GMX5 – AiM Configurations

Global MX-5 Cup cars include the AiM MXL-2 data system.. Data Configuration files for the AiM system can be selected and downloaded from the list below.  The file you need is dependent on the particular features you have added to your car.  (Note that all configuration files below are used after the GEMS ECU has been updated to firmware version 01L30 as specified in Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) #2-28-17A.)  

Always update the RaceStudio3 software prior to updating configuration files to ensure the latest ECU drivers are being used.  The latest RaceStudio3 software can be downloaded at the AiM website.

Configuration files for use with AiM Race Studio v3.14.00 and later are below:

AiM Config v9.0 – Basic Configuration: GMX-5 GEMS 01L30V6.5 Basic V9.0, downloaded

AiM Config v9.1 – Basic Configuration with Pit Lane Speed Limiter added per TSB #2-28-17C: GMX-5 GEMS 01L30V6.5 Pit Speed Basic V9.1 

AiM Config v9.2 – Basic Configuration with Transmission Temperature, Oil Temperature, Oil Pressure and Water Pressure added per TSB# 2-28-17B and TSB# 07-06-2017: GMX-5 All Temps V9.2

AiM Config v9.3 – Basic Configuration with Transmission Temperature, Oil Temperature, Oil Pressure, Water Pressure and Pit Lane Speed Limiter added per TSB# 2-28-17B, TSB# 07-06-2017and TSB #2-28-17C: GMX-5 GEMS 01L30v6.5 Pit Speed All Temps V9.3

Configuration files with ABS Error Alarm and Pit Speed Limiter CAN Outputs removed for use ONLY on Chassis Dyno:

AiM Config v9.4 – Dyno Only Basic Configuration with Transmission Temperature, Oil Temperature, Oil Pressure, and Water Pressure TSB# 2-28-17B, and TSB# 07-06-2017: GMX-5 GEMS 01L30v6.5 DYNO ONLY

AiM Config v9.5 – Dyno Only Basic Configuration; GMX-5 GEMS 01L30V6.5 DYNO ONLY 

AiM Dyno Config –  The ABS Error Alarm is removed for the dyno configurations because the ABS error will trigger when the rear wheels are moving and the front are not, and this warning blocks the temperature information on screen.

The Pit Speed Limiter CAN Outputs are removed because the extreme high wheel speeds that display during the ABS Error will trigger the pit speed limiter.
