Default Show us your videos of your cleanest race...

Thought I would create a place for people to share and discuss videos of their achievements/good times for others to see and appreciate.

Maybe it will open discussion up to helping us all get better at our game!

Well, there is only one video I know of that shows more than 1 second of me driving and that is this one from a series we ran at one of my old clubs...

I'm the white car on pole. I think I keep it pretty clean and tidy, not mind-blowingly fast mind you!

Thanks for sharing

The track didnt look like it would hold much speed to it, quite twisty

Sometimes, for example, a narrower indoor track is more rewarding to race at than a wide outdoor one when you get it right, because accidents, board taps etc are much easier to come by on the smaller track

Although some would say the higher speeds outdoors and getting the braking zones right lap after lap is also great

Here's the vid from March 2010 MN State Onroad Champs. Stock 1/12.

Best event I've ever attended. It takes place at a World of Wheels Car show and consistently has a hundred or more spectators at all times for the entire weekend. Although its sad by the time the A mains come around the car show is basically over and people are clearing out. The first two minutes are missing but it picks up just as I take the lead in the white/orange/red followed by yellow/purple and solid orange.

At 4:22 was one of two stuffs I had for the race when I hit the green car which had parked himself on the tube after the straight.

They're super heavy rubber mats that are around an inch thick. The FastCats crew apparently spent days power sanding down all the edges to get them beveled like they are.

I believe the mats were originally meant for Horse stalls, like these

http://www.youtube.com/user/madisonv...90/C1UYE8pT9bY

Blue and white slash in the very back in the A-main.

And my first Race at Albion IL about 4 years ago in 2007.
I miss this track its not even open anymore.

+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


Funny to see how bad my car was setup back then.
