Buttonwillow 2013-10-19 + AiM Solo + Dashware

This is my third visit to Buttonwillow and the first time using the Solo & Dashware. The video exploits all of the cool things that you can do with the AiM Solo DL coupled with homegrown Dashware custom gauges.

Constructive criticism is encouraged, keep in mind that I just started tracking a couple of months ago.


Updated Video...

Changes & Additions for...
  • Fuel Remaining Gauge
  • Oil Temperature Gauge
  • AiM Solo DL emulation Gauge
  • Ambient Temperature Display
  • Mapping to Brake Pressure instead of negative G's
  • Removed KM/h Indexes from speedo






Original Video

Very nice quality video, sure beats my Iphone. haha Can't wait to get the Solo DL myself. Anyhow, you can carry some more speed into turn 1 (sunrise) and brake a little later. Don't brake going towards the Truck Stop right turn, just modulate your throttle. On Riverside, start 3/4 outside and go 1/2 in and then go towards the apex....you'll be able to carry more speed versus hugging the inside. I see you a sub 2:10 lap time in your next BW event.

Very nice. Where do you have go pro mounted? I use the mounting rod on the passenger seat headrest posts with 1080 in narrow mode, but I am seeing too much in cabin footage. You must have it mounted further toward the window.

Camera is mounted using the GoPro suction mount upside down. I can barely see it in the car and it's easy to reach over and turn it off and on. As you can see its pretty much at eye level in the car.

Thanks Tom.

Actually, the graphic for the steering wheel came from your website.


Somebody stop me

I added Air Temp to the cluster and made a Solo DL gauge for kicks.

Tom, I take partial credit for his new found track addiction (although not the big habit that I have though).

Afraid to ask what the big one is.

Should see you both at the track soon, once we get SEMA out of the way.

Have you evaluated the software? You can create gauges and controls using your own static images. I picked up the images for the Cluster & the steering wheel from the internet and fashioned them into controls using basics tools like MS Paint.
