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 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).

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!!!

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!

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.

Labor Day Double 2012 - ITS Sunday Race

NJMP Thunderbolt w. SCDA, stock 93 Corolla chasing a Lotus Elise (part 2)
14 Sep 2009, last Novice Session of the day with SCDA at NJMP Thunderbolt. Chasing a Lotus Elise over the entire session - so much fun lap after lap, my Corolla going faster through the corners and closing in, and the Elise is running away again on the straight. Amazed I could keep up, despite slowing to allow people to pass and braking early to accommodate for some brake fade. Found the reason after the run: my inside front brake pads on both sides were gone and triggered some late-night nuts-n-bolts-turning to get set for the next day. Big Thanks to John for being an awesome instructor!

Rear-Wheel Drive vs Front-Wheel Drive vs All-Wheel Drive
Top Gear © BBC 2000. "Old Top Gear", broadcast on 09 March 2000 [LOW VIDEO QUALITY] Vicky Butler-Henderson (Fifth Gear) tests and compares three different automotive drivetrains: rear-wheel drive (RWD), front-wheel drive (FWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD). NOTE: It must be noted that the Audi A4 quattro was a vehicle developed primarily as a front-wheel and not an all-wheel drive car, with most of its kinetic layout (weight distribution, suspension structure, relative wheel distribution, etc.) conceived for front-wheel propulsion. It has a traction torque bias towards the front wheels. Neither was it equipped with active limited-slip differentials (i.e. front- or rear axles or in the shaft in-between) to distribute torque/traction as per contingent wheel grip. By contrast other front-engined, all-wheel drive vehicles (i.e. Subaru Impreza WRX STi, Mitsubishi Lancer Evo) are conceived from the onset with permanent and symmetrical all-wheel drive systems and are often equipped with various arrays of slip differentials in the front- and rear axles and in the torque shaft, resulting in an altogether significantly different vehicle dynamic behaviour. It should also be mentioned that since the broadcast of this film, several traction systems have been developed, for both front and all-wheel drive vehicles, notably mechanical or electronic differentials for front-wheel drive cars e.g. those developed by Alfa Romeo, Ford, Citroën or Nissan. Finally, it should be noted that the criteria for this test was to determine traction on dry tarmac, asphalt sufaces, and not loose ground such as wet tarmac, gravel, sand, snow or mud, contexts in which the dynamic results would most probably vary. It is generally agreed that they do so in favour of (permanent) all-wheel drive or (selectable) four-wheel drive systems, also given the possibility of dual-range transmissions (including greater torque conversion) © Video Copyrights: Top Gear, BBC & BBC World, 2000.

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.
