It was on my California/Nevada list, lol! The corkscrew isn't as crazy as I thought it would be. There's a lot of compression there so your car just gets sucked into the ground...pretty cool.

Yeah, it's pretty drastic. You especially notice on the climb up to the corkscrew. It's a BIG hill.

Thanks, video will be posted as soon as I can get to it.


For those wondering, the Air Induction hood makes a big difference in under-hood temps. Approx 20 degrees cooler on my car. I can't get the car to break 200 degrees in 90+ degree weather. That's running it HARD and with stock cooling, stock T-stat and orange water. Now, the only time I use my fan switch mod is at idle.

not the best video, but here is my best run from my first autocross weekend.
Advice is appreciated.

Thought ya'll might find this one amusing. First run on my Hankook R-Comps. Like I said in my first post, this was only my second autocross in my car and third I've ever run. So there is definitely a lot of room for me to grow.

Ill bet that got the adrenaline going a bit, ehh?

I know about that all too well. One was going about 85mph around turn 6 at Laguna Seca. I ended up in the dirt a little bit from the wall. The other was at Reno Fernley Raceway around turn 23 at approx. the same speed. I over corrected the slide, and it whipped around the opposite way which put me in the dirt. Needless to say, those experiences taught me how to keep it under control. I have gotten the ass end a bit loose since then and kept it under control.

Just got back from Infineon Raceway last night.

Video
Infineon Raceway Fast lap Nov 10 2012 - YouTube

Then here is my best lap at Thunderhill back in May. I wish I wouldnt have lifted at the end when I saw the checkered flag. If I would have powered through to start finish like I normally do before braking, I might have even had a 2:10. Also, I cant wait to get back there because my braking has improved A LOT since in this video. I am interested to see what my next lap time is.

Oh and sorry that the audio is so low, but I am having trouble adjusting my contour cameras audio setting. I have it at full blast, and this is still all I get. If you have a set of computer speakers or good headphones, you can here it better.

It was a little un-nerving to say the least lol. I had plenty of room once I had gone off the pavement though, so I can only imagine what it's like when you see a wall coming at you. Although, once I had gotten out of the car, my buddy was wondering why I was shaking so bad haha.

That must have been fun.

Just a suggetion. Run street tires until you've have more seat time. Would hate for you to ruin a set of R-comps so early in the game.

Yeah, I was kinda worried about them being messed up but I got lucky and there weren't any flat spots in the tires.

I have some pic's coming from my Road Atlanta Track day last Saturday...but here is video that I took.


The day did not go anywhere near the way it was supposed to go. After my 1st real run, my waterpump decided it was working to hard, and started crying...day over.
