Cool Autocross Practice Results

The results are in and guess what? Dan is the man! He got fast time of the day in a Subaru! 37.(something) seconds.

Here's a crappy scaned image of the track:


and Here's my times:
39.005s + 1 cone
39.119 - clean
38.876 + 1 cone
39.822 - clean
38.976 - clean
38.380 - clean * my fastest run *
39.433 - clean (trying something new that didn't work).
38.914 - clean
38.734 + 1 cone

We had a blast! We had 6 Impreza's there. Enough of them that the announcers took notice and welcomed us to the group.

-Wish the rest of you could have made it.

Enjoy,

-Red

It looks like everyone had a good time. Maybe next time I'll auto-X to make Bud vote for me.

Yes but I have no idea who. I would love to get a capture of that! If anyone knows who has it on video, please let me know and I will capture it.

I have it on video, but it is kinda shaky, but you can definately see it good and hear the OOOHHH!!!from the crowd. It is clear, just the camera operation wasn't smooth. I can bring it to the meeting, or if someone wants to get ahold of me, e-mail me either at slidewaysmike@home.com or mike.anderson@vitalps.com .

The autocross was a blast. It was great meeting the new members I hadn't met before.

Wow, what can I say about the spin? Lets see...

Well, this was the first time I have autocrossed since upgrading:

Solid End Links Front and Rear
Anti-Lift Kit
STI Tranny Mount
Lightened front and rear bumpers

I think the combination of these modifications really tightened the car up. However, with all the negative camber I was used to running in the past, the car was now way LOOSE!

In short, there was a quick left right chicane at the end of a 4 cone slalom. I took the Chicane on its inside track, trying to dodge the car left quickly when I hit the kink. Only this time I had way too much speed, and the rear end stepped out.

This started a pendulum that got really bad by about the 3rd or 4th wag, and I finally had to give up.

I wasn't going to recover before I hit the cones. So instead of plowing them, I let go of everything, and spun 250 degrees in the corner, not hitting a single cone.

Prelude to terror???

This Friday I am ripping up willow springs. Lloyd is coming, and we have his video camera, windshield mount, and I am going to mount a mic in the trunk area. We are also going to be running Lloyd's R Compound tires. Who knows? By the next meet, I could have some spin footage myself to show you all.

Then again, lets hope not!!!

Talking

I wish I'd seen the spin!

Dan,

Good Job pulling fast time among us Scooby drivers! Be careful at Willow Springs. Practically all the pictures I've of wrecked cars (from sport driving) have been from track days.

Question

Eric,

I have some on-board video from the rallycross at the Prescott Forest Rally. I'd love to capture it and post it. We should get together.

Sounds good Bud.

Just to let everyone know, I have no idea how to capture video but I'm sure I can do it with all the crap I have on my computer.

Do you have SW to make all that crap work?

I actually have a capture port on my video card, but I need to fix a few things on my PC and dig up the right driver & application SW first. (After spending 8-10 hours a day in front of a monitor writing SW trying to make unruly HW perform feats of wonder, I find it hard to stir up the motivation to sit in front of my PC and do much more then check this board and, occasionally, my E-mail.)

I have all kinds of crap. I don't know what this stuff means but here it goes:

Gateway 750mhz. Pentium III

128MB SDRAM

32mb nVidia GeForce 256 Graphics w/ TV out & DVI-D

PCI TV Tuner Card

8x/32x DVD Rom Drive

Read and Write 4x/4x/24x IDE CDROM Drive

I think that is all that would have anything to do with capturing video. I have some programs also but not sure which ones to use. all I know is that I can plug my tv (my comp. is cable ready! ) into my computer and watch cable or a movie while playing around on my computer so it has to be able to do something useful!

Well that was the first auto-x I have been to and I must say it was pretty tight. Even though i didn't run. It was nice meeting all you and from what I saw the times were all pretty close. Maybe I can compete at the next one.

It is on VHS right now, but I can also provide the original 8mm if you need me to.

Not necissarily. It's one thing to have a TV tuner and be able to display video directly to a region on the screen. It's another thing entirely to be able to digitize the video stream and store it to memory or disk.

Does your card have an MPEG Encoder/decoder? Or, does it say anything about video "capture"?
