All of these are pretty long, mostly complete sessions. And in my slow brick of a car, they seem pretty slow (I like to think its more my silky-smooth style :D)

Here's one of your old car winning at VIR in my last "rookie" race:


The driver gets more and more distracted as the race wears on. "Don't throw it away, don't go off, don't get DQ'd for passing under yellow!"

05-23-2008, 05:11 PM
Frank, do you have in-car from CMP this year?? New track layout.

05-23-2008, 11:45 PM
I have Saturday's race but unfortunately, my camera mysteriously turned it's auto-off back on so I didn't get Sunday's race. I haven't uploaded Saturday's video to my PC yet.

When will you be going to CMP?

06-04-2008, 11:05 PM
Here's Saturday's race at CMP.

Don't think I'd care for the South Course. Seems pretty short and tight.

Here's another view of the July VIR race I posted above, this time from the Honda Challenge S2000 that started the race between my #2 Mystic Cobra and Jimmy Bost's #16 winged Cobra. Jimmy passes the S2000 and battles to keep him behind (note the dive-bomb tap later in the video) while trying to catch me, while I'm trying to get away and catch the silver ST2 Corvette that I failed to get by at the start.

John seemed to like it... :D

08-08-2008, 08:48 PM
John seemed to like it... :DIt's hard not to giggle from the right side of a Lightning driven hard on any road course. Especially a tight one. Always feels to me like we're doing something that shouldn't be possible. :lol:

The blower whine alone is enough to make anyone giggle. :)

Edit: Just watched it again. Was that a Lightning?

08-08-2008, 09:38 PM
Shelby GT 500 Coupe!! ;)

I didn't mean John sat inside the car, I meant he seemed to like south course when he drove his Mystic around it...

08-08-2008, 11:26 PM
Shelby GT 500 Coupe!! ;)Ah, I thought that looked like the dash on a newer Mustang. The blower whine made me think Lightning the first time I watched it. Forgot about the GT500. Guess I should have visited the front page! :o

Hard to believe it's approaching the 5th model year for that platform. I still think of my Mystic as a "newer" Mustang. Still, with the same blower whine, even more power and Lightning-esque weight (4300 lbs + with driver/passenger?) I'm sure the GT500 is a hoot on track!

Yes I did. :thumbsup:

Sweet vids guys!!

02-21-2009, 05:36 AM
Very nice......more,more,more....

02-23-2009, 07:42 PM
Here is an video of my old mystic at VIR in '07. Playing with Chris in his CTS-V. To Chris's defense, I was on r-compounds, and he was on street tires;)


04-10-2009, 02:25 PM
OK John, here's a short one from your old Mystic in my season finale at Summit. Chasing a Mustang Challenge FR500S running in AIX. Note his late braking from the Goodrich R1 tires and factory tuned aero.


Lost a piece of the #1 intake valve. After tearing it down I discovered that I had also bent all the exhaust valves (and made new reliefs in the pistons) back in June at HyperFest when I hit 3rd gear instead of 5th. My severe distributor gear wear issue that I discovered after VIR in July was no doubt due to the strain of embedding bits of metal into the oil pump wall. Turns out the long metal shavings I was finding earlier in the year weren't from the cam thrust plate after all - the exhaust valve spring dampers had cut up the shims.

For this year I replaced the 10 year old Manley valves with Ferrea 6000 series and the similar vintage springs with stiffer Comps that should keep the valves away from the pistons at 7k rpm (in case I ever miss that shift again), plus I had the spring pockets cut for tool steel seats. Hopefully it'll be a long time before I have another motor related DNF.

Here is one in the Panoz

<embed src="http://videos.streetfire.net/vidiac.swf" FlashVars="video=15d33c9e-6233-48c5-b8a4-9c23004de620" quality="high" allowFullScreen="true" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="428" height="352" name="ePlayer" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"></embed><br />

This was 2 seconds faster than my previous best. I have another clip I'm working on that has 2 consecutive laps averaging 2:16:50 seconds per lap. Not bad for 300 rwhp and 3710lbs with driver, IMHO:D

06-09-2009, 09:35 PM
That looks like a fun track...was that a 2000R in front of you? He looked like he was kickin it too. :thumbsup:

Here's another clip with 2 of my fastest consecutive 1:35:00 laps on Day 2. The car at the beginning of the clip (black Cobra, dark green rear bumper) is Jimmy Bost. He was nice enough to let me by.;)

Very good video of the tenth anniversary Ryan! :thumbsup:

This is a good video where the driver is passing Pete in the Ford GT and it looks like Allan but if it was on Saturday, it wasn't Allan, it had to be someone else...

Here is one of me at Roebling Road last year playing with the Porsche club


10-06-2009, 08:58 PM
Very good! You liked passing that GT didn't you? :rotf:

10-07-2009, 12:58 PM
Yeah I did hahaha
But did you notice how he pulled away from me on the long front straight? And I was hitting about 145-150 mph at my brake point into turn one. The GT guy runs fairly regular with the Porsche clubs at Roebling Rd. Beautiful car.....and he was on race rubber too

10-07-2009, 03:38 PM
Oh, I noticed how he pulled away from you. I think if he had a tad more seat time, you would have never got close to him. :)

I didn't see any videos of the VIR Grand Course, so here's a video (http://www.vimeo.com/13108520) of my friend in a C6 Z06 chasing me around this awesome 4.2 mile circuit! I'm in the dark grey Corvette C5 Coupe.

Here's some video from Watkins Glen, NY back on May 31, 2010:

Here's some video from Calabogie Motorsports Park, Canada back on August 20, 2010. A friend let me borrow his data acquisition transponder and overlaid the data onto my video for me. What a great learning tool!:
