Re: HD Videosfrom BIR Trackday (Warpedcow)

Nice videos! I liked watching your car in the tighter turns. It appears to have the initial understeer, but the back end would end up coming around. Were you lifting in the middle of those turns, or was the car naturally kicking out under acceleration?

The low speed turns are all just slight trailbraking (where the R generally turns in quite well) and then rolling on the gas. Back does not come out on the gas in the dry. Wet is another story, but that was a different day a few years ago...
High speed turns are turn 1 and 2. T1 is flat on the gas (it's where the short and long course meet - they separate at turn 8). T2 is slight braking (from 115 down to 100 or so) then turn in on the gas so you come out of T2 around 110MPH).
This was my first time on the short course so turns 9-13 were new for me. The bridge you go under is between 12 and 13, both very sharp corners compared to anything else.
In one of the vids I get a fair bit of lift-off oversteer coming around turn 10, but it's pretty easy to correct at ~75MPH.

Goodyear Eagle F1 summer tires. They didn't hold up nearly as well as the Bridgestone Potenza RE050A Pole Position tires I used to have



Big version: http://www.trackpedia.com/phot...9.JPG

New RE050A tires are on the way from tirerack... I'm going to get the alignment checked too and see if I can get some more negative camber dialed in to the front (that was the front left tire).

Truth!!! The 050A Pole positions rock! Even my Re760 sports look like they held up better than that...
