LOL

Actually no, you're wrong on both counts. But I give you points for trying to pay attention though!

I've only got 7k on my car, so the clutch is still brand new. If a clutch is slipping, you'll hear the engine revving up some on each shift. But if you listen to the video again, you'll hear just the opposite (the engine dropping down a bit in revs as the clutch is engaged).

You didn't hear the tires break loose on the 1/2 shift because the road and/or the tires had something on them. From inside the car, I heard the tires spinning pretty darn good.

When I recently went to the drag strip (with their clean 400' concrete lauch pad) the tires hooked up so good that the car shuddered and lept forward. Hardly no bark whatosever.

Hope that explains things for 'ya!

My muffler shop already uses a "Turbo" muffler.

Flowmaster not required!

Thanks! And believe it or not, my new camera was only $99 at Walmart.



With this camera, I can make a video at either 640x480 or 320x240, and at a framerate of either 30fps or 15fps (I used 640x480@30fps).

All I needed to get was:
  • a 1gb SanDisk ExtremeŽ III SD Memory Card ($49)
  • a pair of Lithium batteries ($6)
  • some Super Velcro mounting strips from K-mart ($3-$4)

Perch that baby on top of the dash, and you're ready to go!

Film times per resolution is as follows:
  • 1hr 28min. @320x240/15fps
  • 49min. @320x240/30fps
  • 25min. @640x480/15fps
  • 14min. @640x480/30fps

And of course, all of those times can be doubled by using a 2gig memory card.
