Vbox time!

Gents, my vbox came in on Friday

But I've spent all weekend trying to set up. It won't save anything

Can someone help me out?

No, I didn't register it yet, I will tonight though. The instructions are not very user friendly. I assume the 8 gb card is big enough to store the data though?

Nothing yet but taking a long weekend starting tomorrow.
Another question, is there like a video tutorial on how to use the interface? It's very intricate

In terms of saving run info, just make sure the SD card is pushed in so you hear and feel a "click". Then go find a safe place and log some of these:

0-60 and 40-80 don't interest me. I'm mostly concerned with 1/4 mile times to save me time and embarrassment at raceway park

If you work on the 0-60 time you won't be embarrassed at raceway park.
