Well this is my best run(at least the one that actually didn't get corrupted...)
I have lots to learn and I'm hoping to get a lot of experience this season! Let me know what you think.

it's tough to hear the motor, but it seems to me you are coasting a lil too much. imo, it's either brake or gas. but that's something that goes hand in hand with driving the correct line. if you brake enough and are on the right line, you can give it some throttle all the way around the "sweepers" not bad though. keep it up!

Thanks for the tip. I'll make sure that I work on that. The camera I have doesn't really pick up the engine noise. I should post up one of my botched runs where I found my limit and demolished it bc I pushed waay too hard!

anytime. it's what i love most about the autocross world, everyone is willing to give a tip. until nationals!

again, my pointers are from my point of view, and it's made me better. it may not be the
"correct" advice, but you go faster!
also, if you aren't spinning or hitting cones, you aren't trying!

That was a quick course. Almost straight most of the way.

Nice.

I agree about the videos helping with seeing where you can improve. I wish I had a way to see the video right after the run and get better while still running.

Way to push it. Gotta do it at least once where you see where the car can go.

The run looked good. Nice save. Try to break a little early before a turn then hit the gas to come out of it a tad quicker.

Alot of scrubbing ... what tires are you using?
