Default Crazy foot cam video

Posted in motorsports forum, please follow link. This is some in-car footage of Patrick and Nathalie in 2004. I just watched this for the first time myself last night and I think it is pretty cool as you really get a sense of what it takes to drive mental fast.

No prob, I really like to be able to see the footwork-shifting etc and actually find it more exciting to watch sometimes then full on out of car footage. It's neat to see what it is actually like driving these cars at those speeds on that kind of terrain, and winning.

Jamie, any possibility you can provide a link to the vid in a different format like AVI or WMV or something? I updated my QT but it still doesn't play the vid.

OMG
he can shift faster than a sequencial gear box!@@
who needs SMG when you can shift that fast!

and...how the heck did he brake and downshift w/o stepping on the clutch.
i know you can shift gears w/o engaging the clutch at cirtain RPMs, but brake and downshift w/o clutch
crazy!!!!!

thx Jamie for the great video~~!

I updated my player, and it's still imageless... I'm re-installing it now

edit: I re-installed my QT... now it has no sound

edit again: I finally got it working nicely...

speaking of the video... I wonder when I can shift like that

Ahh He confused me!!
I was trying to pay attention to him driving the car and shifting but his foot was so fast that I couldn't even see!!
I am curious about the downshifting without engaing the clutch too...

Well done Pat. I'll be watching that video a few times over. Only thing missing from that video was a third between the seats camera so you could the terrain. Where was that by the way?

But you have to rev match, don't you?

I've never run a dog-box before, but I've shifted a Countach and a Pantera. They're both horribly difficult trannies to shift, as both need double clutching and rev matching.

I think you can just ram dog boxes into place if you're "close" to the right revs or just do it really really fast like pat does. Thats just what I was told cause I've never driven one either.

hey thanks for the props guys

the way the dogbox works, its better to shift it faster than slower

I try to clutch as often as I can on upshifts - it saves the box because the torque can round the dogs off - but when the chips are really down (i.e. have to make up lots of time) and the rally is almost over you can get away with a few hundred throttle blip upshifts - so I try always to clutch on upshifts (when practical).

the clutchless downshifts - you can 'rev match' with the brake pedal really. Modulating it a bit unloads the gearbox so it just pops out of gear, and while its moving a jab on the gas lines it all up. Its actually smoother to just not clutch even if you dont match on the downshifts. The deceleration is so rapid and you dont use engine braking so its all unloaded really. but you have to keep the wheels spinning/gripping under braking, and if you clutch you can start a potentially dangerous slide.

In fact, you can easily clutchless shift a synchro box too, but you have to shift really really slowly (like 2-3 seconds a shift). There is also a rally technique to clutchless shift the sychro boxes but lets just say its very very hard on our glass boxes... I will look to see if I have any footie of that but its a weird setup.

Anyways, You get an idea how abusive the rallying is on the cars from watching this. This is just a few minutes of a 25 minute stage, one of over 20 that rally...

It took a long time to learn how to not break the gearbox - I sort of have a bad rep on making them last - but the last few years we've had no more failures (only an input shaft at ojibwe).
