Most of the pictures I took were with Sherman's camera, but I have some posted here.

Thanks to the organizers and workers for another memorable Philo. Sunday was great! (Sorry I missed Saturday...).

Here is my quick run from Sunday (run 7) from inside the car. http://vimeo.com/30728007
Here is the same run from outside. http://vimeo.com/30713362
Understeer and squirrels: http://vimeo.com/30740591

Here is a youtube version from inside:


And the door view:


Here is the video where I went off at the rock. Sherm's comment "oh, I could tell you weren't going to make that". And then I had to swerve at 75 MPH to avoid a squirrel:

A view from the rock:
I've come to the conclusion that there is no really good way to get around it-just some ways that suck less than others. :? Everone I talked to said the same thing-"I always screw up that turn." It may feel that way in the seat=but watch 34 other cars try and you'll agree. Walk it sometime-you'd be suprised how much different the entrance is from the exit.
heres some pics-shot by myself + Luke.

The long rubber strip is from the Kiwi. :o

Proper tire selection== nothing hooks up on moss or wet leaves.
Staying on the racing line==anything paved is considered good.

Sherman... could I get big images of the performance machine that we were driving so that I can include it in the video?

Thanks

This is my best of the weekend. Not even a personal best. But I had been working on the slow spots and improving...



...and the next run I decided to see if I could push a bit more into check 1. Better off the line and about a second quicker and 3mph faster to turn 2. For some reason I felt the need to start my braking earlier, and at just the wrong spot (see red light in video)...big mistake.

Walter,
What is the big box on your dash? Datalogger?
