I'll be getting Racelogic's vbox sport for next year. It's controlled with any IOS device so it's pretty user friendly, works with Harry's Laptimer and other track time apps, 20hz internal GPS, automatically starts logging when you get above like 2mph so if you're forgetful like me you won't lose a session from forgetfulness. It's not the cheapest solution but IMO it's the most user friendly solution that requires the least amount of setup and attention, I'd rather take time to focus on setting up the car and not worrying that telemetry stuff is working properly or having to troubleshoot that but I'm also technologically retarded so others may not see the value in it.

Pair it with a cheap gopro and you can get some decent overlays with accurate telemetry.

when choosing data, make sure you pay attention to the file format. Its always nice to be able to have files that can be analyzed/compared/shared etc easily, which is why my recommendation is almost always AiM. the solo/solo2 are quick and dirty and provide good high quality data.

I've only briefly looked at the AiM stuff. How easy is it to overlay the data file it exports onto a video?

you can export the data to csv file to be import into race render for video overlap.

Okay that's easy enough. I'd really like to get the DL model as the extra info would be awesome and I'm pretty fluent with excel so I usually make pivot tables and graphs out of data whenever I can. Unfortunately the DL is a good bit more expensive so that'll probably have to wait for another time.

i'm not sure if the DL will work with Evo 8/9 unless you get external sensors. DL are meant to use with CAN protocol, so they work with Evo X. i have a DL for my RX8, along with smarty cam HD. no more post processing for data overlap on video.

The older DL works with the Evo VIII/IX since I tracked with folks who used it on their Evos. The newer DL supports over 1000+ different ECU protocols per their own documentation. Don't see why they would have pulled support on that one. I only didn't buy the DL because at the time I was using it in both the kart and the Evo. I shoulda gotten the DL....

Edit: Video from one of our own members here showing it in use on an older Evo:

Hi folks, didn't know this thread existed. Below are some of my fast lap videos at various southern California tracks.

I have the following mods:
ST-43 Front Pads/DS2500 Rear Pads
Girodisc Front Rotors/Stock Rear Rotors
Whiteline Front and Rear Sway Bars (Front at full stiff, rear at medium)
Ohlins Road & Track Coilover 10kF/10kR (lowered 3/4" front and 1/2" rear) - Car is not corner balanced, zero toe all around
OEM tire size -Falken 615K+

I kept the car bone stock and stock weight, my goal is to build a stock powered Evo only using suspension upgrades. I want to keep the stock reliability, while maintaining comfort for the streets. I think my next mod is wider rims + 265/35 tires.

I have no idea how to embed videos on here it would good if someone can tell me how.

Streets of Willow (1:27.14)

Buttonwillow (2:07.1)

Chuckwalla (2:07.2)
