Does A Racelogic VBOX Sim Make You Faster In Sim Racing?

By Kireth | Jul 24, 2022

As an avid racing enthusiast, I am constantly seeking ways to improve my driving skills, both in sim racing and in real life. I've tried various methods, from competing against highly skilled racers to analyzing footage from sim racing and karting sessions. But today, I'm excited to share with you how I've taken my driving analysis to a whole new level with the help of cutting-edge technology – the VBOX Sim from Racelogic.

The VBOX Sim is a telemetry analyzer package that plugs into both your PC and your race car, providing real-time data on your performance. In my recent session, I used it to track my driving in Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC), specifically in a Ferrari at Monza. This track and car combination is one I'm very familiar with, having spent countless hours racing in this exact setting.

As I raced through the 10-minute hot stint session, the VBOX Sim recorded the data and provided me with a live delta feed. This allowed me to see precisely where I was gaining or losing time compared to my previous laps. After completing my session, I dove into the telemetry software to analyze the data and uncover insights into my driving performance.

By comparing my two final laps, I was able to identify specific areas where I could improve. For instance, in turn one at Monza, I realized that I needed to apply 100% braking force to maintain control and avoid carrying too much speed into the apex. Additionally, I discovered that I needed to focus on late apexes in Lesmo One to open up the exit and avoid running wide.

The software also helped me understand the importance of trail braking in certain corners, such as Parabolica. By bleeding off the brakes while turning, I could achieve better rotation and set myself up for a more efficient exit.

The VBOX Sim's telemetry analysis not only provided me with valuable insights into my driving performance, but it also allowed me to understand my driving style better. By comparing my data with that of faster drivers, I could see the specific areas where I needed to adjust my approach.

I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with this advanced technology, and I am excited to continue refining my driving skills using the VBOX Sim.
