Race car driver heel-toe & footwork - Spec Miata
Click here to see how the race went that weekend: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXYq6Yg4Tjs My footwork in the Spec Miata race car at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. The car is prepared by Ed Railton and Premier Auto Service. This footage was taken at the end of a long test day, during which I seriously burned off my tires. As a result it was hard to get a 1:51 lap time, which is about 2-3 seconds slower than it should have been. I did mid-1:48s when I got fresher rubber. In the video I'm feathering the throttle more than usual. You'll notice the shift from 2nd to 3rd is slower. The 3rd gear synchro is weak in first generation Miatas, and if you shift too fast it hurts the gear. You'll also notice copious left-foot braking in turns 3 and 10. I start the video during braking for turn 11. I was surprised I could find a spot for the Contour down there, but it's got a lot of mounting options and it was pretty simple to get a good angle. Some quick settings changes on the lap top and it was good to go. I like watching the dirt in the footwell shooting back and forth. With nearly 1.5 G, it's like upending a bucket.





Willow Springs Raceway NASA spec miata race
Here are several laps from my 3rd NASA race. I don't have much racing experience (still on my rookie license) but still managed to qualify 15th out of 22 cars, and ended up finishing 15th. I lost 5th gear on the day before but still managed to do okay with only 4 gears. This race track is a ton of fun! http://stateshirt.com/racing http://facebook.com/stateshirt http://twitter.com/stateshirt

MG MIDGET RACING BUILD UP:SCCA NASA RALLY CROSS * 2.2 CHEVY * 5-SPEED * TURBO CHARGER video #2
This is the follow-up video of the radical ride my friend Tom, "Killer", is building. He has really been thrashing on this Monster the past couple of weeks. Waiting on the head right now. It seems like when you have to relay on other folks to do things for you they just don't seem to have the "since of emergency" like us Hot Rod Folks do. Hopefully the head will be finished in the next couple of days so it can be installed and the engine installed and get everything mocked up so it can be permanently installed and before long we will have another vid of this little monster breathing and shaking with LIFE! Thanks, Hotrod and Killer

March 11, 2012 Road Atlanta Miata Crash - NASA HPDE 2 group
This 2003 Miata Shinsen Edition was a brand new build by OPM Autosports in Cumming, GA. They installed cage, seat, Schroth 6 point harness, SPA AFFF 6 nozzle fire suppression system, radiator, brake lines, tow hooks and much more. They also oversaw the painting of the interior and hard top. Their workmanship is beyond reproach. It really was the coolest looking track Miata I had ever seen -- which makes this story so sad (OPM also did ride height, corner weights and alignment for Spec Miata class and provided track side support for this NASA SE event). I was in HPDE 2 group (one step above beginners). I waited three months for the build to complete. I promised myself I would not wreck on the very first weekend I had the car back but ... I did. I hit the inside wall after T3 pretty hard. Personally, I think I went to full throttle too soon at T3. If I had just waited a few tenths longer until the right rear tire had cleared the curbing before mashing the throttle, I think I would have been ok. It's a painful lesson. Here are pics of car after repairs - better than new!! https://picasaweb.google.com/106213036764439306024/2003ShinsenSM

2013 SCCA National Championship Runoffs at Road America
This is the 50th SCCA National Championship Runoffs H Production race as seen from the #99 Toyota Yaris of Jason Isley. Started 5th, but it didn't last long as things went bad in a hurry. In Turn 1 I received a hit in the right rear corner from Chris Albin, who appeared to dip his right side tires in the grass under braking, which knocked the alignment out of whack - fortunately Road America is predominately right hand turns, and the car still worked great in those, but the car picked up a big push in Turns 5, 6 and 8. At the same time two of the leaders, Tim Pitts and Jay Griffin, got together just ahead of me. Luckily just as I recovered the car a gap opened between the spinning cars, and I came out in 3rd place. However, a black flag all reset the field to the previous order for the restart - back to 5th. About mid-point in the time shorten race things took a turn for the worse, I had a run going down to Canada Corner and went for the outside at Kettle Bottoms, Albin started to drift right, I went left and so did he. On a prior lap I had passed him in the same place, on the left side, and I guess he took notes and was not going to leave that door open again. The hit killed the front of my car. With the front now flattened my top speed was limited and the car began to overheat. Was happy to hold on for the 6th and final trophy.
