Default Vids from last friday at Firebird Main (Phoenix)

Session 1 - very confused about the line:

http://youtu.be/Eu0sNCA9-ks

Session 2 - my buddy Dick shows me the line through the tower hairpin and the backside looper. I study the ASA truck racers to get the line thru turns 5, 6, 7.

http://youtu.be/GjN_nk6auG8

Session 3 - lots of interesting cars on track, but some are beginners

http://youtu.be/eEDhyYiSvD4

Session 4 - I finally catch that pesky BMW 135.

LOL - I've been subscribed to your vids for a little while now and got to see some of these new ones today. It was cool watching them. Thought I saw you also pass what looked to be a AC Cobra????

I posted in one of your videos asking about what kind of microphone you used to capture audio at the rear of the car. Was thinking about trying the same thing.

Hey thanks. Camera is a Kodak Zi8 with an AudioTechnica 3350 external mic clipped to the license plate.

Very nice, car sounds great and looks like it runs great out there. How do the tires hold up with track days? Hoping to do one myself by the end of the year.

Tires are Michelin's new Pilot Super Sports. They've gotten rave reviews and seem pretty damn good to me. And a treadwear rating of 300 ain't too shabby ! I ran 40 lbs in front and 38 rear.

@lakemg - those old cobras (and cobra kits) seem to have pretty shifty handling. The drivers never look very smooth. Some are fast, some are fast in straight line, but many are not.

I also put a mono to stereo splitter on so both audio channels will have sound.
