    Don’t forget you can slow the playback down to as slow as 25% speed if you are hopin to watch game film of your cars. I do that a lot of I need to look for something before edited playback videos come out. It’s usually a bit before guys can get those posted.

    Hey Jimmy,
    You must be talking to someone else,
    I'm not sure I want to watch that beat down again. It's already burned in my memory. Ha

    Real simple... its in settings. So if you are looking at PC and have a video playing, look along the bottom row of icons. You will see the cog wheel that is "settings". Click on that and a few options pop in a box. One of them is "Playback Speed". Click that and you can go in 25% increments slower down to only 25% of normal speed and faster up to 2x normal speed. On most phone YouTube apps, look at top left of video and you will see the 3 little dots. Click those for the same settings options.
    It's nice in that you can slow the video down to see the wiggle better. Sometimes your wiggle issues may be so slight it's hard to see at normal speed but slow it down and you can see that little car's arse wiggle away. You can use this to see if your wiggle starts right away, just at or after transition, how intermittent it may be. Then you can analyze what may be adding to that effect such as paying attention to what lanes it wiggles in most (often middle lanes) and in what kind of traffic. For those of us who don't have a track this helps us know if we might need more or less steer or help us to be wary of other issues like big gaps. Like if you see your car has no wiggle whatsoever and is rock steady yet slower than you thought, maybe you have too much steer for your particular car.

    Game film is a nice tool to use.

    LOL!!! Actually I am addicted to game film. Maybe I'm just a glutton for punishment! Each race for my Box Stock I've probably watched a dozen times each or more. Call me obsessive. lol

    Hey Jimmy,
    I watched it again in slow mo, I lost.
    I can't keep my eyes closed long enough, I can still see the beating.
    I'm going to Amazon, see if I can find some of this glutton stuff you speak of. Maybe it will help.
