-So, what is the AiM SOLO?:
Solo is an automatic lap timer and
data logging mini-computer that uses GPS technology & built in
Accelerometer and can move from car-to-car without the need for
fixed or time consuming install.
-What is the AiM SOLO DL?:
DL is as
above, but with the addition of the ability to integrate to an
Engines ECU. Due to this, it has enhanced logging capabilities
because it can connect to almost any 1996 or later car ECU or
aftermarket standalone ECU to collect and log its data as well.
-What does it do for me?:
Solo locates its GPS position,
identifies the track from the internal list of the main world
tracks and starts automatically sampling lap times! It records this
and gives the driver feedback based on data it collects. If a track
isn't in the system (many are added online every day) then a track
can be mapped and the powerful features of the SOLO are at your
fingertips. Namely, using data feedback for improving driver skill
and car setup.
-So if the track/course is not in the database, I can create
If there is not a download available for your track or course, it
can be added by driving the circuit. Circuits, hill climbs,
regularity, point to point races, performance tests. Solo can fit all of these
situations with a simple configuration in the AiM Race Studio
Speed, accelerations, braking... all the details you need while
performance driving or racing, a powerful data review immediately
after and... no need for a track engineer. There are also no
complicated sensors and no expensive wirings into the car. This
Mini computer is a great leap into becoming a better driver, and
optimizing car-setup if your not ready for a several thousand
dollar investment, but are ready to enjoy the profound improvement
data-feedback can have on your driving.
At the smoking price of just $699 this tool is so much more
than a toy... its a must have for the driver who wants to improve,
and do so consistently at budget anyone can afford. We think that
this is the best value in the data acquisition
market period and after the first time with the SOLO
DL, you will too!
The AiM SOLO is AiM's newest data component and specifically
designed as the most cost-effective, feature rich data acquisition
solution on the market. When creating this product, the goal
was to produce a capture and replay solution that every DE
enthusiast, driving students, aspiring racers, or even the
professional coach could use. All goals to capture this market
are met: affordable, compact, easy to install, and easy to
use. We predict that this will become the new industry
standard in affordable gear that the armature must-have.
More than just a lap timer, much more... The SOLO is a full data
logger that not only shows the user how fast they are each lap, but
also provides the quantitative measurements to show just how to
improve your line, consistency, focus and other crucial driving
skills that are much easier to improve with feedback from data
Includes: software, user manual, screw-on
mounting bracket (suction window mount purchased separately), USB
power adaptor and USB cable, 2m lighter socket power cable, AiM
decal and AiM racing guide.
SOLO DL kits include either OBD II port or wire-in cable, but not
both; select the needed application above.
AiM Solo standard
High-speed GPS, internal accelerometers, expansive data logging
memory, USB download, a waterproof design, a thoughtful feature
set, and a retail price of $399 make for best motorsports lap timer
ever made. It's called Solo, and it's available now.
Predictive Lap Times- Arguably the best tool a driver can
have for getting faster—predictive lap times. Chisel down those lap
times and qualify better than you ever have before with the Solo's
predictive lap timing. A constantly updating real-time display of
your current lap pace. A time prediction resolved down to the
hundredth of a second - and incredibly accurate. Optionally you can
display a real-time +/- from your best lap time.
It's a Data Logger- The Solo records your lap times along
with speed, track position, lateral g-forces, linear g-forces, yaw
rate, heading, slope, satellite reception, and battery voltage.
Each channel recorded at a frequency of 10-times per second (10
Hz). All tests are stored with a time and date stamp for on-screen
review or PC download for further analysis. Download your Solo data
to the included full version of RaceStudio2, our professional data
Lap Data Review at Your Fingertips- Hit the Solo's memory
button when your session is over and up pops your best three lap
times, along with session data of duration and distance. Hit MEM
again and you get a full list of your lap times along with max
straight speed and minimum corner speed for each lap. A third data
review page shows a histogram view of your lap times where you can
identify patterns of driving or the tires coming in - or going
Data Analysis- Plot your Solo data over time or distance, xy
plots, track position, create histograms and more. Overlay any
number of laps from the same test of different tests. Correlate
your data to track position.
Track Mapping & Driving Line Analysis- Every lap you
drive is mapped with great precision, which not only allows you to
correlate data to track position, but also overlay maps to analyze
driving lines. Know exactly where you are gaining or losing
Split Times- One of the most useful tools for analyzing
driver performance and consistency is to break up the track into
several sections and analyze sector timing and standard deviation
within a test session. The Solo puts that powerful tool one click
away on your PC. The track is automatically split up into straights
and corners and a table provided with sector times for each and
every lap. It also strings together your "theoretical best" lap,
combining all your best sectors.
Performance Tests- 1/8th mile, 1/4 mile, and 0-60 MPH
performance test modes are built in to every Solo. Queue the Solo
up for a 1/4 mile pass and from a standing start mash the pedal and
keep it straight for 1320 feet - on a closed circuit or where
permissible by law of course. The Solo's smart looping memory
records a few seconds of staging, the pass, and about three seconds
of coast down. Immediately after the pass, the Solo display
provides you with a time slip, complete with your 60' time, 330',
1/8th mile split and speed, 1000', and your 1/4 mile ET with speed
at the finish line. A similar abbreviated time slip is displayed
for 1/8th mile tests.
The venerable 0-60 MPH test benchmark is just as easy to run, and
the on-screen review shows your 0-60 time, the distance traveled to
achieve 60 MPH, along with the 0-20 and 0-40 MPH splits and
No Beacon Needed- GPS lap timing means not having to place a
beacon trackside for lap times. It also means there’s no beacon to
forget. There’s twenty-four lap timing satellites orbiting the
earth - always on, and no batteries to replace.
Big Bold Display- The Solo displays your lap times in
numbers just under an inch in size, even aging eyes have no problem
4 Hour Battery- The Solo's internal lithium-ion battery will
keep the Solo running for about 4 hours with the backlight on.
Otherwise, a 12V connection to vehicle power keeps it charged and
running off the vehicles battery.
(*Note that the Solo is not NHRA or IHRA legal for event use.
The Solo provides real-time track position in both time and feet -
info that your not supposed to see and might get you in trouble at
a NHRA or IHRA event, or ejected at the very least.)
