Default Video lapping Texas World Speedway

Hey guys, I just finished editing my video from my TWS track day back in February, thought maybe you guys would enjoy it.

BTW, the silver car I catch up to is a BMW M5 (w/ V10)

http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...18782078&hl=en

My basic set up on the car is like I said all stock except for the 4 used hoosiers I picked out of the garbage at the track at a previous event, some had dry rot cracks, but I figured its better than wearing out my already crappy street tires. My brake pads were on their 4th track day there (and these are the stock pads that came on my car when I bought it a year ago) and I have never aligned the car, its just like it was when I bought it. My only real "mods" are my boss frog roll bar and my nice smurf blue hard top (which has grown on me quite a bit, the whole blue/red mix). The body roll in my car is just absolutely horrendous though, I have pictures of me lifting my inside rear tire going around the carousel. I really need to try to get money for some springs and sways (I already bought a set of shocks, just waiting to install them for the springs). I'm not one to boast by any means, but I have had years of karting experience, so I feel I'm fairly proficient at driving on a road course, even though that was my 3rd track day ever.

(And for anyone that nitpicks, my brakes are on the 4th track day as I let my father co-drive my car at a previous event, so 3 track days for me, 4 on the car)

I dont know much about track racing but looks good to me!
I can say dont cross your arms when countersteering ,stay light on the wheel, and thumbs on the outside of the wheel.

looks like you had fun!I just spent this past weekend at TWS.

You should ask for a check ride to move to a higher run group.Since your passing faster cars your probably ready to move up...

Actually, I was placed in the fastest run group, but last time I ran, I never passed a single person as in that group the people could actually drive, and on top of that, pretty much everyone had much faster cars than me. I asked to run in the blue group so I could atleast pass people and enjoy myself!
