Here is my best lap at 2:27.. I was being chased by sawzall which perhaps was the motivating factor, you can see him blast by just at the end



Sorry about the shaky video, seems the autofocus wasn't locked on my iPhone...

Nice overlay! Is Race Renderer synching video and GPS data automatically (not sure it's even possible)? I always find it challenging to synch it manually.

Thx! Race Renderer is not automatic but you do have a nice selection of overlays etc. You have to import the video and data and then sync it. Its pretty easy. With the Solo DL you can also log ECU data which I plan to do this weekend at Calabogie. If you want automatic then a SmartyCam or Video Vbox would be the best bet. I will post a few more of my videos when I get a chance to do them. I am hoping to also use a Smartycam this weekend as well so I will be sure to post that up as well.

Who's going to Calabogie on August 3-4? I'll be there, and hopefully with a set of r-comps on!

LOL - Hopefully you can make it out! May need to do some negotiating with the wife myself since we have a race the weekend before and I am off after that weekend as well!

Hah - as much as I'd like to claim responsiblity, I've learned my lesson after the haunting from Half Shell! Besides, I like to restrict my on-road animal encounters to shell based animals and bugs...

Yup, we'll be at the highlands. I think we'll also be BBQ'ing rather than going to the restaurants. It'll be healthier, and a break from the monotony.

OK, just called 1-877-224-4653 and booked myself a Jacuzzi room so I will be staying at the Highlands too. The Peaks is actually fully booked that weekend, so any of you who has not yet booked accommodations may want to get on it ASAP.

You mean that crappy transmission that they pretty much had to entirely replace because of all the problems it was having? Well, if you're asking about that one, yup, it was a DCT!
