Autocross and track videos

I had not seen a thread about this yet, and one of the things I've found is that seeing other people's videos, especially in the same car, helped me figure out things I wasn't doing right, so it might be useful for the whole group for us to have a thread to post our videos for others to check out and learn from, and maybe even get some constructive criticism!

I'll start out with my two videos I have in my car. For these, the car was completely stock with 265/35r19 front 285/35r19 rear Goodyear Supercar 3 tires and traction control completely off.

Nice work at Gingerman. That, Grattan and Mid Ohio are what I would consider my home tracks. 1:41 is pretty quick around Gingerman.

I think my best there was 1:43 in a Ď14 GT Mustang.

If you havenít seen it there is a Lap Time thread a bit further down where people post their times and videos.

Thanks man! I'm expecting with nothing more than a brake change I can get into the 1:38's....I had to back my braking zones down a TON because the stock pads just couldnt get it done. I actually havent been out to Mid yet...theres always a national event or something going on that prevents me from going...but Grattan is a ton of fun, and a great place to get cool jump photos to impress friends with lol

I did see the lap time (and link to the one thats actually updated) but figured having one for autocross would be good too.

True, I don't think this forum has AutoX specific thread. Good place to start one. Nice driving and looking forward to more videos next season

1:38 is aggressive but I think you'll be close with better pads and fluid. You HAVE to check out Mid O. It's like a larger version of Grattan with more elevation change.

I have my own lofty goals for next year. Currently sitting at 8:38 BTG time on Nordschleife and my life goal is to be at 7:55. I need to find 43s and I have 1.5 seasons to do it. I still have a lot of line changes to make as this was my first time there, and I'm still on factory MPSS. That place is scary as fcuk so geining confidence is what I need. Semi slicks and driver mod is how I get into the 7s. I hope

How you liking those Goodyear's? Any rubbing in the front?

I'm looking at a new set once my PSS wear down. Did a couple auto x events recently and was really satisfied with how the car performed for being stock.

Not a video but here's a pic of a couple of M2Cs running Daytona in early December. I didn't get to meet the owner of #73... maybe a member here?

Here's a lap around Roebling Road Raceway last weekend. Short track but tricky in surprising ways!
