Finally Road Testing The Blunik II Rally Computer

Today I got out on the road with the Blunik II rally computer.  I need to become familiar with this rally computer as I will be using it for the first time in the 2019 Rallye Monte Carlo Historique.  Recently I have been building a new 2-wire external wheel sensor for use with the Blunik II.  The picture below shows that new wheel sensor mounted on my Subaru Outback.

The shot below shows a closer view of the sensor showing the extended lug nuts, the rotating drive plate and the wheel sensor mounted to the rotating drive plate.  The sensor wire is routed to the inside of the car via the rear seat door on the driver’s side.

As my wife is the prime user of the Subaru Outback, I have to keep everything that I put in the car very portable and very removable.  To accomplish this I have mounted the Blunik II on one of my rally boards.  This works out well as I can have the rally computer instructions attached to the same rally board for easy reference.  The rally board sits on the passenger seat.

While I have been doing a significant amount of bench testing and familiarization with the Blunik II in my basement, it is great to get some on-the-road time with the Blunik II.  Watch out for me on the roads around Franklin!  I’ll be the guy pulling over to the side of the road at frequent intervals so I can read instructions and push buttons on the Blunik II.  I need to be very comfortable with this unit before I leave for Monaco and the 2019 Rallye Monte Carlo Historique.

If you have any comments or questions about the wheel sensor, the Blunik II or the Rallye Monte Carlo Historique, then please leave a comment below or you can send me a private email message at the following address: shanna12 at comcast dot net
