Default 3 laps around Infineon raceway (aka sears point) w/ 3 cameras



This is the first time i was able to get back on track since i blew up my trans in April. Everything went well for the firs time. Anyone know what that red thing is?

Thanks alot to Tim @ AbsurdFlow, Sav for the radiator & cops, Chris for the brake ducts. All quality products that work well and make my car run for entire sessions without any issues. I had an absolute blast for the first time in a long time in this car. Next time i get on track is for Redline Time Attack at this same track in late October.

Red thingy is a Racical sports racer...I think it's the SR3 or the PR6
Awesome little f*ckers....



They make a version powered by a turbo'd Hyabusa engine, the SR3 turbo.
Oh and you can see by the "tag" on the front, that these are indeed road-legal over in Europe!

Thanks a million for sharing this sYck video, after the 4 minute mark it was a good fight with the red sports car. Put it this way you were the fastest car on the track that day, showing some respect.

Not to be seen as negative, but would have liked a rear view from when the red car let you pass.

I have seen several events and from the accidents that happen, must are on that hill and quick sharp turn. Have seen plenty of cars slam the wall right after the hill. Uff, everytime I would see you approaching it was like wow he made it...

And the twisty turns before the straight away are super tricky as the car tends to be everywhere.

Very good driving skills!

Impressive that you kicked that radical's ***. Good job, love the camera angles. I agree though, a rear facing shot would be ****.

I wish i could get video that good. I love rowing through the field for the first session of the day, then I'm irritated and want space for the rest.

A buddy of mine, I wish i had a 7D, but i sure as heck wouldn't hang it from the wing! DSLRs have "rolling shutter" which is annoying when your watching it later. I tried... Hardware is holding up great Tim!

Tial, I enjoy its sound too! Wish i could hear it a bit more though.. Helmet muffles noise pretty good.

That's a rather large statement to say, considering one cant see all the cars on track just from a single 3 lap video. I certainly wasn't the slowest though

Agreed, i had a rear shot but the session i filmed that one with the inside camera shut off like right in the beginning so i couldn't really use it. I have been wanting to do a multiple cam on the car for a long time now so i sorta forced myself to do it again, and ended up moving the camera to the other side and face it forward.

If you don't want that, would you post a drawing of it for all to see? I could whip it up in Catia and we could have an easy to make brake duct for the masses.

Edit: PS, I see you're using rubber hose for your oil cooler, I'm about to order my own lines, and could save $17 by going rubber instead of stainless steel. How are they holding up and would you of gone SS if you could have mulligan?
