    Default I went to WSIR to test the Solo DL and did some drifting, too....

    I went to Willow Springs on Tuesday to test out my new AiM Solo DL and SmartyCam set-up. After a bit of tweaking I got it working well. Now I just need to figure out the data acquisition analysis software. It is not the most intuitive.

    KJ Christophier from Cal Club was shooting some video from the Budweiser Balcony. In the last session my tires were totally done and he shot some video of my burning off my tires on Turn Three and the Omega. It was fun:


    This one is a little better on technique:


    I will post in-car video in a couple of days so you can see what the SmartyCam video looks like. I will also post a review of the Solo DL after I figure out more about the software.

    I'm really curious to see the data acquisition. That'll probably be my next mod.

    I just bought a Solo DL to do data logging in my S2K. About 5 mnutes later, I blew up the S2K. Shucks . . .

    Oli,

    If you come up with "how to's" or tricks to make the solo work or RS2 manipulations can you post them here:
    Aim solo "how to"
