Maximizing your Simboostr experience: A user guide

Welcome to the next installment of our introductory series on Simboostr! In this blog, we'll guide you through the key actions to ensure you're getting the most out of our software. Whether you're a pro or just getting started, these simple steps will help you unlock the full potential of Simboostr and elevate your simracing performance to new heights. Let's dive in!

How to use Simboostr to improve your driving technique

  1. Drive 5-10 laps on the track where you want to get better. Make sure to drive more than 1-2 laps, as you need time to adjust to the track and the handling of the car. In the background, the Simboostr DataLink is connecting to the server and recording your racing data for analysis.
  2. Open the session in the Simboostr web application to check how much time you lost on different sections. This way, you get an overall understanding on the track sections that need improvement.
  3. First, analyze the Focus section alone. Since you lose most of your time there, it is the easiest section to reach better results in.
  4. Go through the differences that Alfie noticed compared to the reference values in this section. With that knowledge and the use of the Onboard view, you will see the critical points and how to correct them.
  5. Get back behind the wheels and aim to improve the parts that Alfie highlighted for you. Firstly, concentrate on specifically the section that was analyzed. Drive 5-10 laps again, as chances are high that you need time to apply the suggestions.
  6. Open the web app again and check your new results on the section. We advise you not to focus on other sections, only on the one that needs to be corrected.
  7. Practice until you reach consistent good results in that section. Afterwards, you can analyze your performance on other sections.
  8. Make sure to both practice and analyze step-by-step until you reach and consistently keep your lap time through numerous laps. For instance, if you're driving for 10 laps and consistently win 0.1 seconds in the given section, then you've applied the advice effectively.
  9. In case you start practicing on a new track, we suggest that you check the Overall onboard recording to get a general understanding on how to complete the track.
  10. Then compare your car setup with the reference. You can even give it a try and see how you perform with the same parameters.
  11. If you feel like the reference lap time is too fast or it feels undoable at the moment, choose another reference from the Simboostr community that seems more achievable. This way your improvement will be more visible, resulting in a better and more enjoyable practice.
  12. In case you believe your performance could be better, but there is some kind of problem with the settings, check the setup guide function that will help you how to change settings so you can use your full potential.

Wrapping up

There you have it! By following these steps, you're well on your way to harnessing the power of Simboostr and taking your simracing skills to the next level. Remember, consistency is key, so make sure to incorporate these actions into your regular routine. Whether you're analyzing your data, fine-tuning your setup, or receiving feedback from Alfie, each step plays a crucial role in your journey towards improvement. So, keep practicing, keep refining, and keep pushing the limits of what's possible on the virtual track. Happy racing!
