Default Documenting a misfire

The car was a Subaru, the cause carbon tracking.

These were shot with a D200 set to 5 fps, 50mm lens.




cropped shot




These last two I reversed the 50mm straight to the D200 body to get higher magnification,
it was hand held so detail suffers, but still interesting to see how electricity travels.

Charlie,

this is not only clever and educational but also esthetically fascinating. So what's the story behind these pictures. How did it come about?

Asher

Well the misfire was happening very frequently, about once every one or two seconds and I happened to have my camera with me so I figured why not try to catch it.

It would be interesting to try this in a controlled environment as opposed to on a running car.

Excelent Charlie, nicely found. I hope you stayed at least abit away form the HT!

I've just had a new coil pack on my Peugeot to correct a mjisfire above 3800 rpm. Drives nicely again now.

Mike
