Check out some of my older vidoes on youtube (fsp505), you'll see the lights I rigged for this in my car.

It helps for knowing when you are actually braking and applying power on corner exit. Cheap way to get basic data in your videos for analysis.
wow. that's actually a really good idea. when I first read your post, I didn't think it'd be something I'd want to do, but after watching your video, I can see how that would be very useful in studying your lines/braking/accelerating on the track. Seeing as how I've only got two lights, I'd do the red for braking and green for WOT. where'd you get the microswitches from? and how would you connect them? if it was at the throttle body, how would you do it for WOT? not sure how you'd fix/mount something to that. and for braking, was that any amount of braking force? or for like 1/2 or full braking?
