Default Re: BlueScooby's 06 STI - Auto-X (Pics&Vids)

Got the vids uploaded. I had 4 runs, but I forgot to record the first one... I should know the times in a day or two, hopefully. I was the only car running in FP, so I was both first and last in my class...haha No idea how I stacked up in "raw" times but probably not well. I think My best time was 45 some thing, but the fast guys were down around 43 or less seconds. I know I left some time on the table at the hairpin/pivot each lap (particularly the exit), but most of the rest of the laps felt pretty decent. Either way, had tons of fun

Oh, and fun fact, the IC sprayer can empty the tank in ~5 minutes of continuous running... haha

So starting with run 2:

Left the car in 2nd gear at the hairpin/pivot and had no power on exit...

Run 3:

Tried to shift into 1st gear at the hairpin/pivot and hit third instead (even worse)...

Run 4:

Finally hit 1st gear coming out of the hairpin/pivot and felt much quicker, but the timing board at the end showed 7.xxx which is obviously wrong. Not sure if they actually got my time or not on that run.

FYI, the weird nails-on-chalkboard kind of scratchy noises you hear is apparently the camera rubbing on the face shield... got a nice little scratch on there now
