    Thanks again for the vids Goober... warts/burps and all.

    It was interesting the number of "little crest" calls in one of the vids which it was hard to tell what they were for.. and then you got some air on the very next vid on another "little crest".

    I gather you don't have a terratrip installed.. but is it stopwatch on the far of the dash?

    Hope you and your Nav get into a good rhythm soon :)

    All the best in the rally, look like fun!

    Tell us about the HANS device, Goober.

    Think it'd drive me crazy being restricted to that degree.

    sifi or goober, can you run us through the pace notes.

    the number before Right, ie 9right, is the higher the number the faster the corner?
    and then sometimes you say 9 right 150.... is the 150 the distance or a speed indication?

    cheers

    Hey Mr Dee Jay....
    The flappy paddle gearbox looked like it was an advantage... matching revs perfectly, but far less time to shift, and you arent taking eyes/hands off the wheel....

    Is the Ferrari good for midrange torque?

    The higher the number the faster/straighter the corner.The 150(for your example) is the distance,sometimes,as Simon demonstrates,the driver needs to be told the info repeatedly as the driver(if competitive) is on it and can only take in so much info do to the concentration necessary.

    correct, i tend to go into a zone when driving (insane zone) but there is only so much of the "use the force Luke" that one can take in at any one time, maybe someone more intelligent with a higher IQ could process more info.
    When Simon loses his place on the notes my response is always "lets just go for a drive" and drive so that if i can see the road then we go hard, if the road cant be seen then its time to sit and relax.

    Wow. Both seats are very stressful. Been waiting to have a look at these since my laptop went down.

    Definitatley looks like fun. Goober you are very relaxed. Simon did a great job as well. Look forward to Classic Adelaides vidoes.

    Again thanks for sharing. :)

    Losing your place is the pits.. the reliable GPS system I used for past few years in Classic Adelaide with me doing nav duty showed the benefits of such a system with anything less than a pro level nav in the seat.

    Having such a system introduces more technology for example, screen, cables, PC and software.. all of which are going to add more points of failure but the system didnt blip at all in mounted to bare metal floor of 911 in hot weather etc.. so pros outweight cons and to track your progress through stage without losing your place.. (GPS receivers these days damn good even in challenging gorge/foliage conditions to get and keep your location smoothly fixed)

    The nav duty I feel is to keep on top of notes and feed to driver how and when, and repeat as needed according to situation.. coming on screen doesnt detract from that important driver-nav link and just serves to give current info reliably to nav to have and to use without a mistake which is the ultimate aim.
