00:00 - I'm Zac from High Performance Academy and I'd like to welcome you to our Professional Motorsport Wiring Harness Construction Course.
00:06 This course builds on the knowledge presented in both the Wiring Fundamentals Course and the Practical Club Level Wiring Harness Construction Course.
00:14 It assumes that you have a solid understanding of the concepts presented there.
00:19 If you haven't yet taken those courses, I strongly suggest that you do so before proceeding.
00:23 Designing and building your own motorsport wiring harness can be an immensely satisfying task to undertake and performing the work yourself allows you to have complete control over the process.
00:34 You'll know exactly how the wiring harness runs through the vehicle, how it branches out and every connection made to each individual electronic component.
00:42 If you're prepared to take the time to learn the process of motorsport wiring, practice the design and practical techniques and you're patient, you will be able to produce an end result that is better than the majority of professionally constructed wiring harnesses.
00:57 In how the harness physically fits the vehicle, its ease of install, and its reliability.
01:02 Perhaps you're a home enthusiast wanting to challenge yourself and take your wiring skillset to the next level or a professional motorsport workshop wanting to bring your harness construction process in house instead of relying on others.
01:14 Either way this course is going to be perfect for you.
01:17 Constructing a wiring harness to a professional motorsport level is not a particularly difficult task and it can be easily understood and achieved by most enthusiasts.
01:26 It does require substantial planning however, attention to detail, and the ability to think through the entire process.
01:34 Once you gain some experience and master the individual elements, you'll be able to construct a wiring harness that is easy to install, attractive and has a long service life.
01:43 For the novice harness builder, constructing a wiring harness to a professional motorsport level is like many other aspects of the motorsport world.
01:50 It initially seems overwhelming and daunting.
01:53 A missed connection or a slip with the flush cutters could mean hours of extra work and expensive wastage of materials.
02:00 We remove this fear with the HPA 10 step process presented in this course.
02:05 This process breaks the harness construction down into 10 manageable tasks, each of these tasks in its own right is relatively straightforward and as they're completed in order, your harness design, documentation, and then physical construction will appear before your eyes.
02:20 More importantly you will have the confidence that your design decisions are correct and the physical harness is perfectly suited to your application.
02:28 This course is broken down into three individual sections.
02:32 In the first section we discuss the key design techniques and skills you'll need to apply to your harness build.
02:38 In the second we visit the key practical construction skills you'll need to be familiar with.
02:43 We'll also discuss how and why the techniques we use at a professional motorsport level differ from those we would use for a modified street car or a club day track car.
02:52 Once you've completed these sections, we'll move onto the 10 step process, and show it being applied to a real harness build for a real project.
03:00 As time goes on, we'll add to this library of worked examples so if your particular application isn't catered for right now, don't worry as there is a good chance we'll be covering it in a future worked example which you will have immediate access to with no extra charges.
03:14 This course will focus on harness construction for a high level professional motorsport vehicle.
03:19 The concepts presented are universal to any professional motorsport application.
03:24 Whether you have a seven second V8 powered drag car, an off road buggy, or a salt flats high speed record setter, the lessons this course teaches will be applicable.
03:34 This course does not cover the configuration and tuning of engine management systems.
03:40 While we have a brief discussion of some of the knowledge required for engine tuning, it will only be as it pertains to our harness design decisions and documentation.
