That'd be my primary short term objective. Look at run #1, look at run #2, and put together a plan for run #3.
You get more from two drivers, but SoloStorm will show you where you lost time between two runs, so you can look at those areas and think about what you did better between the two. Then try to put a run together incorporating the best approaches to each element.

It takes a while to learn SoloStorm and to be able to utilize the data quickly between runs. So, give it some time. I’m definitely not an expert on it yet.

I was curious about Solostorm but the size of the 8" tablet running it and taking video would slow me down from all that added wind resistance.... :?

When I'm sorted put enough to actually run it, I feel like it's very helpful, even when I don't have a co-driver. I like to try different approaches to sections of the course that I'm not completely sure of the best method of attack and compare data between runs. I generally don't sync video at events

What I think I really need is something that overlays tire squeal db's with g forces so I can develop an ear for peak grip. :lol:

It is tough. You are taught that if the tire makes a certain pitch, it is unhappy and to back off. I haven't figured out how to listen for push on that tire. Sometimes it'll be screaming, but it'll take what you give. Sometimes it doesn't. I can't even tell if the car is pushy or loose.

Maybe I need to find a Hoosier car.

Steve.... You're welcome to hop in mine when the season starts back up.

I will have tires by then....lol


I've found that using SS is really beneficial when having a co-driver more than anything else. If we had TNT events, then THAT would be really great for a tool as well so you can see improvement.
I've not really used mine much when it's just me, but now that you can use the cloud and overlay others' runs, that helps too.

We will probably have a Test n tune again this year if the weather is good at our first event.

I always felts like I was a better Hoosier driver than street tires, though I don't think I've driven anything race tires in like 8 years.

I think I could do well in something relatively low powered in SP or P.

A t&t might be good for actually having a chance to practice messing with a camera and Solo Storm and other things I haven't dealt with in a while.

We should set up some sort of cloud sharing group or something... I haven't looked into how it works yet.

I know the guys running SSR national have the cloud share and they all put their runs in it for the others to compare with their own.
