Fast Miata at Willow Springs 6-12-2010
This is a video shot in full 1920x1080 resolution with a Hero Pro
HD video camera at the very fast "Big Willow" road racing track near
Rosemond, CA. Unfortunately, the YouTube processing of the video during
upload significantly degrades the video clarity and quality in scenes when
the car is on the track at speed. This Miata runs on E85 fuel (85% ethanol
and 15% gasoline)
which burns cooler than straight gasoline and allows use of a higher
compression ratio and higher turboBoost. On the Dyno the car makes about 300
and about 270 lb-ft of torque. It hits 125 mph at redline on the main
straight at Willow Springs with a 200 lb passenger on-board, and lap
times with well used Hoosier R6 tires were in the 1:43 flat area.
Track Day at Streets of Willow Springs in my 2006 Evo 9 MR
4/20/2007 - Track Day at Willow Springs Raceway in Rosamond, Ca. My friends
and I attended a public track day hosted by Redline Track Events. This
video is half a session with 3 camera angles during a light rain. The
lightly modified Evo hangs on to the pavement and dominates the track.
Adding an Auxillary Input to a Toyota JBL Stereo
How to hack an Aux input on a Toyota JBL Stereo from a 1999 Toyota Solara.
Model # Fujitsu Ten 122000-09200101 or Toyota part number 86120-AA020.
Also illustrates the process of removing and installing the stereo from a
97-01 Camry and 99-03 Solara.
The hack relies on being able to trace the output from the tape deck to the
equalizer. Solder two R&L wires to the output pins of the equalizer chip,
which in this case was clearly labeled on the motherboard. Use a 3.5mm
stereo extension to route the wires outside the stereo into the console,
where you can connect an MP3 player, phone, bluetooth headset, iPod or
Enable the tape or FM radio mode to open the auxiliary port. Mine will
automatically over-ride the audio coming from the FM source. The tape head
can be disconnected to remove static.
Yamaha R1 at Willow Springs Track Day (Big Track)
This is my first shake down run, still setting up suspension and ride
height. This is also my first time on a 1000cc bike at Willow. If you
notice I never get into 6th gear going down the back stretch, but I do
finally get 6th in the second shake down run. Damn turn 8 is wicked
