SCDA Lime Rock Park, 7 Nov 09, Corolla runs Blue Group, session 3 (Part 2)

SCDA at Lime Rock Park, last event of the season on a great fall afternoon. Jon is instructing again, fun factor is high. First day in the Intermediate 1 group: faster cars and drivers, busy pointing people by, working on my line. As always, I am in my 93 stock Corolla (1.6L, 3 spd auto). My favorite track. Nice and flowing, fast in my low-hp car. Had as much fun as the first time I went (see the Aug 10 videos). Notice how at 1:40, I am a bit early at the 2nd apex exiting Big Bend and get on the throttle a little too eagerly: FWD car, understeer, left front wheel hits the dirt. Tried to unwind the wheel quickly, but still had a bit of steering lock left from the corner exit - enough for the difference in surface grip to catapult the car to the right, immediately breaking traction. Took quick opposite lock as soon as all 4 wheels were on the asphalt to catch and recover the car. Impressive lesson on what even a bit of steering lock does if your wheels are on different-grip surfaces.

SCDA Lime Rock Park, 7 Nov 09, Corolla runs Blue Group, session 3 (Part 1)
SCDA at Lime Rock Park, last event of the season on a great fall afternoon. Jon is instructing again, fun factor is high. Watch the introduction by my teddy bear copilot - I rescued the guy off the road a couple years ago and hired him. First day in the Intermediate 1 group: faster cars and drivers, busy pointing people by, working on my line. As always, I am in my 93 stock Corolla (1.6L, 3 spd auto). My favorite track. Nice and flowing, fast in my low-hp car. Had as much fun as the first time I went (see the Aug 10 videos).





Astrophysathingy's V8 laps at Mt Panorama
My gf Ivy gave me the most amazing birthday present - two hotlaps in a V8 racecar around Mt Panorama with FasTrack racing. Video credits go to Adrenaline Video. My driver was Kim "Assassin" Jane who races in the Aussie V8 Ute series. Since I am used to racecars, albeit slower ones, I asked him to not hold back in the beginning ("Two qualifying laps"). Notice my face - it was not scary at all, but very impressive; I was very tense, trying to be as attentive as possible with all senses, and make these 2 laps count, taking in every bit of the track, Kim's driving, and the way the car felt. It was fantastic & unforgettable. Thanks Ivy, Fastrack, Kim, and to Scott from Adrenaline. Hope to drive the track in a racecar myself one day!





SCDA Lime Rock Park, August 10 2009, Novice Run #4 (Part 2)
Lime Rock Park, SCDA HPDE, 10 Aug 2009, last novice group run of the day. My car is a '93 base Corolla, stock engine, 1.6L, 3-speed automatic. No modifications except grippy street tires, a pirate flag decal, and a go-faster-stripe. My first track day, and an incredible blast. My instructor is Dave Gran, SCCA racer and Lime Rock track record holder. Check out his book at http://www.goaheadtakethewheel.com . Thanks Dave, you were awesome!!!





SCCA MARRS4 2014, Sunday SSM Race
Racing SSM is so very close and intense. The Sunday 18 lap race, fighting all race long with the #59 car, and enjoying a huge bump-draft along the front straight from another one. Finished 14 out of 36, similar to Saturday's 13 out of 35, and moved up 5 positions from start to checker in each race. RP Performance gave me a good car, and I am really happy about these results - this was my first race weekend in that class and with that car, and this class has tough racing and good, fast drivers who don't give you a single inch, yet take every inch you give them. Thanks all for racing with you. It was an incredible experience. And thanks everyone at Summit for the friendship and good times in the paddock. I miss you crazy bastards already.

Fastest Summit Point lap yet, going crazy
My fastest lap at Summit Point Raceway so far in my 1999 Honda Civic Si, SCCA ITS racecar. 1:28.908. SCCA WDCR MARRS 13 weekend, 5 Oct 2013. I see it on the laptimer and go apeshit. Car is still not fully ITS developed (down on power, up on weight) and was on old tires. Lap felt incredible.

Final Video: 93' Corolla 2-inch Exhaust and Dynomax Muffler
This is my third and final video of the Exhaust system. Today I decided to get one more resonator installed in addition to the two I had fitted previously. The guy at a different Exhaust shop decided it was best to remove the 10" resonator that was put in a few weeks ago and replace it with the 18" that I bought the other day. Well, it worked. The car sounds so much better when driving now, and there is no more annoying droning at highway speeds or when accelerating at low RPMs. Finally it's not too loud but also not too quiet. So now the system consists of headers, 4-2-1 front pipe, 2-inch piping, no catalytic converter, 1x 18" resonator, 1x 10" resonator and a Dynomax Super turbo muffler. I'm pleased that I finally managed to eliminate any droning or raspiness as I've spent more than enough money on this system so far. Comments, ratings and opinions very welcome. P.S. Don't worry about the slight hints of smoke in the video as this is just burn-off from the muffler and piping. The noise at the very end of the video is a plane going over. Also, don't worry about the trunk/bumper looking deformed in the video, it's just the crappy quality once it gets uploaded to YouTube. It doesn't look like that in real-life.

How to Drive a Manual Stick Shift Car Driving Tutorial
Come and take a ride and learn how to drive a manual stick shift car. This was done as a part of a presentation done for the driving course I took. NOTE THERE ARE INACCURACIES IN THIS VIDEO.

Answers to FAQ: 1) The steering wheel set I have set up is a Logitech G25. 2) Games shown in this tutorial are: Need For Speed Carbon and GTR2. 3) Other games I recommend with the G25 are Toca Race Driver 2 and 3. 4) The music at the beginning is Punk by Ferry Corsten. Cheers!





Understeer: How to make through a corner
In every day, some of the road will be straight and a considerable part of it, with bends. What happens if you misjudge the speed going into a corner, if the corner suddenly tightens, or if you skid over water or oil? Re'em explains the gap between the nautral response and the right course of action





NAAC Winter Driving School - Road Course at Team O'Neil Rally School
North Atlantic Audi Club, Feb 2010 winter driving school at Team O'Neil Rally School in Dalton, NH. My 93 Corolla going around the road course Ken Block - style :). The instructor's (Jon) comments are very educational, especially around the cone slalom following the barn. Most fun was the faaast downhill, coming over the crest, rotating the car with left foot braking, then gunning it down the slope - wheeeeeee! Learned a lot. Met great people. Had a blast.
