...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.


Nice save! that off-camber right spun me in my Prelude, the first time I ran Philo.

It looks like you chopped off the gas at just the wrong time+ unloaded the rear. My car does the same thing if i get suddenly off the gas. Try this--you'd be shocked how much it changes things-turn up the idle. Really. It doesn't take much.
Translating road racing to hillclimbing:
Proper tire selection== nothing hooks up on moss or wet leaves.
Staying on the racing line==anything paved is considered good.

Sherm's comment about the black rubber strip being left by the kiwi, yep, that was me.

One wheel drive. :-(

That has been my M3 for the last couple of hillclimbs, Mt Philo and Ascutney II at least, and probably Okemo II. What used to be a LSD is now a completely open diff. Hence the black tire streaks at Philo. That's also why I was complaining of traction problems at Ascutney. I couldn't put the power down on hairpins. It felt like I was losing traction at Okemo and it got worse from there. The diff just spins freely now, it's probably cooked inside. Will check it out in a few days.

Love the vid. Sounds like it has a wheel bearing going bad.
