Just noticed this thread, so here come a bunch of videos. The first one is from a friend's Droid cell phone, the rest are a logitech webcam. The ones labeled "David" are my little brother, first autocross for him!

Thanks for the compliment! LOL!

One of these times, we gotta get separated far enough on the grid so we can each ride shotgun a couple times and compare notes.
I just parked next to you both days so we had some fOCUS rep on the grid for a change.

Won't have my vids up for a bit.
I'm way to friggin busy right now.

My most recent outing. This time with a new camera! Headed out to Gary, IN to beat up on some Hoosiers (the people, not the tires).

I don't know all the details of the event because they haven't been posted. I'll fill them in when they become available.

Finally, something for you folks.
Here's a vid from the same event (Top Gun / MT Challenge 3) that ZenRanger94 was at.
http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...0&postcount=90

1st run on the 1st day.
Cold driver.
Cold tires.
Cold track.
Cranked up rear shocks.
WOOOOOOO!!!!! at 0:52 into the vid.



By far my worst run of the weekend, but amazingly enough it wasn't that bad of a time compared to my best for the day.
This run was a 1:41 and change, and my best for day 1 was a 1:37.878.

In retrospect, I did what I always do.
That is, I tell myself I'm going to take it easy on the 1st run and get a "feel" for the course.
Yeah, right....as soon as I leave the line that thought is long gone every time!!

I'll have some more vids (with less sliding) to post when I get some time.
Enjoy this one for now.

And, GLU...check out the shuffle technique (hands) in some of the tighter sections.
We can talk about it till we're blue in the face, but a pic (or video in this case) is worth a thousand words.

-------------------------

Oh...video comment...
WTF on the quality?
Is it PhotoBucket (compressing the video) or something else?
The vid looks WAY better on my computer.
Is YouTube better quality, or do I just need to upload a larger file?
(The video I uploaded is 5mb)

That was pretty slick right there wasn't it?
Plus, the little bump in the track (mid-turn) that unloads the suspension doesn't help at all.
