Goodguys Charlotte 2016 Autocross video

here's the only video I got from the good guys Charlotte event. I only made 3 passes because I couldn't make it around the one turn. Had to back up every time.

I cut the steering stops off when I got home so hopefully will not run into that problem any more!

sweet video! car looks like it has a lot of bite. I still cant believe you're able to fit such wide tires AND cut the steering stops :lol:
Hopefully that wont be an issue anymore.

Hey thanks for the kind comments! It does indeed seem to have a lot of bite now both front and rear. Moving from 225 to 245 has made a noticeable
improvement. The driver needs more practice and the steering is "loose" probably need new steering linkage and steering box rebuild for it to be
closer to 100%....always room for improvement.

Now that I cut the steering stops off I can negotiate a U turn like any normal car so I am looking forward to the next event even though no idea when that will be.

Hey Per I tried that, I even dumped the clutch but I couldn't get it through there. On that run I think I had the rear swaybar disconnected. I was lifting a rear tire
so it just wouldn't swing around like I needed it too. A better driver maybe could have, I need more practice and fewer cones!

Thanks for looking and the comments, you are racing your Monza?

Hey Ken I wish I could tell you but I don't really know. I downloaded an hour and a half long free mix off Soundcloud and grabbed part of it for that video because the camera
just rattles around in the waterproof case creating really lousy sound quality.
