Video content from yesterday's Track activities at Firebird West in AZ

Went out with the local nasa region to Firebird International Raceway's West track, starting at 4AM due to the wonderful weather here in AZ (FIR West is a glorified overgrown autocross track with requisite rough pavement). Was to be testing a lemons racer (an Audi Coupe GT), but the car wasn't ready. So I took out my mustang in street trim (running stock 255w pirellis Fr/R) and decided to spend some time improving my control over the car. Here's some videos as I work through that:

Second Session, (adjusted damper settings and tire pressures, sport mode):

Third Session (adjusted driver brain, faster lines and a bit more bravado, disabled advancetrack altogether):

A reference of how hard to drive a good car with a bad setup (bad damper settings, bar settings and tire pressures, cold brain):
This video has some "interesting" locations for passes, a ton of pointby's are given out by me while I try to remove my head from my *** from a line and control standpoint, and a bit of accident avoidance. Definitely worth the watch

Bonus, what happens when you let a Spec944 Regional champ drive it (lots of throttle induced oversteer):

Some pics from the day (I was lucky, just snapped 3 pictures and went to work driving, a nice change for me ).

You forgot to mention the molten center caps!

Oh, and if I may make a suggestion, mount your camera a little higher, your door mirror blocks a ton of action from that angle

Why molten centercaps? Because racecar.

The wheels are Eurotek wheels ( I believe they just make the one model).
