A little bit of external footage from last auto-x event
One of the other competitors was nice enough to splice together a few of my runs from two weekends ago. I'm not sure exactly how big the file is, but I would imagine this deserves a DUW: http://media.putfile.com/s220050918patrick
. I easily won EM (not much competition) and took 8th overall. It's only the 2nd or 3rd time I've run the Mustang (normally my Subaru is the auto-x whipping boy) in the past year or so, I'm still re-learning how to drive the car with all the suspension work that's been done over the past couple/few years.
I'm just about done gathering parts for my ABS install, which will also include (I think) an upgrade from a 15/16" to 1" master cylinder to improve pedal feel. As it is, it's just too damn easy to lock the brakes, and there's too little feedback in the pedal to let me know I'm getting close. You can tell in the 2nd run how much more cautiously I approached the same element where I locked them up big time on the 1st run. That over-cautious braking is definitely costing me some time.
We're running again this weekend, hopefully I'll have some in-car footage to post up.
