Lap time details

Second full event with the car. Lots of things to work on yet (for me the driver, not the car) but the last session I was consistent. Got out for a session without much traffic and held about 7 laps within 1/2 to 3/4 of a second of each other, all around the 1:39.00 mark.

I'm using RaceChrono for now to get some data. Not too bad of an app, going to try out Harry's and see how that works. Some skews in the acceleration data made me brush off some of my Matlab skills from college to correct.

The random drops to '0' for vehicle speed are loss of GPS. Planning on picking up an external unit to use. Also, I'm on 300TW tires so I'm assuming that anything over ~1g on lateral acceleration is pretty optimistic. Certainly the random outliers way out there are just sensor noise but there's still a significant number of points around ~1.1g so who knows.
