.

Are you saying that the ignition switch powers the logger or a switch that gets it's power from the ignition switch?
