Vid from Sears Point last month

Sorry it took so long guys Here's video from Sears back in May running the NASCAR configuration (with the chute).

RX-Heven with his white 'vert and I have a great run through the back section about halfway though.

Enjoy!

ps. Yes, I know, the camera was too high, I just got a new digital camera and didn't quite get the location right..

Nice vid! Great quality. I just got a 12v VCR and a spy cam to try in my car. We'll see how well it works.

Cool vid. I could really hear how much my slow vert was holding you up out of 7. Where is the rollover?
Did you get your car back together for the event last weekend?

Will do, thanks a lot Paul, see you there!

EDIT: tried to register but there's a few options, which do I sign up for...I'll be running a slightly modded FD and my friend will have a slightly modded E36 M3. Thanks!

I'd sign up for HPDE Group 1, you'll want an instructor for sure if this is your first few times out on track.

Thanks for the advice Paul. I read the explination of the different Groups and I'm not sure if I'd be too happy in Group 1 though...one thing I read that I didn't like was the lead and follow thing and slow pace. I'm going to want to drive my car as fast as I feel confortable, not the instructor, and ESPECIALLY not the lead car! I had to do that lead and follow **** in a Mustang Cobra at Bon Bondurant school of high performance driving and it sucked ***! Do you think I should still go for the Group 1 or do you think it might be a bit frustrating for me??

Hey Chronos,

Typically here in Norcal they run half of group 1 and half of group 2 together in one session, and the other halves in another session. So moving to group 2 isn't a lot different, except no instructor.

It's not going to be anything like Bondurant where you're limited to speeds or anything, and if you find that you're doing really well, you can request a group change from your group's lead instructor.

I'd go with group 1 since you really want an instructor your first time at the track.

Allright, I'll go ahead and sign up for group 1. I'm trying to get about 3 or 4 other people to come out and play too; one of them has a 2250lb FD with fully built and tuned 20B Hopefully we'll all make it out there!

Thanks again!
