2010 Run to the Coast - 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am goes into corner too hot on road course

This was my 3rd hot lap on the Road Course. I was overdriving the car quite a bit as it was the last lap and because letting it slide to the last bit of runoff was a ton of fun. Here, I carried too much speed, especially going over the crown in the road that unsettles the car. A cone was killed.

2010 Run to the Coast - 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Autocross
Here my Trans Am runs the autocross at RTTC 2010. This felt like my quickest run, but as luck would have it, there was some error with the timing so the run did not count. Note that the car shifts out of first gear; the transmission decided it no longer wanted to use 1st gear past 2500 rpm that day, which greatly hindered acceleration.





2010 Run to the Coast - 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am runs the Autocross
Here's the run that actually counted as the timers didn't have any technical difficulties this time. The run was a bit more aggressive, but also a bit sloppier than the previous attempt. Most notably, I was late on the brakes in the u-turn portion of the course which didn't help my time out much.

1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am runs NMRA/NMCA Hotchkis Autocross
Here is my car at the first ever NMRA/NMCA autocross put on by Hotchkis. In this video, I run a 37.9, but hit a cone. A moment after hitting said cone, I bump heads with my passenger. (0:42) My cousin was nice enough to give up one of his autocross runs so he would have time to film this. Please don't complain about camera shaking and such nonsense.
