Met with TheGhost (Carlos) and his buddy Rick today at Willow Springs. What can you say, perfect weather and lots of fun. I put in about 50 miles on track time. Carlos and rick probably got in 100 miles since they stayed the whole day.

Here's a lap.


Here's Ricks Mitsubishi GSR, My R170 and Carlos's R171

Thanks, my intent this outing was to practice the racing line. I wore my arm out giving the pass signal :biglaugh:. Others were faster, but all over the track.

Anyway, for those out there, in the video you'll notice cones representing the turn start, apex, and exit. My challenge for the day was to hit the race line... practice, practice, and more practice...

As to more video, seeing me get passed is boring. The Ghost should have some excellent clear videos if he can figure out how to transfer DVD tape to his PC. Anyone have ideas?

Cool vid Carlos, what's your opinion on the best camera location, the rear window or the the cup holder? I say the cup holder.

btw.. Carlos has a working cup holder mount for the R171.

Well i like the back window mount BUT as you can see by the video the mirror blocks a bit.

the cup holder mount works great but you only see the track i will try to find and upload from the cup holder mount so you can judge for your self.
