GoPro Mario Bonfante's M3 Race car KripTrol's Test #2
Thank You for watching!
We finally were able to get the new KripTrol setup all dialed in by the
last session of the last NASA event of the year!
We had a few issues but the car is still in one piece and I think we
finally have most of the bugs worked out.
The incar footage was of the only session of the weekend we finally got the
controls working the way they should. Unfortunately by this time of the
weekend i was extremely fatigued from everything fighting us both days.
This made it to where I didnt want to try and push myself or the car, and
kind of just took it slow getting to know the car as well as the new
We hopefully have all the issues with the controls worked out and tested
now so I am looking forward to our next time out and really getting to push
myself/the cars limits.
We got a ton of R&D done this last weekend at Sonoma Raceway for NASA's
last race of the year.
I look forward to correcting the minor issues we are dealing with and can't
wait to see what next year has in store!
Stay posted for the Keep Em Spinnin video of the whole weekend later this
Hope you enjoyed the video and always Keep Em Spinnin!
And a huge thank you to all of my sponsors, friends and family that have
stood by me and helped make any of this possible!
