   - Archive all tires after outdoor season and activate only needed indoor tires from archive. Vice versa when going from indoors to outdoors.

 Tags were introduced in 2.0 and there is lot's of different ways how to utilize those. Here is one example. If you do speed controller testing. Tag the runs, sessions and notes with speed controller name. Then you get one listing with all data related to speed controller testing. Also you can write your comments and findings to notes. It helps you later on to make changes. For example you can write down your own experience how different parameters effect the car. Tags were introduced in 2.0 and there is lot's of different ways how to utilize those. Here is one example.

   - **Check you have correct timing equipment**. You need to have Mylaps timing decoder with very small LED screen(For RC car racing e.g. RC4) and timing loop installed.

Only exception is that you don't need a computer to run Mylaps Practice.   - **Check you have correct timing equipment**.

   - **Data connection for the decoder**. Mylaps Practice works on the Internet, so the decoder needs to have a permanent internet connection. It doesn'​t need to be fast, but it needs to be available whenever someone is at the track. The connection can be e.g. 256kbps 3G connection with unlimited data plan. For example in Finland you can get that kind of connection for 2,90 euros per month. Additionally you need an Ethernet router (depends on the connection type). With 3G connection you might get 3G USB modem included in the price, then just buy Ethernet router with 3G USB modem support. Cheap ones costs around 40 to 50 euros. For example TP-Link makes cheap routers which are ok for the price.   - **Data connection for the decoder**.
