Great video between you and SW at the TX2K2 road racing event Andi! I enjoyed it a lot!
I assume you're referring to Jason Gibson's sweet road course video from my Tx2k2 recap pageSteve Theodore said:Great video between you and SW at the TX2K2 road racing event Andi! I enjoyed it a lot!
Get the Divx codec... I realized this a few hours ago and added the link under the video. Then I erased it by mistake a couple hours ago. My bad. It's fixed now, there is now a Divx link under the video.. or better yet, goto www.divx.com and download divx5.bwill said:Hey Andi,
I tried loading your video but for some reason I can get the audio but not the video part. Quick time says I am missing a compressor not found on Quicktime site or something like that. 99% of the time I can play quicktime. This is the second time I have ever got that message. Does anyone know what compressor I am missing and where the heck I can get it? Video sounds wicked though. Man I want to see it.
Nope.. just driving style. I had a suspension that is setup to oversteer MORE than SW's, and a single turbo that kicks in much harder and is 10x more difficult to modulate on corner exit.... He just likes driving sideways, I do too but not on timed laps.Spool said:Great Video!!!
Looks like the suspensions on each car were setup very different.
Good try, but like I said above.... he was driving it that way.... and I was doing my best to avoid drifting as it's SLOW.It appears as though Andi's car understeered quite a bit, could be driving style. Whereas SW's car seemed to overseeter, and flick the backend around just the right amount to fling the car around the turns.
It's just not your night is it Maury? I had more power (T64 @ 500rwhp vs his stock twins @ ~440rwhp)... albeit he did have the better powerband as I recently discovered that singles are darn near impossible to modulate on spool up... heh.It also appeared that SW has a bit more power down the straights...so maybe that extra HP is what brings the tail around in the turns. Dunno.
Thanks.Wish I could have been there!
Did SW get the fastest lap time on this trial??? Or, was this Andi's fastest last time?

2nd gear. Modulating the throtle like crazy...Spool said:Andi...Sorry...thought that was his T72 car. Guess his HKS TI(?)exhaust note was quite a bit louder and the cameraman zoomed in a bit on the 2nd/3rd straightaway pass....it made SW's car look wicked fast.
So that's basically how my car looks on the street right now at BPU+++'s.....very SWEEEEETTTT.
What gear are you in when exiting the tight corner coming off the long back straight??
For just going to the track to play, I probably won't run slicks. It's just too expensive and I don't have a method to get the slicks to the track since I just drive the Supra and don't trailer it.bwill said:So Andi,
Are you going to bite the bullet and get some "cheater slicks" too? If you run track events it only makes sense to run on tires that are made to run at such high temps because even BFG KD are going to fall off some after repeated laps. I prefer tires that pick up paper cups off of the pavement in the paddock they are so sticky. Plus you don't run through your good street tires so quick (I run through my crappy ones very quickly) and don't heat cycle them so bad. In my neck of the woods showing up without Hoosiers or Kuhmo Vicoracers/V700s gives one a good excuse but not as good a lap time. Race tires are prevalent. When you spend God knows what on Single turbos, VPC, Piggybacks Intercooler, Headers, Wastegates, AP brakes, Teins, Bis Ass Sway, racing tires is chump change at that point. Hoosiers are faster but Kuhmo Victoracers last a buttload longer and are almost as quick run at the right tire pressure.
