I have a bunch more photos that I'm still sorting through. Once I'm done I'll post a link to the album for everyone. Hopefully when we go back for the WC I'll have enough time to do it again and we'll post them on the CEFX site also. I do have some short videos as well, they'll be in the album too.

Hope everyone likes the shots.

Rick

Rick,

Thanks for the pics, yes please do post a link when they are all downloaded.


That bridge is pretty interesting, I have an idea. Ray Woods is going to video tape the worlds, I think it would be pretty cool if he were to mount a camera on the bridge looking down to the track. I think that would be a cool way to see the speed and power of the cars. Before anyone says it, for those who have never seen his videos, he uses multiple cameras and from many angles.

I have attended real F1 and Champ car races in my past and have been on track bridges when the cars are running and its extremely cool to see them rush underneath and squat "a little bit" going away from you. I wonder how our cars would look, especially if they are powering out of the previous corner.

Steve

That's 85 mph, close to what 18 wheelers do in the States, right? Chicken J/K

Do you know when is the OS .21 XZ will be out? From your other post, I m under the impression that it is as fast as the other Italian mill.

I'm sure his was heavily modified.

But then, I can tell you that the old version was very quick. Not in stock form but I did a lot of work to mine and the last bit of work I did really brought it to life. That thing was screaming around Ft. Meyers in practice before it finally suffered a catastrophic failure
