Now that's just plain funny. I'm close enough to Oklahoma that whenever I hear banjos I gag the throttle just in case. They likes to throw their beer cans at my little car and rifle racks make me nervous.

I ran 1:40 with 94whp, 5.5" wheels with 205 azenis, crappy Bilstein w/GC, and very little skill.

Excellent quality! I like the high-def and the Traqmate data stuff.

One thing to make future videos even better: raise the camera a little higher to shoot down across the hood.

P.S. Mechanic's gloves for the win!

Thanks, Actually it's recorded in SD and chopped down even more for web posting by Traqmate. The sony cam is awesome on HD but it eats up space and I don't believe you can do the overlay on HD (Traqmate is working on that).

On SD mode it recorded all sessions for three days and had enough left that I filmed the CMC Shootout race from the stands. All on the internal memory. Impressive. I'll try and get the mount up higher like yours, it is better that way..

LOL on the gloves. I left my helmet, suit, gloves, shoes and some spare parts at home. DOH! I kinda like the feel of the mechanic gloves though..On the Friday session I had to buy a long sleeve tee to get on track (thankfully I had jeans in my clothes bag). On the second session I was blackflagged for having the long sleves rolled up

Those porsches were retarded fast. There was some "concern" that the 13 car was really in TTA (had no paperwork). And the purple one with like 500hp made an "interesting" pass on me on the inside of turn 1 diring a session. It was clean and exciting, but he sure had confidence in me seeing him and not coming down on him. Nice guys.

The guy with the RX-7 (450hp?) ran alot better at Hallett that TWS. I spoke with him and learned that it's his home track and this car was his "race" car and the RX at TWS was his street car and broken ('member the rolling roadblock..).

When he gridded 2nd on the very first session I was like wtf? Sure enough on turn 1, I see him put it into the tire wall at the outside entry for the turn? Later he said that when he downshifted, his knee hit the key and turned off the car. LOL.

When he got down into the 1:24's (after putting it into the wall earlier) I had to give him some props. The sick TTU vette got a 1:20 i believe. That must have been a fun ride.

He was really nice about blocking and brake checking John and I at MSR-C.
