First video from VIR this weekend

Quick vid from my 3rd session on day two. Friend of mine (WVRx7 here) was toying with me..kinda like a cat playing with a mouse

Had a great time, thanks again Fritz for letting me borrow your channel locks to get my calipers compressed for my spare pads.

Great vids. Wish I could hear your throttle inputs so I can learn the track though.

We've been through this. Buy me a PFC and I'll get an exhaust. In exchange, I'll purchase a balsa wood 6 point cage for your FC.

Here's a new one with some actually editing. Crappy Windows Movie maker editing, but editing none the less. Supid Pinnacle Studio keeps crashing on my system.

In such a high speed environment you might consider not looking at your passenger and keeping your eyes on the track ahead. If hearing is a problem get a chatter box. This is not meant to insult you only keep you and those around you a little safer.
