What did you use for the overlay in the first video? I would like something like that for when im auto x'ing. that way I can see what type g's I pull and the speed for the corners.

If you have an iphone, you can use harry's lap timer. If you have an android you can use trackmaster, but integrating the video overlay is more problematic.

The g-meters are with the phone's internal accelerometers, so it's decent. The speed and position is mostly through GPS, and most phones only sample gps data at 1hz. It's decent for overall lap times on a track, but not great for much else, and might not be accurate enough for autox. The speed is basically worthless. It'd be better to mount your camera behind your headrest so you can see your speedometer. You can get standalone gps sensors to work with harry's but they aren't great and it's kind of complicated. you can get standalone 5-10hz gps to work with trackmaster pretty painlessly.

I use a Dual Universal GPS receiver that works via Blue Tooth and is painless, just turn it on. Useing that and Harry's lap timer it's pretty accurate. Great for lapping days on tracks but I have not had success at Auto-X

cool vids, I see Harry's lap timer is now available for Android. I'll have to give it a shot.

Are you still running the AD08 tires? I like them quite a bit, albeit I run a slightly different size: 265 f / 275 r

very nice, i will have to give the R's a try on the next tire change. I've looked at other potential dual duty tires like RE11s but reviews always bring me back to the AD08's.

Putting them to good use at NJMP:

there's not that many around here either, I'll occasionally see one at the track, but it's rather rare. More often it's a 350.

Cool wheels btw, Advans ?
