Looks cool? No, it looks slow. Going fast looks cool. Man, that animation was way too easy to make, I am going to have to make more...

I think I've already sidetracked this thread too much. I could try to explain in a different thread, if you want to make one.

"2011 Autox Video, Pix and Results" sounds good to me. Just keep the criticism constructive and succinct.

yes Mike, the stupid suction cup failed and when i pulled out of grid, CRUNCH it was toast. the guys at gopro are awesome, they replaced every piece.

spinning out looks cool, but also gets you last place :)
those are awesome animation thingys!!

i forgot to put up my results..

good job Mark, you're doing well. And I thought those cups were supposed to withstand 200mph on an airplane.

edit: btw, eliaslincoln..... Pendulum FTW :)

hopefully I'll get to an event this summer

not if the surface is dirty or curvy... aka "almost everywhere on any car"

yep, and where i had it was as flat as can be and got a wash the night before.
i don't expect every unit to work. unfortunately it was mine that didn't!

i WISH that was raw, that was the juicy pax!
but i'm dreaming with the kind of cars and drivers that roll in our region. i will be towards the top when become more experienced. at least that is my goal. sophomore season so hopefully i improve. my goal is to finish in the top 15 in points overall. last year i was just outside of 20th.

raw was 33rd day one
29th day two
