First rain session - slippery A048s

Had a great time at Ridge motorsports park. Track was empty due to the rain all day.

First rain drive for the car, was quite a handful. The A048's never warmed up, even after 10 laps, cold to the touch. Also I have a very stiff/dry setup which didn't help... but had a lot of fun sliding around


Cheers

Very slippery!

What lap timer app are you using? Do you like it?

Why does it look like your tach needle is jumping instead of being smooth? It reminds me of the old chrono tachometers.

I'm using just Harrys laptimer app on a Samsung Note, it is ok... I think it needs a 10hz gps receiver, though I was not going for laptimes that day so don't know how accurate it is with just phone gps.

Not sure about the tach, when do you see it.. is it during downshift perhaps?

Cheers

Maybe I am seeing things but I see it any time it is changing (accelerating and braking). Looks like it is changing at ~2hz. Watch the video full screen and just look at the tach.

Can someone else confirm if they see this too?
