REALLY nice over the long haul to see lap after lap in real time how your times are. It was a 6 hour race so consistency really mattered. I had to rely on really poor signaling from the pits. Lol.
As for being in intermediate, you're probably right! LMAO

As for TPS and lean angle, absolutely! It's cool being able to compare all sorts of data, like wheel speeds vs TPS, etc... Like that dip I showed exiting T8. Those are little things that you wouldn't really remember after the session but is a critical thing to realize.

I think this thing will be extremely beneficial. I'm going to do a blog post on this where I'll get into some "how to's" for anyone that has one. I have a number of friends that are computer illiterate but want one of these. So maybe some people will find it helpful.

Oh as for the lap times, yea you have a variety of options as to what you can view on the screen while active. You can see the obvious like rolling lap, last lap and best lap. But you can also have the option of "difference from best" and stuff. I haven't messed with that too much yet.

You can have up to 4 items on the screen at once. Although I found it a bit tough to view. I think 3 will be the best option, since one ends up in the middle and larger, which you can set as what you find as most important, like the last lap for easy visibility at a glance.

And yea, it seems they are extremely popular with karting. I spent a lot of time on youtube trying to learn about the data set up side of this and most of the videos were karting guys. Then a few car guys and even a couple drove channels. NO motorcycle people, not a one!

Being the car guy who lurks here because I use a ZX10R gen3 in my race car and having a lot of data acquisition I'm very excited to see this thread. I'm not nor have ever been a rider however have done some coaching of a rider at ThunderHill, it is surprising how much transfers.
At any rate I would really like to have some SOLO bike files from any track but particularly ThunderHill, Laguna Seca, Sears Point, ButtonWillow Auto Club Speed, Mid-Ohio, Road America, Daytona, Road Atlanta. I want to look at them compared to car files. Also want to see how the analysis techniques work on the bike data. If you have data you would be willing to share with me PM and I'll connect with email.

There is a Data Expert, John Block Auto-ware.com Auto-Ware (Autoware Inc) race car software data acquisition and engineering seminars for circle track, road racing, sports cars and muscle cars, engine, chassis and suspension, driver coaching who puts on webinars on data analysis specifically using AIL equipment. The webinars are inexpensive and very helpful.

It would be neat to see how the car data compares! I'm in Florida, so I might get some Daytona data this year, but I don't do any of those others...

Good info, thanks for sharing! I've been debating between sticking with my GX Pro or coughing up the bucks for the AIM Solo DL. I think I might have to smoke the plastic....again.

I had a GPX Pro, it was a friends. And I thought about keeping it, but it's data was limited. You had the internal data in the GPX, and then the external things like pots, which are AWESOME. But I wanted more, I like that the Solo takes in the data the bike itself already monitors.

I wish I was willing to spend the money and get the EVO, but I'm just not willing to spend the $$$ lol.

So I'm STILL struggling to get the data to sync correctly with the video. Anyone else using this?

Check out this video from the last trackday at JGP.


You can see, I have the starting point set so that it's sync'd up well at the beginning, but as you get into the 2nd lap or so, the data is moving faster than the video and therefore is ahead. But by then it comes back into sync and then even lags BEHIND the video...

WTF?!?!

Driving me nuts! lol

I'm using RaceRender and have had no luck on their forums.

I might set up a windows 7 machine so I can try DashWare.
